🎸 Intro:

Am  G  Dm  C Cadd9 C




🎸 Verse 1:
  Am
You leave in the morning
   G
With everything you own
   Dm      C
In a little black case
 Am
Alone on a platform
  G
The wind and the rain
   Dm   C Cadd9 C
On a sad and lonely
Am  G   Dm  C Cadd9 C
face


🎸 Verse 2:
Am        G
Mother will never understand
    Dm      C Cadd9 C
Why you had to leave
    Am
But the answers you seek
   G         Dm  C
Will never be found at home
  Am
The love that you need
   G         Dm  C
Will never be found at home


🎸 Chorus:
   Am
Run away, turn away
   G          Dm  C
Run away, turn away, run away
   Am
Run away, turn away
   G          Dm  C Cadd9 C
Run away, turn away, run away


🎸 Verse 3:
Am        G
Pushed around and kicked around
     Dm     C
Always a lonely boy
Am
You were the one
      G         Dm
That they'd talk about around town
        C Cadd9 C
As they put you down


🎸 Verse 4:
    Am         G
And as hard as they would try
        Dm      C Cadd9 C
They'd hurt to make you cry
    Am       G
But you never cried to them
       Dm  C
Just to your soul
    Am       G
No, you never cried to them
       Dm  C
Just to your soul


🎸 Chorus:
   Am
Run away, turn away
   G          Dm  C
Run away, turn away, run away
   Am
Run away, turn away
   G          Dm  C
Run away, turn away, run away
