Hank Williams — I Can't Escape From You lyrics

Recorded by hank williams, sr.
Words and music by hank williams, sr.

Ive [c] tried and tried to run and hide
To find a [c7] life that's [g7] new
But [c] where I go, I [f] always [c] know
I can't es-[g7] cape from [c] you.

A jug of wine to numb my mind
But what good does it do
The jug runs dry and still I cry
I can't escape from you.

These wasted tears are souvenirs
Of a love I thought was true
Your memory is chained to me
I can't escape from you.

There is no end, I can't pretend
That dreams will soon come true
A slave too long to a heart of stone
I can't escape from you.
