D                                                                     G        - C - D

    heard it from another you been messin' around.

G                                                   

    They say you got a boy friend,

C

    you're up there every weekend,

D                                                                         G    

    they're talkin' about you and it's bringin' me down.

 

    G

2.       But I know the neighbourhood,

C

    and talk is cheap when the story is good,

D                                                               G    

    and the tales grow taller on down the line.

G

    But I'm telling you, babe,

C

    that I don't think it's true, babe,

D                                                 G       - G - D

    and even if it is, keep this in mind.

 

Em                                         

    You take it on the run, baby,

C

    if that's the way you want it, baby,

D                                        G       - G - D

    then I don't want you around.

Em                          - C

    I don't believe it,         not for a minute

Am                                                                    D  

    you're under the gun, so you take it on the run.

 

    G

3.     You're thinking up your white lies,

C

    you're putting on your bedroom eyes,

D                                                                                  G  

    you say you're coming home, but you won't say when.

 

 

 

 

 

G                                

    But I can feel it coming,

C

    if you leave tonight, keep running,

D                                                      G       - G - D

    and you need never look back again.

 

Em                                         

    You take it on the run, baby,

C

    if that's the way you want it, baby,

D                                       G         - G - D

    then I don't want you around.

Em                          - C

    I don't believe it,         not for a minute,

Am                                                                    D  

    you're under the gun, so you take it on the run.
