Kingston Trio – Runaway Song lyrics

John Stewart

I ain't asking to cry on your shoulder. I don't wanta see your happiness folder.
I got a sing when things go wrong. I gotta sing a runaway song.

And I run (run, run, run, run away) run away (run, run, run, run away), yeah, I run away.
Fly, fly away.
Sneak away. Fly away. Watch me as I get away, anyway. I can runaway.

Show me a man with a pocket full of causes. Says he knows who Santa Claus is.
Talking 'bout a war I should denounce over in a country with a name I can't pronounce.


I run (run, run, run, run away) run away (run, run, run, run away), yeah, I run away.
Fly, fly away. Any way, I can run away.
