It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
trees flew by, me and Del were singin little Runaway
I was flyin'

Chorus:
Yeah runnin' down a dream
that never would come to me
workin' on a mystery, goin wherever it leads
runnin' down a dream

I felt so good like anything was possible
hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
the last three days the rain was un-stoppable
it was always cold, no sunshine

Chorus

I rolled on; the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
there's something good waiting down this road
I'm pickin up whatever is mine

Chorus

Chorus
