Runnin' Wild
Brenton Wood Lyrics


Not long ago, I got to wondering' 'bout all the trouble I've been getting' in since I was a child,
And I finally figured it out,
I brought it all on myself.

(sung)
Drinkin' hard liquor at the age of 10,
Chasin' wild women since I don't know when,
Rollin' them dice at the age of 11,
I didn't care much about join' to heaven,
I ran right straight to where the action was child,
Just running' wild.

I ran away from home when I reached 14,
I had to go and see what I had not seen,
I didn't know the reason I was here on earth,
And I didn't even know what my life was worth.
But I thought, I thought I knew what was happening' child,
Just running' wild.

I learned a thing or two as the years went by,
I learned not to rob, cheat, steal or lie,
If I'da known then everything I know now,
I wouldn't done what I did, no how,
There was only one thing that was wrong with me child,
That's running' wild.

Listen children now, and listen real good,
You better do everything good you should,
You can't get away with nothin', no how,
If you're heading' for trouble, you better stop right now,
Runnin' wild, baby, running' wild, nah, just runnin' wild.
