Running Away

Uploaded .

Another song in the works that I have never been happy with. Now that Mr. Tolar has me feeding raw meat to the Ibanez, this is the result. So, it’s either a rocker, or I’m off my rocker!

It was yesterday
when she said
she’s leaving today
our little girl
says shes gonna run away

She’s leavin now
headed down the open road
she ain’t eighteen
but we let her go anyhow

shes runnin away
cant understand why she would’nt stay
shes runnin away

It was late today
when I heard the telephone
she was so far away
and I heard her
cry for me

She’s lonely now
lookin’ for some open road
she turned eighteen
now we can’t tell her no

shes runnin away
cant understand why she would’nt stay
shes runnin away

another day
when I heard the doorbell ring
I was happy to see
she had a smile for me

she ain’t leaving now
it’s end of the open road
and with her smile
Daddy can I stay for a while

she came back home today

I had an older brother who ran away several times. I never thought of writing a song from the perspective of a parent. Good idea. ER

ouch. Great raw music, with a powerful message sent to the heart of this other protective dad. :-) I liked your use of the guitar as the doorbell.

*and with her smile Daddy can I stay for a while* :-) Love a happy ending, and yes, this is a rocker.

Sorry Paul, I messed up my first comment. You are writing some really good songs, and I can hear the Ibanez chewing!
