(John Prine)

You come home late
And you come home early
You come on big
When you're feeling small
And you come home curly
Sometimes you don't come home at all

So what in the world's come over you
What in heaven's name have you done
You've broken the speed of the sound of loneliness
You're out their runnin'
Just to be on the run

Well I got a heart that burns with a fever
And I got a worried and jealous mind
Well how can a love
That will last forever
Get left so far behind

So what in the world's come over you
What in heaven's name have you done
You've broken the speed of the sound of loneliness
You're out their runnin'
Just to be on the run

It's a mighty mean and dreadful sorrow
That crossed the evil line today
How can you ask about tomorrow
When we ain't go one word to say

So what in the world's come over you
What in heaven's name have you done
You've broken the speed of the sound of loneliness
You're out their runnin'
Just to be on the run

You're out their runnin'
Just to be on the run
You're out their runnin'
Just to be on the run
