Running Scared
recorded by Roy Orbison 
written by Joe Melson and Roy Orbison

C                                 Dm
Just running scared each place we go
    G7                  C        
So afraid that he might show
Yeah running scared what would I do
           G7              C
If he came back and wanted you
Just running scared feeling low
        Em                  G7
Running scared you love him so
             C                Dm
Yeah running scared afraid to lose
           Em                       C
If he came back which one would you choose
Then all at once he was standing there
So sure of himself his head in the air
And my heart was breaking which one would it be
                             G7        C
You turned around and walked away with me

I simplified this great song as best I could, but for most amateurs like me, it's too difficult to play exactly like it's written. If you want to learn it, print Running Scared lyrics and chords and enjoy the song.
