Well I was caught up with myself on the highway at night
G A7 D
Drivin like a bat outta hell when I beheld an amazing sight
G C G
It was a lonely apparition by the roadside standing there
G D G
With his thumb out in the wilderness and a halo in his hair
He said "Gimme a ride to heaven boy
I'll show you paradise
Yeah gimme a ride to heaven boy
My name is Jesus Christ"
So I come screeching to a haltm, I said "Hop on in"
He sais "thanks a lot for the lift, I forgive you of your sins
Yeah I just come from Jerusalem where things are going bad
Ahhh gimme a ride to heaven boy, I need to talk to my dad"
Well I didn't know what to do so I jammed her down in gear
Kind a kicked my feet beneath the seat I was trying to hide the beer
Ahhh but he just grinned and said "My friend, I know you must think it's odd
But you got nothin to fear about drinkin a beer if you share it with the son of God"
Well I saw good news in his baby blues so I stomped it on the floor
I said you have to show me how to get there 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, its sittin right here inside with you"
Then right in the middle of that perfect smile from his robes he pulled a gun
An stuck it up beside my head and said "How's this for Kingdom Come?"
Well I pulled off scared but I heard him say as he left me beneath the stars
"The Lord moves in mysterious ways and tonight, my son ... He’s gonna use your car"
