John Vanderslice - They Won't Let Me Run lyrics

rate me

I was born

a couple miles from here

my family rented me this house

so my family keeps me near

from 1909

my family's run the town

you step out of line, poor sap

family council will sit you down

one day I fell in love

and of course we fucked around

the morning she threw up

my options were all laid out

I followed through

and now I got two sons

no peace even when you come

‘cause they won't let you run

I got dead drunk

and packed up the pickup truck

got way out of town, I thought

but sheriff tracked me down

they dragged me home

and the family sat me down

they kept me cuffed up and they roughed me up and said:

“we'll never let you run.”
