I learnt this song at a Girl Scout Camp (Bonnie Brea in Massachusetts) in the sixties and it's one my kids have loved. But does anyone know where it came from??? Imagine 200 girls and two part harmony on the chorus...

Tinker



RUNBOY
(C/F/G7/C)

Chorus:

Run boy. Run boy. Run boy, run.
They're gonna get you boy, run boy, run.
They're gonna get you boy, run boy, run.
Run boy. Run boy. Run boy run.


You were born by a railroad track
Never seen your mom and your pa ain't comin' back
Had to make your way the best you can
But you didn't have to steal from another man.

Think you're a man cause you're twenty one
Shot a man for nothing and away you run
You're wanted in most every state from here to Tennessee
And if you're caught you'll do your running hanging from a tree

Storm clouds hanging down from the sky
Judge and a jury waitin' near by
Verse on a tombstone that won't be read by you
Says your runnin's done at twenty one, you won't see twenty two.


Learnt at GS Camp Bonnie Brea 1968
