about

This song's about one heck of a woman.

lyrics

Well she drove all night through Tennessee
straight into the dawn
she spent her whole life rambling
it kept her hanging out

but she wore a look in her eyes
you could see all she'd been through
she'd be running her whole life
so what was she to do?

Chorus
Run, Run Elmira
it's catching up to you
Run, Run Elmira
yah you're through, yah you're through, yah you're through

Her dad he gambled with the law
and lost his hand too soon
so her Mama worked job to job
it kept her on the move

Oh she swore she'd never be that way
but look at what she's done
just when you thought she might stay
she's back out on the run

Chorus
Run, Run Elmira
it's catching up to you
Run, Run Elmira
yah you're through, yah you're through, yah you're through

She always loved that time of day
before the sun went down
when she was just another face
moving through a town

Chorus
Run, Run Elmira
it's catching up to you
Run, Run Elmira
yah you're through, yah you're through, yah you're through
