Well, it won't be long until mornin'
And I know I won't be hard to find
Bloodhound leadin' all the state police
I gotta make it to the Georgia line

I met a girl in Montgomery
She told me she was twenty-three
Turned out she was in high school
Now her daddy wants to walk me to the hangin' tree

Run, boy, run
You gotta move
Run, boy, run
You gotta move

Well, an easy-going rock'n'roll refugee
Booked trouble on a southbound train
The law books say that I'm a guilty man
And I wouldn't get time to explain

Dead run, ain't no stoppin'
'Til I make the border line
Two more miles on a bottom land run
'Til I find a sanctuary in the Georgia pine

Hey! Run, boy, run
You gotta move
Run, boy, run
You gotta move

Hey! Run, boy, run
You gotta move
Run, boy, run
You gotta move

On six-oh-five
Gotta run, oh yeah!
Gotta run, oh yeah!
Gettin' out!
