Words and music by Arlo Guthrie

Running down the road
Make my get away
Everything I told you
Was just yesterday
Yes, You know I'm off again
Oh, and I've been told
You were there beside me
Running down the road

Walking down the street
Meet me down the line
Police car at my feet
They were there on time
Everybody's looking for
Something to explode
How can you afford the time
Running down the road

My feet are getting tired
My head begins to spin
Who of us is dreaming
You or me or him?
Yes, You know I'm waiting
While these times unfold
Looking backward briefly
Running down the road

(Repeat first verse)
