Run Down, Eli-Jimmie Strothers
Banjo, C position

REFRAIN: Run down, Eli, run down, set down the road
Don't want, stay here no longer

REFRAIN: Won't you run down, Eli, run down, set down the road
Don't want, stay here no longer

If religion was a-one thing money could buy
The rich would live and the poor would die
I don't want, stay here no longer

Well I s'pose, thank God, it is not so
All got a right to the Heaven's door
Don't want, stay here no longer

REFRAIN: Oh, won't you run down, Eli, run down, set down the road
I don't want, stay here no longer

Look away in the East, away in the West
My Lord burnin' up the wilderness
I don't want, stay here no longer

REFRAIN: Oh, won't you run down, Eli, run down, set down the road
Don't want, stay here no longer

Lord, I'm sometimes up, sometimes down
Sometimes level with the ground
I don't want, stay here no longer

REFRAIN: Won't you run down, Eli, run down, set down the road
Don't want, stay here no longer

This is the way my Mother have gone
Left me here to follow on
I don't want, stay here no longer

REFRAIN: Oh, won't you run down, now Eli, run down, set down the road
I don't want, stay here no longer
