Hank Williams I CAN'T ESCAPE FROM YOU Lyrics

Last updated:

Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr.
Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr.

I've [C] tried and tried to run and hide
To find a [C7] life that's [G7] new
But [C] where I go, I [F] always [C] know
I can't es-[G7] cape from [C] 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.
