He's a runner and he'll run away. Soon there'll be no man.
Woman ain't been born who can make him stay, woman get away while you can. He's a runner.
He's a runner and he'll run away with the midnight train.
Woman ain't been born who can make him stay,
come the judgement day, come the rain, he's a runner.
There'll come the running, he knows he's got to.
Don't ask him not to or why, oh why, oh why did you leave me and run off with tomorrow?
Now I'm in chains till I die.
He's a runner and he'll run away. Soon there'll be no man.
Woman ain't been born who can make him stay, woman get away while you can.
He's a runner. He's a runner and he's got to run, he's got to run away. He's a runner.
