Del Shannon vs. The Traveling Wilburys


 


Runaway
Del Shannon
As I walk along
I wonder
A-what went wrong
With our love
A love that was so strong
And as I still walk on
I think of
The things we've done together
A-while our hearts were young


I'm a-walkin' in the rain
Tears are fallin'
And I feel the pain
Wishin' you were here by me
To end this misery
And I wonder
I wa-wa-wa-wa
Wonder
Why
A-why-why-why-why-why-why
She ran away
And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run-run-run-run
Runaway

I'm a-walkin' in the rain
Tears are fallin'
And I feel the pain
Wishin' you were here by me
To end this misery
And I wonder
I wa-wa-wa-wa
Wonder
Why
A-why-why-why-why-why-why
She ran away
And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run-run-run-run
Runaway
A-run-run-run-run
Runaway



Runaway
The Traveling Wilburys
As I walk along
I wonder
What went wrong
With our love
A love that was so strong
And as I still walk on
I think of
The things we've done together
While our hearts were young


I'm a-walkin' in the rain
Tears are fallin'
And I feel the pain
Wishin' you were here by me
To end this misery
And I wonder
I wa-wa-wa-wa
Wonder
Why
Why-why-why-why-why-why
She ran away
And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run-run-run-run
Runaway

I'm a-walkin' in the rain
Tears are fallin'
And I feel the pain
Wishin' you were here by me
To end this misery
And I wonder
I wa-wa-wa-wa
Wonder
Why
Why-why-why-why-why-why
She ran away
And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run-run-run-run
Runaway

I'm a-walkin' in the rain
Tears are fallin'
And I feel the pain
Wishin' you were here by me
To end this misery
And I wonder
I wa-wa-wa-wa
Wonder
Why
Why-why-why-why-why-why
She ran away
And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A-run-run-run-run
Runaway
A-run-run-run-run
Runaway
A-run-run-run-run
Runaway
A-run-run-run-run
Runaway

  1. Both were good I say. Well done to you, although the modern videos are junk. The old one reminded me of me, surrounded by young women....

  4. Del Shannon is from my era - so I like his version better tho the TW, did a very good cover.

  6. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Adullamite!!! I am having a hard time envisioning you in a similar situation. For those lovely young lasses looked like they were having a really good time...

  9. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Grace!!! Yes, The Traveling Wilburys really did do a good job with it, but I have to agree with you that Del's version is better. (There's a bad moon risin' somewhere--right? I mean, with us being in agreement...)
