Run Run Run

about

This is a traditional folk song redone in a more rock style. I discovered this song while flipping through an old folk songbook. I think this old spiritual has a lot to say for our modern times.

lyrics

Lyrics:

Now, Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
Parted that water with a two-by-four
Water parted and the people went through
But the water won't part for me and you

Well Joshua was said to be a mighty foe
'Cause he marched right up to old jericho
he blew his horn and the walls fell down
Better not build a wall around your own home town

Chorus:
you better run, run, run
You better run, run, run
Run to the city of refuge
You better run, run, run

Well, a long time before they had a cotton jin
They thought they better bring a lot of workin' people in
Carried them over in a slavery boat
Well, if you bring people here you better let them vote.

(chorus)

Now, you and me we got a lot to learn
About the trouble that makes this old world turn
We see our neighbor and we judge him hard
But you better look around in your own back yard.
