VERSE 1
F                            Gm
   What have you gathered to report to your progenitors?
Am                      Gm
   Are your excuses any better than your senator's?
F                               Gm
   He held a conference and his wife was standing by his side
C
   He did her dirty but no one died
 
 
PRE CHORUS 1
Dm                           Am/E
   I saw Sonny Liston on the street last night
      F                        Gm         A#
Black-fisted and strong singing Redemption Song
                      C
He motioned me to the sky
        F
I heard heaven and thunder cry

A#               Dm
   Run for cover
              F                    Gm
Run while you can baby, don't look back
                  A#    Dm
You gotta run for cover
          F                           C
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man
Am     A#                  C   Dm
   You know you're not the only one
A#                           C
   And don't look back, just run for cover
 
 
VERSE 2
F                              Gm
   What are you waiting for, a kiss or an apology?
Am                                Gm
   You think by now you'd have an A in toxicology
F                                 Gm
   It’s hard to pack the car when all you do is shame us
C
   It’s even harder when the dirtbag’s famous
 
 
PRE CHORUS 2
Dm                        Am/E
   I saw my mother on the street last night
    F                         Gm           A#
All pretty and strong, singing “the road is long”
                             C
I said “Momma, I know you’ve tried”
 
But she fell on her knees and cried
 
 
CHORUS 2

   Run for cover
              F                    Gm

   I know you're not the only one
A#                           C
   And don't look back, just run for cover
 
 
BRIDGE
Am               A#                    Dm
   And there was nothing she wouldn't give
        A#                 Am                   A#
Just to trust him with her nightmares, with her dreams
          Dm             C
Now she's running, she's running
        A#
Just to trust him
 
Dm
   He got big smile, he's fake news
F
   Just run for cover, you've got nothing left to lose
 
 
CHORUS 3
N.C.          Dm
Run for cover
              F                    Gm
Run while you can baby, don't look back
                  A#    Dm
You gotta run for cover
          F                           C
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man 
Am     A#                  C   Dm
   You know you're not the only one
A#                           C
   And don't look back, just run for cover, run!
