​Run

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album The Dynamic Stonewall Jackson (1959).

A bluebird a wingin' his lonely way South
Tryin' to escape from the cold and the drought
He's all alone in the cold grey sky
Fly little bluebird fly, fly, fly

North wind a blowing oh so cold
Poor little bird is so brave and so bold
He just keeps a flying for a Southern sky
His only hope is to fly, fly, fly

Well, he's not the only one that's on that trail
This old boy he just broke jail
Always a runnin', always afraid
The good Lord above knows I've paid, paid, paid

Train whistle moaning oh so low
And I don't even know where to go
I'll just keep a following the rising sun
My only hope is to run, run, run

Well, I was like to give up and turn myself in
But they would only bury me under the pen
So I'll keep a running until the day I die
The thought of this it makes me wanna cry, cry, cry

Train whistle moaning oh so low
And I don't even know where to go
I'll just keep a following the rising sun
My only hope is to run, run, run
