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

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"

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"

Well, I didn't know what to do
So I jammed her down in gear
Kinda 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"

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"

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 a hard place to find" he said
"But I'll give you a little clue
It ain't somewhere up in the air
Its 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, he gonna use your car"

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"
