Narrow Escape  Ray Lamontagne

[G]  [D]  [Am]   [C]                              
[G]Lejos and Mary lay dazed in Liula
Dreaming of tropical [C]signs
As [D]Lejos lay sleeping

She knelt over him weeping
Feeling the [C]weight of his [G]crimes
[C]It seems he [G]cut a man down in a Tennessee [G7]town
And he's just licking his wounds for a [C]spell
But it [D]won't take long for the boys to catch on
And soon he'll be running like [D7]hell

[C]Run Lejos [G]run
[C]This ain't [F]no [C]time for that [G]ball and [D]chain
[C]Run [D]Lejos [Em]run
[D]Climb on that pony and [C]ride like you ain't never done

Well their [G]love it was long
It was gentle and strong, and for a while she forgot his s[C]ins
And she [D]kissed him for love
She kissed him for luck
She kissed him one [C]time for the [G]kid
[G]Well they came in without warning, in the hours before morning
[G7] They come-a blasting through the windows and [C]walls
And when the [D]smoke it did clear

Somebody cried out he ain't here
Killed ourselves a woman that's [D7]all

[C]Run Lejos [G]run
[C]This ain't [F]no [C]time for that [G]ball and [D]chain
[C]Run [D]Lejos [Em]run
[D]Climb on that pony and [C]ride like you ain't never done

Ride like you ain't never done
