Run Refugees, Run

2017 Garrett Clevenger

 

Em Bm Em Bm A knock on my door. Who could it be?

Em Bm I get up and look through the peephole.

Em Bm Em Bm Oh Mercy me! What's this I see?

Em Bm Em Some refugees fleeing war.

 

Em Bm Em Bm What should I do? Do I open the door?

Em Bm Let them invade my home?

Em Bm Em Bm They look so dirty. There's way too many.

Em Bm Em Then I imagine their horror.

 

Chorus:

D Em Run refugees, run.

C G D From the bombs and the barrel of a gun.

Em C G D Em Bm Em You just run, run refugees, run.

 

Em Bm Em Bm I do what is right. I turn on the light.

Em Bm I let them see I'm friendly.

Em Bm Em Bm I woman grabs my hand. Implores me to lend.

Em Bm Em I can't help but feel sorry.

 

Em Bm Em Bm She lost her baby three days ago

Em Bm But she still carries him.

Em Bm Em Bm She just wants a place so he could have a grave.

Em Bm Em I've never felt so grim.

 

{chorus}

 

Jam through verse

 

Em Bm Em Bm In a matter of time the whole human race

Em Bm is forced to be on the run.

Em Bm Em Bm There is no place to go. We gotta leave our home,

Em Bm Em the planet we made sure was done.

 

Em Bm Em Bm My family and I, on a spaceship we fly,

Em Bm hoping a new planet we'll find.

Em Bm Em Bm When we reach that goal we find it's colonized

Em Bm Em by creatures who've fled their own bad times.

 

{chorus}

 

Jam through end of chorus:

 

Em C G D We run.

Repeat

 

Em Bm Em

Em Bm
