Hi there!  This is one of those songs that I want 
to know the story behind.  Is this about him?  How
old was he?  Honestly I don' t know a lot about Ed,
*ducks for cover*, lol ;) 


This sounds good with the capo on 2 (click the transpose 
arrow up 2 x's.)  Those barre chords aren't my friends... :( 



STANDARD TUNING w/
CAPO ON 4  


Intro-
Em  C G
Em  C G
Em  C G
Em  C G



Em
  I've known it for a long time
C                   G              
Daddy wakes up to a drink at night
Em
  Disappearing all night
C                        G                        
I don't wanna know where he's been lying
Em
  I know what I wanna do
        C            G           Em
I wanna runaway, runaway with you
                               C        G
Gonna grab clothes, six in the mornin', go




 Am  Em       G   D
"How long you leavin'?"
               Am              Em        G   D
"Well dad just don't expect me back this evening."
            Am            Em      G    D
Oh it could take a bit of time to heal this
            B7
It's been a long day
                     Em           C*
Thumb on side of the roadway, but



                    Em                C  G
I love him from the skin to my bones
                  Em               Am G
But I don't wanna live in his home
                   Em                  C G
There's nothing to say cause he knows
              Em                   C*   Em*
I'll just runaway and be on my own ohh, mmm




Em
  I've never seen my dad cry
C                    G            
Cold as stone in the kitchen light
Em
  I'll tell you it's about time
C                   G         
But I was raised to keep quiet
Em
  And this is what I'm gonna do
      C              G             Em
Gonna runaway, gonna make that move
                                  C        G
Gonna grab clothes, and when it's mornin', go




 Am  Em       G   D
"How long you leavin'?"
               Am              Em        G   D
"Well dad just don't expect me back this evening."
            Am            Em      G    D
Oh it could take a bit of time to heal this
            B7
It's been a long day
                     Em           C*
Thumb on side of the roadway, but



                    Em                C  G
I love him from the skin to my bones
                  Em         Am G
But I don't wanna miss home
                   Em                  C G
There's nothing to say cause he knows
              Em                   C*   Em*
I'll just runaway and be on my own ohh, mmm




Em                                      C
Back pack, and a flat cap turned to the back
                          G  Em
Cause I packed my clothes up
                                     C                  G      
My dad wasn't down with that plan to attack, intends to show love
Em
  I don't wanna live this way
      C                  G  
Gonna take my things and go
Em
  If things change in a matter of days
      C               G       Am
Could be persuaded to hold up



                 Em
And mama was the same
               G
None of us are saints
                 D         Am
I guess that God knows that
                  Em
I don't wanna runaway
                 G                 D        Am
And one of these days I might just show that
                 Em
Put my home in a suitcase
         G              D        
Tie both shoe laces and hope that
B7                      
 Things change but for now I'll leave town 
       Em             C*
With a backpack on my shoulder




                    Em                C  G
I love him from the skin to my bones
                  Em         Am G
But I don't wanna miss home
                   Em                  C G
There's nothing to say cause he knows
              Em                   C*   Em*
I'll just runaway and be on my own ohh, mmm




Have fun!
Christy
