[Verse 1]
A
Well, I sold my guitar for a diamond ring
         C                           D          A
Yeah the preacher's daughter's got a thing  for me
A
With all of our stuff in a pick up truck
           C                         D          A
Yeah we're headed out  west     in a cloud  of  dust

[Chorus]
G       D            A
Runaway baby  like a runaway train, like a
G            D       A
Train comin' off the tracks
G       D            A
Runaway baby  like a runaway train
    C       D          A
Runaway and never look back
    C       D          A
Runaway and never look back

[Verse 2]
A
Well, it's a Vegas weddin' at the break of day
         C                           D          A
    By a magistrate   dressed        in  blue   suede
A
Lost all of our cash on a roll of the bones
         C                           D          A
  Had to pawn that  ring  just  to   get  back  home

[Chorus]

[Instumental Break]
Play the chorus, but the C-D-A just one time.

[Verse 3]
A
In a cheap motel on the county line
         C                           D          A
Sneakin' back into town  in the      black  of  night
A
I heard the preacher screamin' through the motel door
         C                           D          A
Yeah he's cursin' my soul   in the  name of the Lord

[Ending Chorus]
G       D            A
Runaway baby  like a runaway train, like a
G            D       A
Train comin' off the tracks
G       D            A
Runaway baby  like a runaway train
    C       D          A
Runaway and never look back

Runaway baby  like a runaway train, like a

Train comin' off the tracks

Runaway baby  like a runaway train

Runaway and never look back
    C       D          A
Runaway and never look back

Runaway and never look back
