lyrics

Well daddy always told me not to mess with the people who could kill you
But my momma always told me that listening was not my strongest suit
So I guess I took the wrong thing from the wrong guy at the wrong time - now I’m running
But believe me baby when I say I ain’t running from you
Got to get me somewhere - got to get away - so I’m headed to the hills - live to fight another day

And don’t you worry baby, I’ll be back for you for sure
I’m just hiding out here for awhile
Trying to blend in, tryin’ to lay low
Trying to remember that sweet smile
Trying to remember that sweet smile

Well a stranger came to town I think they might be on my trail
Time to move on, time to pick up my stakes and hit the road
A man who’s on the run can only go away, that’s where I’m headed
But believe me baby I don’t want to go away from you
So I’m headed down south, where the Mississippi flows
Let the Big Easy take me away

And don’t you worry baby, I’ll be coming back for you for sure
I’m just hiding out here for awhile
Trying to blend in, tryin’ to lay low
Trying to remember that sweet smile
Trying to remember that sweet smile

Well the Jambalaya’s good though the mosquitos seem to want to bite my eyes
And I’ve a sneaking suspicion I’m still being followed by those guys
So I’m headed farther south, I’m going down Mexico way
But I’ll never regret the day I stole you away

Now I’m so sorry baby, I’m not coming back for you
Got to hide out here for awhile
Trying to blend in, tryin’ to lay low
Trying to remember that sweet smile
Trying to remember that sweet smile
