C                                              F 
I set out one night in the fast lane bound for freedom 
           Am 
in a truck that daddy bought me 
                                 G 
and money mom had saved for school 

C                                          F 
I laid down all my books and picked up the drinking 
       Am 
hell I let 'em down 
                         G 
when i gave up like a fool 

        F                                  C   
and one reckless night just lookin' for my whiskey 
          F                                G 
I found a bible mama gave me and read a while 
  F                                       Am 
I read a story 'bout a man who lived just like me 
             C                              G 
then finally ate his pride and came runnin' home 

                 Am          F 
lord I'm a renegade, a rambler 
     C                   G 
I've squandered all I've owned 
           Am             F 
a bonified runaway, I'm a gambler 
      C                   G 
can't count the lies I've told 
           Am 
and I need redemption, how 'bout forgiveness 
      C             G                    F 
and I pray for open arms 
                  G                             Am 
'cause I'm comin' home, like a modern day prodigal son 

C                                      F 
I had all of my things packed by early mornin' 
            Am                                 G 
I left that bottle I'd lost right there on the bathroom floor 
C                                       F 
I stopped at a payphone and called back home to mama 
        Am                        G 
yeh she might not even talk after all I've done 

          F                       C   
the phone rang twice before I got an answer 
         F                        G 
and mama nearly dropped the phone when she heard me say 
  F                                Am 
I said mama it's your son and will yall have me 
             C                        G 
she said son you know I've longed for this day  

                
  Am          F 
lord I'm a renegade, a rambler 
     C                   G 
I've squandered all I've owned 
           Am             F 
a bonified runaway, I'm a gambler 
      C                   G 
can't count the lies I've told 
           Am 
and I need redemption, how 'bout forgiveness 
      C             G                    F 
and I pray for open arms, and be with me lord 
                  G                             Am 
'cause I'm comin' home, like a modern day prodigal son
