"Gimme a Ride to Heaven Boy" as written by and Terry Allen....
Well I was caught up with myself
On the highway at night
Drivin' like a bat outta hell
When I beheld an amazing sight
It was a lonely apparition
By the roadside standing there
With his thumb out in the wilderness
And a halo in his hair

[Chorus]
He said "Gimme a ride to heaven boy
I'll Show you paradise
Yeah gimme a ride to heaven boy
My name is Jesus Christ"

So I come screeching to a halt
I said "Hop on in"
He says "thanks a lot for the lift
I forgive you of your sins
Yeah I just come from Jerusalem
Where things are going bad
Ah gimme a ride to heaven boy
I need to talk to my dad"

[Chorus]

Well I didn't know what to do
So I jammed her down in gear
Kind a kicked my feet beneath the seat
I was trying to hide the beer
Ah but he just grinned and said "My friend,
I know you must think it's odd
But you got nothin' to fear about drinkin' a beer
If you share it with the son of God"

[Chorus]

Well I saw good news in his baby blues
So I stomped it on the floor
I said you have to show me how to get there
I ain't been before
"Well it's a hard place to find" he said
"But I'll give you a little clue
It ain't somewhere up in the air
It's sittin' right here inside with you"
Then right in the middle of that perfect smile
From his robes he pulled a gun
An stuck it up beside my head and said
"How's this for Kingdom Come?"
Well I pulled off scared but I heard him say
As he left me beneath the stars
"The Lord moves in mysterious ways
And tonight, my son H'e's gonna use your car"

[Chorus]
