A Ride Back Home  John Mellencamp

JOHN (COUGAR) MELLENCAMP lyrics - A Ride Back Home
This is my first time tabbing a song from scratch and I have no music training
It's all from ear and watching the video. Em?7, either the Em or Em7 thats the
only chord that I could make fit I'm not sure if even belongs. There's nothing
technical about this, I just tab it so I could play it. I think it's better
than the other C F capo version so I'm going to share it.
G6add9 = 1st string third fret thats it
Em?7 = Em or Em7
[D]Hey Jesus can you give me a ride back home
I've been out here in this world too long on my o[A]wn
[G]I won't bother you no more
[D]If you can just get me in the door
A Em?7 D
Hey Jesus can you give me a ride back home
[D]When I started out I was so young and so strong
I just let it roll off my back when things went wron[A]g
[G]Now it's starting to get to me
[D]All of this inhumanity
A Em?7 D
Hey Jesus can you give me a ride back home
[G]You wouldn't know it by [D]looking at me now
[G]But I was showing some promise[D] once upon a time
[A]But it's gone n[G6add9]ow
[A]And it ain't [G6add9]coming back
[A]My time's come an[G6add9]d gone
[A]It's as simpl[G6add9]e as that
[D]Hey Jesus this world is just too troublesome for me
I try to fight off all these devils but I'm just[A] too weak
[G]When I'm out here walking all alone
[D]I feel like taking my life but I won't
A Em?7 D
Too big a coward, can you give me a ride back home
Hey Jesus can you give me a ride back home
Hey Jesus can you give me a ride back home
