Your mamma told you,
Told you to stay away
Pappa done scold you girl,
Don't hear a word he say
He said,
Over my body
No star-crossed lover lay

You can run, I can hide
And we'll meet each other
On the other side
Don't you worry pretty baby
They'll never take us alive

Tell me you're leaving it,
Leaving it all behind
Better believe in me,
Never treat you unkind
(A little closer girl)
Come take my hand child
I'll love you
For a million miles

You can run, I can hide
And we'll meet each other
On the other side
Don't you worry pretty baby
They'll never take us alive

Save our souls, save our souls
Save our souls, save our souls

You better run, I gotta hide
And we'll meet each other
On the other side
Don't you worry pretty baby
They'll never take us alive

You better run, and I can hide
And we'll meet each other
On the other side
Don't you worry pretty baby
They'll never take us
Don't you worry pretty mamma
They'll never break us
Don't you worry pretty baby
They'll never take us alive
