Runaway Love

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album One Road Man (1998).

Blue bonnets line a hundred miles of Texas highway
All the way from Kadee to downtown San Antonio
The sun's so hot I feel the steam rise off this Chevrolet
If you can stand the heat, we'll drive down to Mexico

I've got some money we can make it to Laredo
Drop our troubles in the mighty Rio Grande
Come on sugar, ain't you my amigo
We can build our castles in the Tempico sand

I've got the wheel, baby, you can have my shoulder
We'll find forever in the stars up above
No need to worry, you can slide on over
We're riding high on a runaway love
We're riding high on a runaway love

Ten thousand kisses blowing through me like a hurricane
Shoulda left that one horse town a long, long time ago
We'll shoot tequila, watch the sun set over yesterday
We'll cross the border babe and we're on cruise control

Well, I know it's crazy and we might be takin' chances
But goin' nowhere is more than we can stand
I'll be your Romeo, you can be my Spanish dancer
I'll play my guitar in a Mariacha band

I've got the wheel, baby, you can have my shoulder
We'll find forever in the stars up above
No need to worry, you can slide on over
We're riding high on a runaway love
We're riding high on a runaway love

We can leave it all behind, ain't no tellin' what we'll find
Ain't got nothin' to lose
I've got you by my side, lay back and let it ride
We'll be dancin' barefoot by the light of the moon

I've got the wheel, baby, you can have my shoulder
We'll find forever in the stars up above
No need to worry, you can slide on over
We're riding high on a runaway love

I've got the wheel, baby, you can have my shoulder
We'll find forever in the stars up above
No need to worry, you can slide on over
We're riding high on a runaway love
We're riding high on a runaway love
