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 tears fell so easy

A/F# D/F# D Dsus2 D

Daddy's handshake was strong

D/A D/F# E Esus4 E

Then I climbed aboard that Greyhound

D Dsus2 D

Eighteen and glad to be gone


Took a rented room on Broadway

A/F# D/F# D Dsus2 D

As I unpacked everything I owned

D/A D/F# E

I found a note my momma left me


With a bible and a bus ticket home (it said)



One will get you where you're goin

D D/F# D

When you haven't got a prayer


And one will bring you back son

D Dsus2 D

If your dreams ain't waiting there


You're out on your own now

D D/F# D

We won't be there to fall back on


But you know we're never farther

D A D Dsus2 D

Than a bible and a bus ticket home

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
