At a [D]quick shop somewhere west of Albuquerque
Got a tank of gas, a cold drink, and a [A7]beef jerky
The [D]cashier she gave [D/F#]me a s[G]mile
So I [D]stood there and I [A7]talked to her a[D]while
She [G]said "where you headed, I [D]hope you get there soon
I've seen 'em all day long, from 4 a.m. to [A7]noon
[D]Some are runnin' from, some are [D/F#]runnin' [G]to
Some are runnin' [D]blind, Lord, [A7]which one are [D]you"
Well I [D]said "it don't appear to me to [G]be so cut and [D]dried
You don't know me from Adam, can it [A7]be so black and white"
I s[D]aid "I got a plan you see I [G]got it figured [D]out
How can you be so sure my dear of [A7]what I'm all [D]about"
She said "[G]I've stood in this window for [D]twenty-seven years
I can tell you cash or credit, I can [A7]tell your brand of beer
I can [D]tell you who's liar, and the truth is [D/F#]plain to [G]see
That's your last [D]twenty boy, and [A7]don't you lie to [D]me"
"There's a [G]girl in Albuquerque [D]cryin' ain't there
And you're [G]standin' in a quick shop [A7]lyin', ain't ya...well?"
She [D]handed back my twenty, said "you know what to [G]do
[D]If you drive it steady son you'll be home this a[A7]fternoon
[D]And I hate to judge you, I don't mean to [D/F#]seem un[G]kind
But there ain't no use in [D]runnin' if you're [A7]only runnin' [D]blind"
Nah there [G]ain't no use in [D]runnin' if you're [A7]only runnin' b[D]lind
