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 Pa

Everybody said, "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
'Cause 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 Pa

Everybody said, '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
'Cause 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?
He confessed to the killing
