Lyrics: Brian Burns – Gimme A Ride To Heaven

Here is a Great Song! You can hear it on Radio Free Texas!

Gimme A Ride To Heaven
Terry Allen (C)opr. 1983 – Green Shoes Publishing Co. (BMI)

I was all caught up with myself
on the highway late one night,
drivin’ along like a bat out of hell
when I beheld an amazing sight.
It was a lonely apparition
by the roadside standin’ there
with a thumb out in the wilderness
and a halo in his hair.

He said, “gimme a ride to Heaven, boy,
and I’ll show you Paradise.
Gimme a ride to heaven, boy,
my name is Jesus Christ.”

Well, I came screechin’ to a halt
and I said, “hop on in.”
He said, “thanks a lot for the ride,
I forgive you of your sins.
I just came from Jerusalem
where things are goin’ bad.
Aw, gimme a ride to Heaven, boy,
I need to talk to my dad.”


Well, I didn’t know quite what to do
so I jammed ‘er down in gear,
started kickin’ my feet under the seat,
well, I was tryin’ to hide the beer.
Well, he just grinned and said,
“my friend, I know this may sound odd,
but you got nothin’ to fear about drinkin’ your beer
if you share it with The Son of God.”


Well, I saw good news in them baby blues,
so I punched ‘er to the floor.
I said, “you’ll have to show me how to get there
‘cause I ain’t been before.”
“Well, it’s a hard place to find,” he said,
“but I’ll give you a little clue:
it ain’t somewhere up in the air,
it’s sittin’ right here inside with you.”

Then right in the middle of that perfect smile,
from his robes he pulled a gun,
stuck it right upside my head,
said “how’s this for Kingdom Come?”
Well, I pulled off scared but I heard him say,
as he left me beneath the stars,
“you know The Lord moves in mysterious ways,
and tonight, my son… he gonna use your car.”
