Run, Johnny, run – Ralph McTell

(met YouTube-video onderaan de pagina)

Well, it’s over the wall and across the yard
Till he was on the other side
And the cold night air upon his brow
And he commenced to run under the cover of night.
And he never knew he could run so fast
As the cold night air burned in his chest
And his steps faster than his beating heart
And gracious moon to light his way.

And it’s run, Johnny, run
Run, Johnny, run
You better run, Johnny, run into the light.
Of the rising moon.

And the briars and the brambles tore his skin
And there’s times he fell down but got up again
And his steaming breath in the starry dark
He was straining his ears for the guard dogs’ noise.
And that’s why he run through that icy stream
For to throw them dogs from off of his scent
And although he knew it would slow him down
Well they would not know which way he’d gone.

And it’s run, Johnny, run
Run, Johnny, run
You better run, Johnny, run into the light.
Of the sinking moon.

The sun arose in the eastern sky
He stole some clothes from a farmer’s line
And the shivering damp in the morning light
He hid his overalls right there.
Bright morning air for to fill his lungs
And he run to the tune that in his heart sung
And it’s easier now his way to find
Though easier too for them behind.

So you’d better run, Johnny, run
Run, Johnny, run
You better run, Johnny, run into the light
Of the sinking sun.

Run, oh, run, oh, keep on running
Till the moon and no one can find you, Johnny boy.
Run, oh, run, oh, keep on running
Till the moon and no one can find you, Johnny boy.

As the sun collapsed in the western sky
And hung with the world twixt night and day
But a misty moon had begun to climb
And with each tired step a new star shone.

And it’s run, Johnny, run
You gotta run, Johnny, run
You better run, Johnny, run
Into the light of the rising moon.

Run, oh, run, oh, keep on running
Till the moon and no one can find you, Johnny boy.
Run, oh, run, oh, keep on running
Till the moon and no one can find you, Johnny boy.
