Merle Haggard – I Can't Get Away lyrics

I've been runnin' from life
I keep runnin' from life
Hey, I'm still runnin' from life
But I can't get away

I'd settle down if I could
'Cause there's one thing well understood
We all know run is no good
We can't get away

I'd run my thoughts in a glass
Take any way up for a blast
Hey, to tried to get rid of the past
But I can't get away

There's no way out of it all
And I've got no use for it all
Yes, I will run till I fall
I can't get away

Everyone wants to be free
We always want to be free
But life won't let us be free
We can't get away

So I'll keep runnin' from life
Hey, always runnin' from life
I'd still keep runnin' from life
I can't get away

I'm runnin' from life
I'm always runnin' from life
I'm still runnin' from life
And I can't get away
