The The – I Can’t Escape From You

Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr.

I’ve tried and tried to run and hide
To find a life that’s new
But where I go, I always know
I can’t escape from you.

A jug of wine to numb my mind
But what good does it do
The jug runs dry and still I cry
I can’t escape from you.

These wasted tears are souvenirs
Of a love I thought was true
Your memory is chained to me
I can’t escape from you.

There is no end, I can’t pretend
That dreams will soon come true
A slave too long to a heart of stone
I can’t escape from you.
