A Bible and a Bus Ticket Home  Confederate Railroad

written by Craig Wiseman and James Dean Hicks
Hope this is right. Sounds good to me.
Capo II
Mamma's t[A]ears fell so easy
Daddy's [A/F#]hands[D/F#]hake was s[D]trong[Dsus2] [D]
Then I climbed[D/A] aboard [D/F#]that G[E]reyhound[Esus4] [E]
Eighteen and glad to be [D]gone[Dsus2] [D]
Took a r[A]ented room on Broadway
As I unpacked e[A/F#]veryt[D/F#]hing I o[D]wned[Dsus2] [D]
I found a note [D/A]my m[D/F#]omma [E]left me
With a bible and a bus t[D]icket [A]home (it said)
One will get you where you're go[A]in
When you haven't got a [D]prayer[D/F#] [D]
And one will bring you [E]back son
If your dreams ain't waiting [D]there[Dsus2] [D]
You're out on your o[A]wn now
We won't be there to fall back o[D]n[D/F#] [D]
But you know we're never [E]farth[A]er
Than a bible and a b[D]us ticket home[A] [D] [Dsus2] [D]
The years have come and gone and taken
The only things I ever counted on
But I'm going back tomorrow
To lay flowers at their stone
I can almost hear my momma callin
Sayin son come back where you belong
You've got all you need to get here
A bible and a bus ticket home
