Lyrics

Run Dooley Run

Written By: Jeannie Farlow

Chorus:
Run Dooley, run
There's a bounty on your head.
Run Dooley, run
They wish that you were dead.
Go Tommy, go,
Go to Tennessee...
And when you cross that border,
A free man you'll be.

Verse I:
You always loved the pretty girls,
Cute as you could be.
One look at you
And you were in their dreams.
But you loved Ann,
And a soldier goes away...
Then James married Ann,
And Laura had to pay.

Verse II:
Are you holding Ann Melton's lies?
Young Laura was to be
Your true loving wife.
But she was killed on your wedding day.... A victim of your love, Ann's

Chorus:
Run Dooley, run
There's a bounty on your head.
Run Dooley, run
They wish that you were dead.
Go Tommy, go,
Go to Tennessee...
And when you cross that border,
A free man you'll be.

Verse I:
You always loved the pretty girls,
Cute as you could be.
One look at you
And you were in their dreams.
But you loved Ann,
And a soldier goes away...
Then James married Ann,
And Laura had to pay.

Verse II:
Are you holding Ann Melton's lies?
Young Laura was to be
Your true loving wife.
But she was killed on your wedding day....
A victim of your love,
Ann's jealousy, and hate.

Verse III:
Play that fiddle Tom,
Play it long and well.
Once you were a hero,
Now you'll go to jail.
Her body was found
In a shallow grave.
Did Pearline and Ann
Kill her on that day?
