Leave This Town

This song is by Thin Lizzy and appears on the album Renegade (1981).

I better keep myself from being busted
I better keep myself out of jail
'Cause I ain't got a friend to get me trusted
That's why my mama sends my money through the mail

I've been down on my luck
I've been down on my wealth
I'm got to stop taking care of business
Start taking care of my health

I've got to leave this town
I've got to leave this town
I've got to leave this town
I've got to leave this town behind
I've got to leave
I've got to leave
I've got to leave
I've got to leave this town tonight

Well, I set off down the main street
With such a long, long way to go
But before I started I was cornered on the corner
Still waiting for my sugar to show

I've been down on my luck
I've been down on my wealth
I've got to stop taking care of somebody's else's business
Start taking care of myself

I've got to leave this town
I've got to leave this town
I've got to leave this town
I've got to leave this town behind
I've got to leave
I've got to leave
I've got to leave
I've got to leave this town tonight

I was fooling around with the sheriff's daughter
She was a real fine fox
But the sheriff he came after
And threatened to lock me in a cell box

He showed me his Magnum
He showed me his shotgun
He shoved it in my face
And said, "Boy, I think you best be gone"

I've got to leave this town
I've got to leave this town
I've got to leave this town
I've got to leave this town behind
I've got to leave
I've got to leave
I've got to leave
I've got to leave this town tonight
I've got to leave

I better keep myself from being busted
I better keep myself out of jail
'Cause I ain't got a friend to get me trusted
That's why my mama sends my money through the mail
