"A Ride Back Home" as written by and John Mellencamp....
[Chorus]
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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentSee my comment on "Your Life Is Now". John's upbringing is starting to show. Youthful folly gives way to elder instruction. Come on home, John! We love you!
