I left the front door open. They were gathered at the back. Knew it was time for rollin' as they busted in the latch. Twenty five years gone in eight seconds flat in the setting sun. Like a loaded gun.
I jumped in the car, hit the gas, I couldn't wait. Had to leave this dead town early 'cause my life got started late. Spittin up gravel and I'm clean of any slate in the setting sun. And away I run.
Searchin' for a hot meal. I was searchin' for a home. The nights were gettin' colder and I spent them all alone. Went about as far as I ever thought I'd roam and I just don't know where to go.
Thousand miles over I blew into a new town. Walked the straight and narrow 'til a woman slowed me down. One mornin' I woke up and she had on a wedding gown and she was stunned. 'Cause away I run.
