A Ride Back Home (Album Version)

A Ride Back Home (Album Version)

John Mellencamp

Hey Jesus, can You give me a ride back home?
I've been out here in this world too long on my own
I won't bother You no more if You can just get me in the door
Hey Jesus, can You give me a ride back home?

When I started out I was so young and so strong
I just let it roll off my back when things went wrong
Now it's starting to get to me, all of this inhumanity
Hey Jesus, can You give me a ride back home?

You wouldn't know it by looking at me now
But I was showing some promise once upon a time
But it's gone now and it ain't coming back
My time's come and gone, it's as simple as that

Hey Jesus, this world is too troublesome for me
I try to fight off all these devils but I'm just too weak
When I'm out here walking alone I feel like taking my life but I won't
Too big a coward, can You give me a ride back home?
Hey Jesus, can You give me a ride back home?
Hey Jesus, can You give me a ride back home?
