"Run Daddy Run" as written by and Miranda Lambert Angaleena Presley....
Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run

All the songs you used to sing to me
Would rock birds to sleep
I need you now so please somehow
Put rockets on your feet (oh oh oh oh)

Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run

Saw that dark cloud coming from a million miles away
Oh how I've dreaded this God forsaken day (oh oh oh oh)

Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run

Mama's been crying in the kitchen
Sister's been afraid of the dark
I've been gathering the pieces of all these shattered hearts
And I don't care where you go to
And I don't care where you land
Just get out of there daddy as fast as you can

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run

Run Daddy run, run daddy run
Run Daddy run, run daddy run
Run Daddy run, run daddy run

    Lyric CorrectionDaddy, can you hear the devil drawing near?
    Like a bullet from a gun, run Daddy run

    All the songs you used to sing to me would rock the birds to sleep
    I need you now, so please somehow put rockets on your feet

    Daddy, can you hear the devil drawing near?
    Like a bullet from a gun, run Daddy run

    Saw that dark cloud comin' from a million miles away
    Oh, how I've dreaded this god forsaken place

    Daddy, can you hear the devil drawing near?
    Like a bullet from a gun, run Daddy run

    Mama's been cryin' in the kitchen
    Sister's been afraid of the dark
    I've been gatherin' the pieces of all these shattered hearts
    I don't care where you go to
    I don't care where you land
    Just get out of here, Daddy, as fast as you can

    Daddy, can you hear the devil drawing near?
    Like a bullet from a gun, run Daddy run
    Run, Daddy, run
    Run, Daddy, run
    Run, Daddy, run
    Run, Daddy, run

    Song Meaning"Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
    Like a bullet from a gun
    Run daddy run"

    This is a song from Katniss to her father. He passed away in a mine explosion, and she says she still wakes up screaming for him to run. This is her thoughts and feelings put into a song!
