Lyrics
Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ASCAP
I had a woman, all's she did was run me down,
She changed our love to jealousy, and my smile into a frown.
Now I've been hurt so many times, but I guess I'll never learn.
Now I'm standin' in confusion, I don't know which way to turn.
'Cause I still love that woman, please don't ask me why,
We can make it if we try.

She passed by in a limousine, and slowly waved her hand,
A mink around her shoulders, and her arms around a man.
Now I was so amazed I couldn't find a thing to say,
Just stood awhile and tried to smile, but she looked the other way.
Cruisin' through the city, she almost knocked me down,
I jump back when I hear that sound.

Don't run me down - Don't run me down - Don't run me down.
My nerves are shakin' and my heart is breakin', don't run me down!

Here stands a troubled man who's tired of bein' abused,
I'm tired of walkin' by myself, bewildered and confused.
I've got to leave you baby, but I just can't let you go,
Now I'm inclined to change my mind when tears begin to flow.
Run me down, turn me around, I say no but you do it anyway.
You tell me lies, but I've got wise. What can I say? What can I say?

Don't run me down - Don't run me down - Don't run me down,
My body's shakin and my heart is achin', don't run me down!

{Rod - Solo}
Don't run me down - Don't run me down - Don't run me down
My body's shakin and my heart is achin', don't run me down!
My body's shakin and my heart is achin', don't run me down!

(Don't run me down, Don't run me down - Don't run me down, Don't run me down)
(Don't run me
