(Intro:) I I I On the lam from the law I On the steps of the capital I I You shot a plainclothes cop on the ten o'clock II And I saw momentarily II I They flashed a photograph, it couldn't be you II You'd been abused so horribly II I I But you were there in some anonymous room I And I recall that fall I I was working for the government I I And in a bathroom stall off the national mall II How we kissed so sweetly II I How could I refuse a favor or two II And for a tryst in the greenery II I I I gave you documents and microfilm too G And from my ten floor tenement Am Where once our bodies lay C How I longed to hear you say Cm G "No they'll never catch me now Cm No they'll never catch me Am F No they cannot catch me now E F We will escape somehow Fm Somehow, oh" I I I It was late one night I I was awoken by the telephone I I I heard a strangled cry on the end of the line II Purloined in Petrograd II I They were suspicious of where your loyalties lay II So I paid off a bureaucrat II I I To convince your captors there to secret you away G And at the gate of the embassy Am Our hands met through the bars C As your whisper stilled my heart Cm G "No they'll never catch me now Cm No they'll never catch me Am F No they cannot catch me now E F We will escape somehow Fm Somehow, oh" (Interlude:) C B C B G G And I dreamt one night F# You were there in form G Hands held high F# In uniform G Oh F# Oh I I I It was ten years on I When you resurfaced in a motorcar I C And with the wave of an arm you were there and gone
