Prodigal Blues Submit Correct Lyrics

Ridin' my life, like a run-a-way train
Moving from one track to that
Howlin', cryin', screamin' at the moon
Only my voice came back
Only the echo came back

When I was a boy
Daddy told me, grow tall
Yes and Billy don't crawl
Taught me how to ride
Set me out on my own and I never came back

And yes, I'd do it again
Oh, wouldn't you
Yeah, I'd do it again
A-huh, oh yeah
Do it again, baby
Wouldn't you?

Remember when I lied
Just when you needed me
Now I sit alone and cry
'Cos now I believe in mercy

Remember when I lied
Just when you needed me, baby
I believe in mercy

Ridin', walkin', lookin' so cool
Guess I crossed over the borderline
Treated like a dunce
Who just can't read
Did I fool me too?

And yes, I'd do it again
Oh, wouldn't you?
Yes, I'd do it again
Aha yeah, I'd do it again
Baby, wouldn't you?

Remember when I lied
Just when you needed me
Now I sit alone and cry
'Cos now I believe in mercy

Remember when I lied
Now that you needed me
Yes, I believe in mercy

I said, "Come here"
Look into my face
And hear into my heart
Hesitation could re-arrange
The other side to your love

Take hold now baby
And take what
Other lovers have not
Times is changin' will they re-arrange
The other side to your love

No, woah, woah, woah, yeah
Woo

Come home
Here he is impatient one
Come home
Come home
Tell the story

Come home
Here he is
The impatient one
Come home
To claim a glory

Prodigal son
Come home
Prodigal bum
Come home
Prodigal son

Prodigal son
Come home
To claim a glory
Prodigal son
Come home

Prodigal bum
Here he comes
Yeah, that prodigal son
Ooh, he's the one
To tell his story

C'mon to tell his story
C'mon to tell his story
C'mon to claim his glory
Prodigal son
