  • Looks like an angel, so picturesque
    Like she walked right out of the wild, wild west
    She's a devil in a satin dress
    You don't even know her hair trigger's aimin' right at your chest
    By the time you figure out that she gave you the runaround
    You won't know where she's at
    She's a tumbleweed blowin' in the wind come sundown
    Call a girl like that

    Renegade runaway
    She's a sure shot, love the ash off a smokin' cigarette
    Yeah, that pretty face
    Love you, leave you, play you like a heartbreak bandit
    She's an outlaw, a quick draw
    She'll take it all, so don't you fall
    For that renegade
    Runaway, runaway, runaway, runaway
    You better run away, run away, run away, run away

    You'll see her name, alive or dead
    Yeah but take her either way 'cause she's wanted
    If I were you, I'd place my bet
    That she's ridin' off out into the sunset
    With her long hair flyin' 'cross the desert
    Let me tell you, boy, you're never gonna catch her

    Renegade runaway
    She's a sure shot, love the ash off a smokin' cigarette
    Yeah, that pretty face
    Love you, leave you, play you like a heartbreak bandit
    She's an outlaw, a quick draw
    She'll take it all, so don't you fall
    For that renegade
    Runaway, runaway, runaway, runaway
    Oh baby, run away

    Young gunslinger makin' new amends
    Tough as nails under that corset
    Call her renegade
    Runaway, runaway, runaway

    Yeah, that pretty face
    Love you, leave you, play you like a heartbreak bandit
    She's an outlaw, a quick draw
    She'll take it all, so don't you fall
    For that renegade
    Runaway, runaway, runaway, runaway
    You better run away, run away, run away, run away
    She's a renegade Writer/s: CARRIE UNDERWOOD, CHRIS DESTEFANO, HILLARY LINDSEY
