"Ride Me Back Home" lyrics - WILLIE NELSON

WILLIE NELSON
"Ride Me Back Home"

We rode into battle barebacked and saddled
You took the wound in your side
You pulled the sleds and you pulled the wagons
You gave 'em somewhere to hide
Now they don't need you and there's no one to feed you
And there's fences where you used to roam
I wish I could gather up all of your brothers
And you would just ride me back home

[Chorus:]
Ride me back home to a much better place
Blue skies and sunshine and plenty of space
Somewhere where they would just leave you alone
Somewhere that you could call home
And you would just ride me back home

I got a small place up in the foothills
Where green grass is precious as gold
I paid a fortune for what little I got here
But you know that I'd sell my soul
To have all the mountains, the rivers and valleys
The places where you need to roam
I would just gather up all of your brothers
And you would just ride me back home

[Chorus:]
Ride me back home to a much better place
Blue skies and sunshine and plenty of space
Somewhere where they would just leave you alone
Somewhere that you could call home
And you would just ride me back home

[Chorus:]
Ride me back home to a much better place
Blue skies and sunshine and plenty of space
Somewhere where they would just leave you alone
Somewhere that you could call home
And you would just ride me back home
