Merle Haggard - The Running Kind Lyrics

 

I was born the running kind

With leaving always on my mind

Home was never home to me at anytime

Every front door found me hopin'

I would find the back door open

There just had to be an exit

For the running kind

 

Within me there's a prison

Surrounding me alone

As real as any dungeon with walls of stone

I know running's not the answer

But running's been my nature

And a part of me

That keeps me moving on

 

I was born the running kind

With leaving always on my mind

Home was never home to me at anytime

Every front door found me hopin'

I would find the back door open

There just had to be an exit

For the running kind
