  Holly told me, "You better give me a child",
        D         C          G
I said,   "Holly, there's no way,
D               C               G
  we don't even like each other all that much,
            D       C        G
we couldn't make it one more day".

  She said, "You better look out, buster,
         D               C            G
the next time you see me you're gonna pay".
D                 C                  G
  I said, "Holly, I'm not running anymore
D         C     G

I'm on my way,

I'm on my way,

I'm on my way
            D       C  G
but I'm not running anymore.

[Verse 3]
            D          C               G
Well, I got two circus clowns here who like to fight,
         D         C                G
they got one black eye and a bloody nose.
D              C           G
  They are the hoodlums of my third wife,
    D      C               G
whatever I say they will oppose.
 
[Verse 4]
D          C                  G
  I try to teach those clowns something,
            D       C      G
like how to make it day to day.
D                  C             G
  I say, "Hey, you kids, I'm not running anymore,
D         C     G
  but I'm on my way".
 
[Chorus]
       D      C  G
I'm on my way,
       D      C  G
I'm on my way,
          D   C   G
I'm on my way
            D       C  G*
and I'm not running anymore.

[Verse 5]
        D           C                 G
Well, I look in the mirror - what the hell happened to me,
         D     C           G
whatever I had   has gone away?
D             C                G
  I'm not the young kid that I used to be,
      D        C         G
so, I push the hair back out of my face.
 
[Verse 6]
D          C                     G
  That's O.K., I knew this would happen
          D      C     G
but I was hopin' not today.
D            C               G
  Hey, Baby, I'm not running anymore
D         C     G
  but I'm on my way.
 
[Chorus]
          D     C     G
I'm on my   way,
          D     C     G
I'm on my   way,
          D     C     G
I'm on my way,
            D       C  G
and I'm not running anymore.

          D     C       G
I'm on my   way,
          D     C       G
I'm on my   way,
          D   C         G
I'm on my way
            D       C  G*        N.C.
and I'm not running anymore. For sure!
