The Fugitive

In the style of

Merle Haggard

Lyrics

down every road
there's always
one more city
i'm on the run
the highway
is my home

i raised a lot of cain
back in my
younger days
while mama used to
pray my crops
would fail

now i'm a hunted
fugitive with
just two ways
outrun the law or
spend my life in jail

i'd like to settle down
but they won't let me
a fugitive must be
a rollin' stone

down every road
there's always
one more city
i'm on the run
the highway
is my home

i'm lonely but i can't
afford the luxury
of having one i love
to come along

she'd only
slow me down and
they'd catch up
with me
for he who travels
fastest goes alone

i'd like to settle down
but they won't let me
a fugitive must be
a rollin' stone

down every road
there's always
one more city
i'm on the run
the highway
is my home

i'm on the run
the highway
is my home
