Richard Marx – Hazard lyrics

My mother came to Hazard when I was just seven
Even then the folks in town said with prejudiced eyes
That boy’s not right …
Three years ago when I came to know Mary
First time that someone looked beyond the rumours and the lies
And saw the man inside …
We used to walk down by the river
She loved to watch the sun go down
We used to walk along the river
And dream our way out of this town …
No one understood what I felt for Mary
No one cared until the night she went out walking alone
And never came home …
Man with a badge came knocking next morning
Here was I surrounded by a thousand fingers suddenly
Pointed right at me …
I swear I left her by the river
I swear I left her safe and sound
I need to make it to the river
And leave this old Nebraska town
I think about my life gone by
And how it’s done me wrong
There’s no escape for me this time
All of my rescues are gone, long gone
I swear I left her by the river
I swear I left her safe and sound
I need to make it to the river
And leave this old Nebraska town …
