From the recording My Own Dixie
Album - My Own Dixie
by Maggie Vogts
Well it’s been years since I left home
to ride this lost highway with Clyde.
With charm and appeal, he led me away.
Now we’re on the run, with nowhere to hide.
I was just a young thing
when he took me by the hand.
He told me I was pretty,
so I joined his outlaw band.
We roamed around in search of
easy money means.
I learned to lie, use a gun,
Clyde taught me everything.
(chorus) And we ran from town to town.
It was fun at first, but now it drags me down.
As we run, my spirit tires.
This lost highway is lined with fire.
Love helped me run at first,
Clyde’s easy, honey smile.
But now I watch the road ahead,
and I count every mile.
My spirit’s wearing low
as we’re chased from town to town.
He plays like everything’s okay,
but our crimes will drag us down.
I’d like to climb from this hole
with walls so steep.
I’d like to leave this life I’m living,
but I’m in too deep.
Clyde says, “One more run,”
but I see through his lie.
This man is too far gone.
He won’t stop ‘til we die.
