Come Home Johnny Bridie lyrics

I'm full of pride and my heart feels good.
Got news from my family 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 and 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 a pa.
Everybody said the kid's no good.

Come home, Johnny Bridie, come home,
Johnny Bridie, 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 and hardly grown,
when they found me in the swamp face down in the mud.

Couldn't get back and I couldn't go far.
So I said to myself stay right where you are.
Done found yourself a ma and a pa.
Everybody said the kid's no good.

Come home, Johnny Bridie, come home,
Johnny Bridie, 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.

Come home, Johnny Bridie, come home,
Johnny Bridie, come home.
We're all wrong without you.
How did we ever doubt you?
