GUEST,Amy Lyr Req: Run Samson Run (Lundstrom? Sedaka?) (17) Lyr Add: RUN, SAMSON, RUN (Lowell Lundstrom) 13 Apr 02


Run Samson Run

Delilah was a long haired pretty thing with flashing dark brown eyes
And Samson was the servant of the living God who never was to compromise
He met her in a hotel one day the love was sweet to him
But the Lord saw it all and it grieved his heart for Samson fell in sin

Run Samson run, Delilah's gonna get you
Run Samson run, she's gonna cut your hair
Run Samson run, you're gonna loser your power
And you're gonna go to prison and die down there

Delilah was paid by the Philistines to find what made him strong
Three times she tricked and tried to betray the man who wore his hair so long
She begged and pleaded until one day his soul could stand no more
Then he said if they cut my hair I'll be weak for it means I am the Lord's

Run Samson run, Delilah's gonna get you
Run Samson run, she's gonna cut your hair
Run Samson run, you're gonna loser your power
And you're gonna go to prison and die down there

They cut his hair while he was a sleepin' and he never heard a sound
When he awakened his knees started shakin' as they dragged him to the ground
The Philistines put out his eyes and bound him with their chains
He became a slave in the prison house and died down there in shame

Now listen boy if you been lookin at a girl with pretty eyes
Make sure she loves the Lord with all her heart and never compromise
For a worldly girl will take your life and use it for her gain
Don't trust her or you'll end up with the fools who are in chains

Run boy run, Delilah's gonna get you
Run boy run, she's gonna cut your hair
Run boy run, you're gonna loser your power
And you're gonna go to prison and die down there

I forgot to get the info off the album Dicho, but it basically talked about Lowell's conversion.
