A ballad of Jacob Foster

Go back to the song list

Cover MOVE TO WEST 1000

He was a lorry driver, riding far way from home
Sleeping in the ditches, feeling freedom in a truck
He leaves a wife and children
When the company failed out
With promises of better times
he left the oldest town

And he’s running down,down, down
Running down,down, down,
He’s running down, and take it calm…

And now he lives in Boston, working as casual staff
Sometimes he sends some money, and a gift in christmas time
He is dreaming with the glorious day
When he could coming back
To sleep with Mary and children
And again to drive his truck

And he’s running down,down, down
Running down,down, down,
He’s running down, and take it calm…

And he’s running down,down, down
Running down,down, down,
He’s running down, and take it calm…

He’s running down, (so far)
Running down, (with hopes)
He’s running down, and take it calm…
He’s running down, (the streets)
Running down, (don’t fall)
He’s running down, and take it calm…

And if the world is burning
dreaming with his glorious days
If everything is going down
dreaming with a better days

He’s running down,down, down
He’s running down,down, down
He’s running down,down, down
He’s running down,down, down
He’s running down,down, down
He’s running down
