Come Home Johnny Bride

 I'm full of pride and my heart feels good
 Got news from my fam'ly 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
 Ev'rybody 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
 Ev'rybody 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
