Runnin' Back To You

Lyrics: John Dawson
Music: John Dawson

Tonight it's cold and the rain is falling
This city's cold and dark just like a tomb
A year ago I wished I had a million
But tonight I wish that I could leave this room

Chorus
But you know I'll come runnin' back to you
Anytime, anyplace, from anywhere
And if you should lose the way
Please don't hesitate to say
'Cause ya know I'll come runnin' back to you

When I left home I was so eager
It seemed like all the world was at my door
Now the spark is out and it's just raining
I haven't seen you in a year or more

[chorus]

Now if I had been working like I should have
By tonight I could've saved the fare
But Lord I've gone, yes, and drunk up every penny
And it's a thousand miles from here to there

[chorus]

Yes if you should lose the way
Please don't hesitate to say
'Cause ya know I'll come runnin' back to you
