Nazareth Whippin' Boy Lyrics

Last updated:

Trains, running through the town
Missed my turn around
Trains, got to break away
Got to leave today

There’s nothin’ gonna stop me
From runnin’ the tracks
You never saw me comin’
And I ain’t comin’ back
I’ve always been your whippin’ boy
I think it’s time for a change

Strange, it’s always been the same
It’s never you to blame
Chains, drag me to the ground
But no one turns around

There’s nothin’ gonna stop me
From runnin’ the tracks
You never saw me comin’
And I ain’t comin’ back
I’ve always been your whippin’ boy
I think it’s time for a change

Names, numbers on your wall
But I’m not gonna fall
Games, I’m tired of playin’ clown
Another side show is leavin’ town

There’s nothin’ gonna stop me
From runnin’ the tracks
You never saw me comin’
And I ain’t comin’ back
I’ve always been your whippin’ boy

There’s nothin’ gonna stop me
From runnin’ the tracks
You never saw me comin’
And I ain’t comin’ back
I’ve always been your whippin’ boy
I think it’s time for a change.
