steal

sit down by the waterside
watch the river fall
you told me who you're running from
i don't think you know where you're going at all
what now could i sing for you
now that you are gone
what i couldn't give to you
you went out on your own
you kept telling me you're a gambler and a thief
what good are the games you play
you kept looking for what you'd steal from me
and you can't steal what i'm giving away

walk down on the railroad ties
never said a word
guess i can't expect you to understand
what you never heard
you asked me once to run with you
go out on the road
what i couldn't give to you
you went out on your own
and you kept telling me you're a gambler and a thief
what good are the games you play
you kept lookin for what you'd steal from me
and you can't steal what i'm giving away
