Album: Mama Said (1991)
Charted: 41
  • My mama said
    That your life is a gift
    And my mama said
    There's much weight you will lift
    And my mama said
    Leave those bad boys alone
    And my mama said
    Be home before the dawn
    And my mama said
    You can be rich or poor
    But my mama said
    You can be big or small

    But I'm always on the run (always on the run)
    But I'm always on the run

    My mama said
    That it's good to be fruitful
    But my mama said
    Don't take more than a mouthful
    And my mama said
    That it's good to be natural
    And my mama said
    That it's good to be factual

    But I'm always on the run (always on the run)
    But I'm always on the run (oh)

    Slash

    My mama said
    "Baby don't ride that crazy horse"
    And my mama said
    You must push with much force
    And my mama said
    Go get all that you're after
    And my mama said
    That love's all that matters

    But I'm always on the run (always on the run)
    But I'm always on the run (always on the run)
    But I'm always on the run (always on the run)
    But I'm always on the run (always on the run) Writer/s: LENNY ALBERT KRAVITZ, SAUL HUDSON, LENNY KRAVITZ

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn April 17th 1993, Lenny Kravitz performed "Always On The Run" on the NBC-TV program 'Saturday Night Live'...
    One year earlier it reached #8 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart...
    The video of the song was directed by singer Bob Dylan's eldest son, Jesse.
  • Michael from Staten Island, NyWow, only one comment on this song and three facts? This song deservs way better. Any song with either Slash or Lenny Kravitz is destined for greatness. Put these two together, and wow. Aerosmith's manager stated that is he were to pick a replacement for Stephen Tyler (as he;s definetly out of the band), he would pick Lenny Kravitz.
  • Jim from Long Beach, CaGreat riff, You gotta love Slash on this.Lenny Kravitz should front Velvet Revolver, now that would be interesting..
