Confederate Railroad — A Bible And A Bus Ticket Home lyrics

Momma's tears fell so easy
Daddy's handshake was strong
Then I climbed aboard that Greyhound
Eighteen and glad to be gone
Took a rented room on Broadway
And as I unpacked everything I owned
I found a note my mama left me
With a Bible and a bus ticket home
It said one will get you where you're going
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/confederate-railroad-a-bible-and-a-bus-ticket-home-lyrics.html ]
When you haven't got a prayer
And one will bring you back, son
If your dreams ain't waiting there
You're out on your own now
We won't be there to fall back on
But you know we're never farther than
A Bible and a bus ticket home

The years have come and gone and taken
The only things in life I ever counted on
But I'm going back tomorrow
To lay flowers at their stone
I can almost hear my mama calling saying
Son come back where you belong
You've got all you need to get here
A Bible and a bus ticket home
It said one will get you,
Boy, you know we're never farther than
A Bible and a bus ticket home
