G    F       C         F  C

Made Nogales overnight
G            F      C             F  C

Thru the desert in the yellow light
G               F    C            F  C

Missing everything I left behind
Dm
Will they see me coming 
D             
Will they know I'm running

Got to Tucson in the dark
Keep an eye out for the law
A hundred miles or more from a broken heart
Can they see me coming
Will they no I'm running

Chorus
G                F      C         F  C

It's a long long way to Gila Bend
One silver dollar in my hand
Roads twists and turns is there no end
When I get there I can lay my head in Gila Bend


Saw a chuch along the way
A place to kneel to hide and pray
Help me make it maybe one more day
Or they'll see me coming 
Will they know I'm running

Chorus

View Just Lyrics...

Made Nogales over night
Through the desert in the yellow light
Missing everything I left behind
Will they see me coming?
Do they know I'm running?

Got to Tucson in the dark
Keeping an eye out for the law
Five hundred miles or more from a broken heart
Can they see me coming?
Do they know I'm running?

It's a long, long way to Gila Bend
One silver dollar in my hand
Road twists and turns is there no end
When I get there I can lay my head
In Gila Bend

Saw a church along the way
A place to hide, to kneel and pray
Help me make it maybe one more day
Can they see me coming?
Do they know I'm running?

It's a long, long way to Gila Bend
One silver dollar in my hand
Road twists and turns is there no end
When I get there I can lay my head
In Gila Bend
