CHRIS HILLMAN lyrics - Take It On The Run

CHRIS HILLMAN
"Take It On The Run"

Are you making plans on your own
Beautiful people heart's made of stone
Further on I know it's been done
All they do is take it on the run

I hear them crying late in the night
Misery callin' and something's not right
Politicians tell you of the work to be done
All they do is take it on the run

Take it on the run
Now somebody's spendin' my hard earned cash
Take it on the run
Somebody's driving my brand new Cadillac
Take it on the run
Oh somebody's swimming in my swimming pool
Don't you know they played me for the fool

I worked like a dog for the last fifteen years
Don't you feel sorry, just wipe away those tears
Sooner or later gonna get you in the end
Old age just takes it off again

Well my so-called friends are gonna let me down
Tell me stories, turn my head around
Make me believe I'm the only one
All they do is take it on the run

Take it on the run
Now somebody's spendin' my hard earned cash
Take it on the run
Oh, Somebody's driving my brand new Cadillac
Take it on the run
Yeah, somebody's swimming in my swimming pool
Don't you know they played me for the fool
