Down in the holler there's a thriving town, a treasure trove that makes the world go 'round
When the city barons bring their legal papers and guns
Oh darlin' don't be afraid to run

When we came to settle here we came to stay, maybe raise a family, earn a decent wage
Now every public servant reeks of suspicion
So darlin' don't be afraid to run

Darlin' don't be afraid to run and don't turn your back on the noonday sun
Someday redemption will wash everyone but there's no telling when that day will come
So darlin' don't be afraid to run

Maybe we'll rendezvous out in nowheresville or maybe we'll find each other runnin' still
Until we reach that auspicious liaison
Oh darlin' don't be afraid to run

Darlin' don't be afraid to run and don't turn your back on the noonday sun
The people will greet you with derision. You'll never be their model citizen
So darlin' don't be afraid to run
