She never knew my name
Least not the one my Daddy gave me
I took off the way I came
Moonlight reflecting off the chrome
She didn't want my story, so I didn't have to lie
If I loved her it was only for a night

Chorus:
Living life on the run
You can't give your heart to no one
Your only friend is the setting sun
I didn't do what they said I done
I gotta stay one step ahead
Or one of these days I'm gonna wake up dead
Dropped in my tracks by a bullet from a lawman's gun
Oh, you can't rest a minute
When you're living life on the run

The white lines on the road
That's the only trail I leave behind me
Been chasing highline poles
Ever since the night I skipped out of town
Somewhere in the distance is where I need to be
All I care about right now is speed

Chorus:
Living life on the run
You can't give your heart to no one
Your only friend is the setting sun
I didn't do what they said I done
I gotta stay one step ahead
Or one of these days I'm gonna wake up dead
Dropped in my tracks by a bullet from a lawman's gun
Oh, you can't rest a minute
When you're living life on the run

Here they come now, gotta lay low
Done bent the law till the law got broke
Here they come now, gotta lay low
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Here they come now, they're closing in
Pack of blood hounds gonna catch my scent
Here they come now, now I'm gone again

Yeah
Living life on the run
You can't give your heart to no one
You can't rest a minute when you're living life on the run
No, you can't rest a minute when your living life
On the run
