"Come Home Johnny Bridie" as written by and Barry Alan Gibb....
I'm full of pride and my heart feels good
Got news from my family up in the woods
At last I can go back where I belong
Sweated it all out for nine long years

Couldn't believe the voice in my ears
When the man saying "no hiding ,son"
So I left the only folks I had known
I was fifteen then, hardly grown

When they found me in the swamp face down in the mud
Couldn't get back and I couldn't go far
Said to myself stay right where you are
Done found yourself a ma and pa

[Chorus:]
Everybody said the kid's no good
Come home johnny bride come home
Johnny bride come home
We're all wrong without you
How did we ever doubt you
He confessed to the killing
It's his role we had you filling
We didn't really mean to make you sad
But when you ran you made us think that you were twice as bad

I left the only folks I had known
I was fifteen then , hardly grown
When they found me in the swamp face down in the mud

Couldn't get back and I couldn't go far
Said to myself stay right where you are
Done found yourself a ma and pa

[Chorus]

But when you ran you made us think that you were twice as bad [Repeats]
