Well, everybody knows the reason for the fall,
When woman tempted man down in paradise's hall;
Well, a woman tempted me, she took me for a ride,
But like the lonely fox I need a place to hide.

She walks through the corn leading down to the river,
Her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun;
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her,
And left me to die like a fox on the run.

Like a fox (like a fox, like a fox, like a fox) on the run.

She walks through the corn leading down to the river,
Her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun;
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her,
And left me to die like a fox on the run.

Like a fox (like a fox, like a fox, like a fox) on the run.

Let's drink a glass of wine to fortify our souls,
Let's talk about the weather and the friends we used to know;
Well, a couple of months ago, we'd taken on the floor,
Now the game is nearly over, the hounds are at my door.

She walks through the corn leading down to the river,
Her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun;
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her,
And left me to die like a fox on the run.

Like a fox (like a fox, like a fox, like a fox) on the run.
