Description:

Lyrics: Highway Home Jesus can you hear me? I've been calling for some time Sittin' with this Bible, stealing some rhymes Are my eyes so cloudy that I cannot see ? That you only come in whispers of sacred harmony And then you turn away from me as if I should of known That praying by the bedside's not the same once you're grown And momma always told me stay away from them river girls Who'd take you in the woods at night and teach you of the world She was barely seventeen when I came falling out And the holy Martin left us that day filling her with doubt I can't find a highway home And I never want to be that alone I'm not that alone.... We might have been better left as fish muck in the drink But your holy course in miracles tapped our missing link So now we walk around all day these thoughts they're in our heads And I can't even tell my niece what happens when we're dead But I'd sure like to see my grandpa once or twice again And if you could arrange that I think we could be friends I can't find a highway home And I never want to be that alone I'm not that alone.... I know that I burn too hot, I can feel it killing me But when it all comes pouring out it's as if I could be free Are you really listening? And could you turn it off? 'Cause I feel too connected like a sow at the trough Jesus can you hear me? I've been calling for some time Sitting with this Bible, her little hand in mine She is just so tiny it makes my poor heart break And you know I'm a doubter with sins I can't forsake But I got no one left to ask and there's no one here but me So if you'd take her away tonight I'd get down on my knees Try to find her a highway home 'Cause she never ought be that alone Not that alone Not that alone.
