Chords: 
| Am | G | Dm | C |


    Am            
You leave in the morning
     G
With everything you own
Dm                C
In a little black case

 Am  
Alone on a platform
    G           
The wind and the rain
     Dm      C
On a sad and lonely face

[Riff]

Am                G
Mother will never understand
        Dm          C
Why you had to leave
        Am                    G                 Dm   C
For the answers you seek will never be found at home
    Am                      G                  Dm  C
The love that you need will never be found at home


[Chorus]

    Am                   G                    Dm   C
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
    Am                   G                    Dm   C
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away


Am                G                       Dm         C
Pushed around and kicked around, always a lonely boy
Am                           G                 Dm  
You were the one that they'd talk about around town
                 C
As they put you down

       Am                 G                   Dm          C
And as hard as they would try, they'd hurt to make you cry
          Am           G                  Dm  C
But you'd never cry to them, just to your soul
          Am           G                  Dm  C
No, you'd never cry to them, just to your soul


    Am                   G                    Dm   C
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
    Am                   G                    Dm   C
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
    Am                   G                    Dm   C
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
    Am                   G                    Dm   C 
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

[Riff]

    Am                        G
You leave in the morning with everything you own
Dm                 C 
In a little black case
 Am                      G
Alone on a platform, the wind and the rain
     Dm      C
On a sad and lonely face

[Riff]

    Am                   G                    Dm   C
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
    Am                   G                    Dm   C
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
    Am                   G                    Dm   C
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
