"Prodigal Son" as written by and Rev. Robert Wilkins....
When I left my father's house
I was well supplied
I made a mistake and I did run
I'm dissatisfied

I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home
Acknowledge I done wrong

I'll go back my father's house
I'll fall down on my face
Say that I'm unworthy
And see concern its place

I'll go back my father's house
the place I love so dear
there they have food to eat
And I'm a-starving here

I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home
Acknowledge I done wrong

Father saw him coming
He met him with a smile
Threw his arms around him
Said this is my wandering child

Father said to his servant
Go kill the fattest cow
Invite friends and relatives
My son's come home at last

I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home
Acknowledge I done wrong

I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home
Acknowledge I done wrong

I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home
Acknowledge I done wrong

    General Commenti really like this song. my opinion is that it's meaning, as the title says , is related to the bible's prodigal son story.i believ it's about how you sometimes acknowledge that you made a mistake and you try to make it up somehow by humiliating.

    Lyric CorrectionSay that I'm unworthy
    And see concern its place

    this is wrong it should be

    "say that i'm unworthy and seek a servant's place"
