Alison Krauss – No Place To Hide Lyrics

(bob lucas/belly boy music, bmi)

When i was a child

I used to love to watch the rain

I’d stand under the downspout

Let the water cool my brain

I never thought to worry

If the river rose too high

That all the seeds we planted

Would get washed out with the tide

But now i am a man

And i need a place to hide

Chorus:

But there’s nowhere to run

And there’s no place to hide

Where the water runs free

And the mud starts to slide

When i was a young man

I could work through wind and rain

I never thought to worry

Had no reason to complain

I thought that i was standing

On a rock so firm and strong

But it was easy then to see

Just what was right

And what was wrong

But now i am a man

I won’t be hanging round too long

When i was a child

I used to love to watch the rain

I’d stand under the downspout

Let the water cool my brain

I never thought to worry

If the river rose too high

And all the dreams we planted

Would get washed out with the tide

Chorus

Where the water runs free

And the mud starts to slide
