Run ‘Em Off
recorded by Merle Haggard
written by Oney Wheeler and Tracey Lee
 
G                                          D7
Now when the big bad wolf got in grandma's house
G                                       D7
Little Red Ridinghood was scared as the mouse
    G                        C
And just like her I'm scared through and through
     G                         D7        G
Some two legged wolf would run away with you
 
                         D7
So run 'em off no use to talk all day
             G                                D7
Just run 'em off they're trying to get you to play
        G                C
Run 'em off and make 'em let us be
       G                                D7          G
If you don't run 'em off I swear you're cheating on me
 
                                                   D7
Now there's an iceman and milkman and folks out of town
     G                                  D7
They don't come to visit they just hang around
     G                    C
They act just as friendly as can be
    G                         D7          G
But I don't think they care a thing about me
 
                     D7
So run 'em off don't talk too long
        G                D7
Run ‘em off so we can be alone
        G                       C
Run 'em off and make 'em let us be
   G                                    D7          G
If you don't run 'em off I swear you're cheating on me
 
                           D7
No matter where you are or what you do
G                                 D7
Folks start to whistle and how is you
     G                          C
When they get too close I wanna say shoo
      G                               D7      G
Cause it looks like they wanna take a bite of you
 
                     D7
So run 'em off don't talk too long
        G                               D7
Run ‘em off they’re trying to get you in Dutch
        G                       C
Run 'em off and make 'em let us be
   G                                    D7          G
If you don't run 'em off I swear you're cheating on me
 
                                            D7
Now once I ended this song but I write some more
      G                                            D7
Cause there's a half-a-dozen wolfs coming up to my door
    G                                  C
And I can tell by a looking cause it's plain to see
     G                        D7      G
That they're not here to make eyes at me
 
                     D7
So run 'em off don't talk too long
        G                D7
Run ‘em off so we can be alone
        G                       C
Run 'em off and make 'em let us be
   G                                    D7          G
If you don't run 'em off I swear you're cheating on me
