Bertha

This song has been covered by Los Lobos under the title "Bertha".
I had a hard run
Running from your window
I was all night running, running, running
I wonder if you care?

I had a run-in
Run around and run down
Run around a corner
Run smack into a tree

I had to move
Really had to move
That's why, if you please
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here anymore

Dressed myself in green
I went down to the sea
Try to see what's going down
Maybe read between the lines

Had a feeling I was falling, falling, falling
Turned around to see
Heard a voice calling, calling, calling
You was coming after me, back to me

I had to move
Really had to move
That's why, if you please
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here anymore

Ran into a rainstorm
Ducked into a bar door
It was all night pouring, pouring rain
But not a drop on me

Test me, test me
Why don't you arrest me?
Throw me in the jail house
Until the sun goes down, till it go down

I had to move
Really had to move
That's why, if you please
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here anymore
