Take what's yours and go
While you still can
While it's still dark outside
Before he's cold

Law man come into your broken home
Hide the hammer
Draw the blinds
Grab the little one and go

You've got 16 miles of wasteland
Left to go

Hike up your skirt now you better
Run girl run
Hike up your skirt now you better
Run girl run
Before they find out what you've done
Before they find out what you've done
You'd better run girl run


The truth smashed into your face
Like his big hard hand
Ripped up your hope
Ripped up your dress

This was your empire
O queen of all that's pure
Until he broke your crown
Burned your kingdom down

You've got 16 miles of wasteland
Left to go

Hike up your skirt now you better
Run girl run
Hike up your skirt now you better
Run girl run
Before they find out what you've done
Before they find out what you've done
You better run girl run
