Jackdaw

Al Stewart

I'm running away
On a day like today
Nothing you say
Could cause me to stay
Jackdaw (jackdaw)
Leaving by your back door
Should be gone by now
Should be gone by now
Should be gone by now

Don't try to follow
Just leave it alone
The trains have all left now
And the station is closed
Jackdaw (jackdaw)
Leaving by your back door
Should be gone by now
Should be gone by now
Should be gone by now

It's five in the morning
And it's rainy and cold
Just go back to sleep now
And you won't see me go
Jackdaw (jackdaw)
Leaving by your back door
Should be gone by now
Should be gone by now
Should be gone by now
