Run a mile, run a mile to the river
Gonna throw off the hunting hounds
Run a mile, run a mile to the river
Gonna wash away or drown
Well I was only there for a minute
I was only passing through
I was only being friendly
But her pappy said he'd send me
To the grave for what I wanted to do
I should've known when she was so willing
I should've known that she was just a kid
I should've known I was a stranger
And that I would be in danger over
Something that I never did
Run a mile, run a mile to the river
Gonna throw off the hunting hounds
Run a mile, run a mile to the river
I'm gonna wash away or drown
Well I can't believe the story that she told her mom
And daddy and the vigilante crowd in town
That Lolita of the country set the dogs out on me
Lord they're gonna take me down
Well I'd rather swing a hammer in an Alabama
Slammer than to face what's coming after me
I gotta make it to the water, ride it to the border
Let the scent wash off of me
Run a mile, run a mile to the river
I'm gonna throw off the hunting hounds
Run a mile, run a mile to the river
Gonna wash away or drown
Run a mile, run a mile to the river
Gonna throw off the hunting hounds
Run a mile, run a mile to the river
Gonna wash away or drown
