Come with me son, let me tell you
I’ve got a story I’d like to tell
It may not be the type you like
But it’s all true, just as well
You can choose to listen or to walk away
But the time has come, and it’s all I’ve got to say

There are shadows that sometimes haunt this place
There are visions of distant satin and lace
I can’t remember, you know I’m tryin’ to forget
I’ve always been ready and now things are set

To ride on, into that big pie in the sky
To ride on, among the closest of friends
To ride on, into the eastern sunset
To ride on, until the daylight ends

Come with me daughter, let me show you
How I paved the road to hell
The story may be vicious you know
But it’s all true, just as well
I’ve made the penance in shades of grey
So will God listen . . . or walk away?

There are reasons why I do the things I do
Some lie in me, and some within you
I can’t remember, you know I try to forget
I’ve always been ready and now things are set

To ride on, into that big pie in the sky
To ride on, among the closest of friends
To ride on, into the eastern sunset
To ride on, until the daylight ends

Come with me son, let me tell you
I’ve got a story I’d like to tell
It may not be the type you like
But it’s all true, just as well
You can choose to listen or to walk away
But the time has come, and it’s all I’ve got to say
