Ain’t Nobody Free

He kept after ya didn’t he…chased ya all over this country…made ya run…what’s it like to be followed…never bein’ able to settle down anywhere…just keep on runnin’…never found you though did he…took off everywhere…New York…Chicago…Nashville…where ya goin’ next…I wonder about ya…maybe ya should head out West…get lost in Denver or Alberqurquee…maybe go out to Portland…heard they got a bunch of weirdos out there…ya could fall right into place…my question is…why’d ya leave him…had a good job…bringin’ home money…wanted a family…and ya just took off…strippin’ and whorin’ the whole time…don’t ya feel ashamed…he’s gonna find ya one of these days…come close a couple of times already…St. Louis…Cleveland…he’ll getcha…just wait and see…and when he does there’ll be questions to answer…he’s gonna demand answers…I talked to him boutcha ‘fore he left…said he had this emptiness inside him…said he couldn’t let go of ya…like you were some kinda curse…some kinda dream he couldn’t wake up from…ya know what that’s like…to want somethin’ so bad you’ll give up your whole life just to find it…

Like freedom…

Is that what this is ’bout…freedom…

Yep…

Hell honey…ain’t nobody free…
