Never Get Away From Me (For Waylon and Jessi)
by Travis Tritt



I was a real Casanova in my home town
Never really thought about settling down
That is until, you came around
Yeah, it's been a few years but I remember it well
I was a rowdy no-gooder
You were hotter than hell
I spent all my time
Hot on your trail

You could've run through the mountains
Could've sailed across the deep blue sea
I knew from the start
Couldn't let you get away from me

Well your mama and your daddy
They didn't approve
They told you me was trash and I was born to lose
But that didn't faze me
I was gonna have you
So I begged and I pleaded
Something I'd never done
And sure as tomorrow has a rising sun
There was no mistake
Honey, you were the one

You could've run through the mountains
Could've sailed across the deep blue sea
But one thing's for sure
You would never get away from me

The sweetest things in life take you by surprise
Like the heaven I see looking in your eyes
Though you weren't sure how an outlaw's love would be
I made up my mind not to let you get away from me (End of Bridge)

As we get a little closer to our rocking chairs
I think back on the good times that we have shared
And how our love has grown
Down through the years
So snuggle up to me baby turn out the lights
There's no where on this earth I'd rather be tonight
Then lying in your arms
Holding you tight
As time roll's by one thing's still plain to see
I'd have been a fool to let you get away from me

Yeah, yeah you could've run through the mountains
Could've sailed across the deep blue sea
But I'd have been a fool to let you get away from me.
