  • Lejos and Mary
    Lay dazed in Liula
    Dreaming of tropical signs
    As Lejos lay sleeping
    She knelt over him weeping
    Feeling the weight of his crimes
    It seems he cut a man down in a Tennessee town
    And he's just licking his wounds for a spell
    But it won't take long for the boys to catch on
    And soon he'll be running like hell
    Run Lejos run
    This ain't no time for that ball and chain
    Run Lejos run
    Climb on that pony and ride like you never done
    Ride like you never done
    Well their love it was long
    It was gentle and strong
    And for a while she forgot his sins
    And she kissed him for love
    She kissed him for luck
    She kissed him one time for a kid
    Well they came in without a warning in the hours before morning
    They come-a blasting through the windows and walls
    And when the smoke it did clear
    somebody cried out he ain't here
    Killed ourselves a woman that's all
    Run Lejos run
    This ain't no time for that ball and chain
    Run Lejos run
    Climb on that pony and ride like you never done
    Ride like you never done Writer/s: Ray LaMontagne
