Album: The Road Less Traveled (2001)
Charted: 34
  • If there's a plane or a bus leaving Dallas
    I hope you're on it
    If there's a train moving fast down the tracks
    I hope you caught it

    Cause I swear out there ain't where you ought to be
    So catch a ride, catch a cab
    Don't you know I miss you bad
    But don't you walk to me

    Baby run, cut a path across the blue skies
    Straight in a straight line
    You can't get here fast enough

    Find a truck and fire it up
    Lean on the gas and off the clutch
    Leave Dallas in the dust
    I need you in a rush
    So baby run

    If you ain't got a suit case
    Get a box or an old brown paper sack
    And pack it light or pack it heavy
    Take a truck, take a Chevy
    Baby just come back

    There's a shortcut to the highway out of town
    Why don't you take it
    Don't let that speed limit slow you down
    Go on and break it

    Baby run, cut a path across the blue skies
    Straight in a straight line
    You can't get here fast enough

    Find a truck and fire it up
    Lean on the gas and off the clutch
    Leave Dallas in the dust
    I need you in a rush
    So baby run

    Baby run
    Oh baby run
    Baby run Writer/s: SHAFFER SMITH, JOSEPH MICHAEL HENRYK R. WILLS, DWANE M. II WEIR, DAN CROLL, QUINCY MATTHEW HANLEY

  • Dave from Wheaton, IlThe feel of it sounds very much like 'Every little thing she does is magic', by the Police. Try listenin' to 'em, back to back.
