runaway lyrics – donovan

“runaway”

i am a runaway
many of my kind run away
running away from their way
all on a rainy day
hitching along the king’s highway
running away from their way

sailing into candor
with a pile of gold
and the hermit’s guiding me
very, very wise and old
i will see my true love there
she’ll be pleased to see me

the city soon’ll see my sail
they’ll know that i am home
the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home

here i am on my way
hitching along the queen’s highway
running away from their way
all on a winter’s day
hitching along the king’s highway
running away from their way

sailing into candor
with a pile of gold
and the hermit’s guiding me
very, very wise and old
i will see my true love there
she’ll be pleased to see me

the city soon’ll see my sail
they’ll know that i am home
the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home

sailing into candor
with a pile of gold
and the hermit’s guiding me
and he’s very, very wise and old
i will see my true love there
she’ll be pleased to see me

the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home
the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home
the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home
the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know i’m home

the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home
the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home
the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home
the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home
the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home

the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home
the city soon’ll see my sail
and they’ll know that i am home
