Run David, Run David,

D

run run run!

Saul the King is mad

G C G

and he is no more fun.

You’ll get by

C

despite his jealous eye.

D

So run David, run David,

G C G

run, run, run. D / / / / / / / G (C G)

Saul as a king

used to be a dear!

But very soon he was

filled with fear!

Played the fool,

began to disobey.

So now as a King

he has had his day!

Once David pleased him,

with his victories won.

Loved him as much

as Jonathan his son.

Raised him high,

but as the time went by,

Saul turned against him,

and I’ll tell you why.

“David has killed many men

and Saul so very few!”

Saul heard the people shout,

and so his anger grew.

Sent him to die

in battles far away.

The more David won,

louder the hurrahs” repeat verse 1
