Down in the holler there's a thriving town
A treasure trove that makes the world go 'round,
When the city barons bring their legal papers and guns,
Oh darlin', don't be afraid to run

When we came to settle here we came to stay,
Maybe raise a family, earn a decent wage,
Now every public servant reeks of suspicion,
So darlin' don't be afraid to run

Darlin' don't be afraid to run,
And don't turn your back on the noonday sun,
Someday redemption will wash everyone,
But there's no telling when that day will come
So darlin' don't be afraid to run

Maybe we'll rendezvous out in nowheresville,
Or maybe we'll find each other runnin' still
Until we reach that auspicious liaison
Darlin' don't be afraid to run

Darlin' don't be afraid to run,
And don't turn your back on the noonday sun,
The people will greet you with derision,
You'll never be their model citizen
So darlin' don't be afraid to run
