Bertha Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I had a hard run, runnin' from your window
I was all night running, running, Lord, I wonder if you care
I had a run in, run around and run down
Run around the corner, Lord, run smack in to a tree
Verse 2
I had to move, really had to move
That's why if you please, I am on my bendin' knees
Bertha, don't you come around here anymore
Verse 3
Dressed myself in green, I went down unto the sea
Try to see what's goin' down, try to read between the lines
I had a feelin' I was fallin', fallin', fallin', I turned around to see
Heard a voice callin', you were running back to me
Verse 4
I had to move, really had to move
That's why if you please, I am on my bendin' knees
Bertha, don't you come around here anymore
Verse 5
Ran into a rainstorm, I ducked back into a bar door
It's all night pourin', but not a drop on me
Test me, test me, test me, test me
Why don't you arrest me? Throw me in to the jail house
Lord, until the sun goes down, 'til it goes down
Verse 6
I had to move, really had to move
That's why if you please, I am on my bendin' knees
Bertha, don't you come around here anymore
Verse 7
I had to move, really had to move
That's why if you please, I am on my bendin' knees,
Bertha, don't you come around here anymore
Verse 8
I had to move, really had to move
That's why if you please, I am on my bendin' knees,
Bertha, don't you come around here anymore
Verse 9
I had to move, really had to move
That's why if you please, I am on my bendin' knees,
Bertha, don't you come around here anymore
anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore
