a close run thing

A Close Run Thing

 

I grew up on Chicago streets

And took some bad advice

I hung out with the wrong crowd

Those guys weren’t very nice

 

I made some bad decisions

Now my wheels are short of gas

And if the FBI get hold of me

They gonna cream my sorry-ass

 

I’ve got to keep on running

I can see they’re closing in

But if I keep the hammer down

It’s gonna be a close run thing

 

They’re in the rear-view mirror

And not too far behind

I’ve got to keep myself together

And pay those guys no mind

 

One day the law will catch me

But god I’ll make it hard

Cause I’m a wanted fugitive

Got to go the whole nine yards

 

I’ve got to keep on running

I can see they’re closing in

But if I keep the hammer down

It’s gonna be a close run thing

 

I’ve made it to the interstate

And if my ride can take the load

I’m gonna leave behind those law dogs

And tear me up some road

 

I’ve got to keep on running

I can see they’re closing in

But if I keep the hammer down

It’s gonna be a close run thing
