    "On The Run" Lyrics

    Yonder Mountain String Band

    A man stood in the shadows his face was dripping sweat
    He took a break from running but he wasn't done yet
    Looked over his shoulder when he heard the barking hounds
    Dug his feet into the earth and headed out of town
    The town line's far away and
    He won't sleep for days
    Because he just slept with Annie and she's the sheriff's wife
    Now the sheriff's men have got him running for his life

    He should have known that girl was trouble but he wasn't thinking clear
    When she put her hand onto his leg and filled his glass with beer
    But a deputy did see them and tracked the sheriff down

    Just had time to grab his clothes and high ball out of town

    The town line's far away and
    He won't sleep for days
    And even if he makes it, there's nothing he can do
    But hope and pray the sheriff there hasn't heard the news

    A man stood in the shadows thinking about the past
    About all the women he had known and living life too fast
    But he heard a noise behind him, felt a gun against his head
    Should have known the sheriff wouldn't rest till he was dead

    The town line's far away and
    He's six feet in the grave
    He's lying there with Annie, who was the sheriff's wife
    Till the sheriff and his men robbed them of their lives
