Intro -x4-: Abm  E B

Abm
  I've known it for a long time
E                   B              
Daddy wakes up to a drink at night
Abm
  Disappearing all night
E                        B                        
I don't wanna know where he's been lying
Abm
  I know what I wanna do
        E            B           Abm
I wanna runaway, runaway with you
                               E        B
Gonna grab clothes, six in the mornin', go


 Dbm  Abm       B   Gb
"How long you leavin'?"
               Dbm              Abm        B   Gb
"Well dad just don't expect me back this evening."
            Dbm            Abm      B    Gb
Oh it could take a bit of time to heal this
            Ebm
It's been a long day
                     Abm           E 
Thumb on side of the roadway, but


                    Abm                E  B
I love him from the skin to my bones
                  Abm               Dbm B
But I don't wanna live in his home
                   Abm                  E B
There's nothing to say cause he knows
              Abm                   E    Abm 
I'll just runaway and be on my own ohh, mmm


Abm
  I've never seen my dad cry
E                    B            
Cold as stone in the kitchen light
Abm
  I'll tell you it's about time
E                   B         
But I was raised to keep quiet
Abm
  And this is what I'm gonna do
      E              B             Abm
Gonna runaway, gonna make that move
                                  E        B
Gonna grab clothes, and when it's mornin', go


 Dbm  Abm       B   Gb
"How long you leavin'?"
               Dbm              Abm        B   Gb
"Well dad just don't expect me back this evening."
            Dbm            Abm      B    Gb
Oh it could take a bit of time to heal this
            Ebm
It's been a long day
                     Abm           E 
Thumb on side of the roadway, but


                    Abm                E  B
I love him from the skin to my bones
                  Abm         Dbm B
But I don't wanna miss home
                   Abm                  E B
There's nothing to say cause he knows
              Abm                   E    Abm 
I'll just runaway and be on my own ohh, mmm


Abm                                      E
Back pack, and a flat cap turned to the back
                          B  Abm
Cause I packed my clothes up
                                     E                  B      
My dad wasn't down with that plan to attack, intends to show love
Abm
  I don't wanna live this way
      E                  B  
Gonna take my things and go
Abm
  If things change in a matter of days
      E               B       Dbm
Could be persuaded to hold up


                 Abm
And mama was the same
               B
None of us are saints
                 Gb         Dbm
I guess that God knows that
                  Abm
I don't wanna runaway
                 B                 Gb        Dbm
And one of these days I might just show that
                 Abm
Put my home in a suitcase
         B              Gb        
Tie both shoe laces and hope that
Ebm                       
 Things change but for now I'll leave town 
       Abm             Dbm 
With a backpack on my shoulder


                    Abm                E  B
I love him from the skin to my bones
                  Abm         Dbm B
But I don't wanna miss home
                   Abm                  E B
There's nothing to say cause he knows
              Abm                   E    Abm 
I'll just runaway and be on my own ohh, mmm

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
