Run 'em Off lyrics


Album: 20 Golden Pieces Of George Jones

Now when the big bad wolf got in grandma's house
And Little Red Riding Hood was scared as a mouse
Well, just like her I'm scared through and through
That some two-legged wolf'll run away with you

So run 'em off
No use to talkin all day
Run 'em off
Their tryin' to get you to play
Run 'em off
A make 'em let us be
Now if you don't run 'em off
I'll swear your cheatin' on me

Now there's an iceman, a milkman, and folks out of town
They come to visit they just hang around
They act just as friendly as can be
But I don't think they care a thing about me

So run 'em off
Don't talk too long
Run 'em off
So we can be alone
Run 'em off
And make 'em let us be
Now if you don't run 'em off
I'll swear your cheatin' on me

Now once I ended this song but I can write some more
There's half a dozen wolves a-comin' up to my door
I can tell by lookin' it's plain to see
They're not here, darlin', makin' lies at me

So run 'em off
Don't want 'em around
Run 'em off
You'll be the talk of the town
Run 'em off
And make 'em let us be
Well if you don't run 'em off
I'll swear your cheatin' on me
