RUN ON ALONG

Lady stood up
she put her hand on my shoulder
She said I can’t keep you
’cause I’m way too much older
I love a young man
’cause he’s hungry and strong
I fed you too well
Now you can run on along

I went to the corner
and I got me a bus
It took me back where
I was just me and not us
I didn’t have time to change
my clothes and my mind
or decide if I could loose
something I never could find

I sat by my window
watching hickory trees
They whispered God bless you
every time I would sneeze
I called up the preacher
and he said I was wrong
to hang around somewhere I knew
I really didn’t belong

I walking my doggy
and the night it was foggy
and the benches were wet
and the grass it was soggy
I couldn’t remember
if its May or November
I’m just paying my dues
so I can still be a member

’cause that Lady stood up
she put her hand on my shoulder
She said I can’t keep you
’cause I’m way too much older
I love a young man
’cause he’s hungry and strong
I fed you too well
Now you can run on along
