lyrics

Run away my soul, this city got a little too cold
To the hills of Ohio, where you learned to grow old
Has Susan got her black eyes, Joe Pyeweed touched the sky?
You don’t know

Tomorrow you step a little bit further
From that little girl you once knew
The oak woods remember the path where she ventured,
But where did she go?

I can hear her calling out, are we there yet?
Can she hear my soft reply, what’s the hurry?

I can see her dreaming eyes looking forward
Can she see my staring back, longing for her?

Coming home, I said, returning to my childhood bed
But the place was shrinking on me, my soul it never felt free
The post oak had fallen, the girl kept on calling
Lost to the trees

Stay a babe, my darling
Tomorrow will come soon
Stay a babe, my honey
Tomorrow will come too soon

Stay a babe, my darling (run away my soul, this city got a little too cold)
Tomorrow will come soon (to the hills of Ohio, where you learned to grow old)
Stay a babe, my honey (tomorrow you step, a little bit further)
Tomorrow will come too soon

Stay a babe, my darling (I can hear her calling out, are we there yet?)
Tomorrow will come soon (Can she hear my soft reply?)
Stay a babe, my honey
Tomorrow will come too soon

Run away my soul
