When I grew up in the town of the rising sun I had so much to look forward
To my life had begun
I had lots and lots of friends and my family And they were all concerned
About what I would be

I enjoyed my time at school and my life in my teens And I didn't want my
Life spent tied to machines
So I got my education and a college degree Anything to be the best that I
Could be

All Hopes gone, On The Run

I moved away from town and I found a job Got myself and wife and worked
Round the clock
Bought ourselves a house up around the hills But seemed to spend my time
Just paying the bills

Next thing I remember I got my self into debt Easy to remember and so hard
To forget
My wife she went and left for a banking man Then I put together my
Desperate plan

All Hopes Gone, All Hopes gone

The bank they came and took my house away I didn't have a chance to keep
The wolves at bay
Next thing I remember I was out on the street I counldn't even stand up
Straight on my two feet

So I went into town and I bought myself a gun About to do the wildest thing
That I have done
Went into the bank and I stole the loot The cops pursued me in a high speed
Pursuit

All Hopes gone, All Hopes gone

So I crossed the county line into New Orleans The way my life turned out
Justified the means
It's a bad thing to do don't get me wrong But I've always been as honest as
The day is long

Eventually I was caught and thrown in jail I never knew a soul that would
Pay the bail
Now I'm my cell with the time on my hands Looking back I never had a
Fighting chance

All Hopes Gone, All Hopes Gone
