Manfred Mann - Fox on the Run (1968)

Coming out of London, England and being named after their South African keyboardist, this band could be found on the charts throughout the 1960s. One of their biggest hits was a Bob Dylan original, Mighty Quinn (Quinn the Eskimo).

This song was written by the very talented Tony Hazzard, who wrote hit songs for The Hollies, The Yardbirds, Herman’s Hermits, and others.

Lyrics:

She walked 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 the fox on the run
Like the fox- like the fox- like the fox on the run

Everybody knows the reason for the fall
When woman tempted man down in paradise's hall
This woman tempted me, oh yes, and took me for a ride
But like the weary fox, I need a place to hide

She walked 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 the fox on the run
Like the fox- like the fox- like the fox on the run

Come take a glass of wine and fortify your soul
We'll talk about the world and friends we used to know
I'll illustrate a girl who put me on the floor
The game is nearly up; the hounds are at my door

I saw her walk 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 the fox on the run

You know she walked 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 here to die
Like the fox- like the fox- like the fox on the run
