Who doesn't know George Strait's "Run"? The phenomenal song was released in 2001 as the lead single off of his The Road Less Traveled album. It was written by Anthony Smith and Tony Lane. "Run" peaked at the #2 spot on the US Hot Country Songs (Billboard) chart. It actually crossed over into the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, reaching the #34 slot.

This hit song tells the story of a man that wants his love to "run" to him, explaining several different ways of transportation that she could use to get there, whether it be bus, plane, or train. The haunting melody is beautifully woven into a romantically-charged love song.

Strait perfectly performed this tune during the 2001 CMA Awards, ushering in an impressive round of applause at the end. Check it out!

+++++++++++++++++++++ LYRICS BELOW +++++++++++++++++++++

If there's a plane
Or a bus leaving Dallas
I hope you're on it
If there's a train moving fast
Down the tracks
I hope you caught it

'Cause I swear out there
Ain't where you ought to be
So, catch a ride, catch a cab
Don't you know I miss you bad
But don't you walk to me

Baby run
Cut a path across the blue skies
Straight in a straight line
You can't get here fast enough

Find a truck and fire it up
Lean on the gas and off the clutch
Leave Dallas in the dust
I need you in a rush
So baby run

If you ain't got a suitcase get a box
Or an old brown paper sack
Pack it light or pack it heavy
Take a truck, take a Chevy
Baby just come back

There's a shortcut
To the highway out of town
Oh, why don't you take it?
Don't let that speed limit slow you down
Go on and break it

Baby run
Cut a path across the blue skies
Straight in a straight line
You can't get here fast enough

Find a truck and fire it up
Lean on the gas and off the clutch
Leave Dallas in the dust
I need you in a rush
So baby run

Baby run
Oh, baby run
