lyrics

I'm kicking stones on the side of the road
Hoping for my baby's smile to welcome me back home
Cause I'm sick, yeah I'm sick to the bone
I ain't gonna tell her what I done
I just walk this lonely road

And I know I just got to survive
To live, to love, to fear, to fight, no ain't going down tonight
Cause I took, I took that man's life
Gotta hit the road, gotta run, gotta go
Before the Furies steal the night

It's just me and the tires, the road and a gun
I'll go as fast as this truck can run
I see your ghost in the rising sun and I say...

Devil can't hang to save my life
And I don't have the strength to hold him back
No the Devil can't stay inside my life
So I just got to run away
Run away
It's breaking my heart so I just got to run away
I ain't got no heart so I just got to run away

Since I been gone I found myself in the sky
Oh preach, Preachers preach, you're talking right at me
And I live to forget what I done
But I can't keep it up, gotta run while I'm young
Till the law gives me mine

It's just me and the tires, the road and a gun
I won't give up my ghost till the West is won
Oh, Mama don't look at what I've become
And I say...

Devil can't hang to save my life
And I don't have the strength to hold him back
No the Devil can't stay inside my life
So I just got to run away
Run away
It's breaking my heart so I just got to run away
I ain't got no heart so I just got to run away
