      About "A Modern Day Prodigal Son"

      Lyrics for Brantley Gilbert - "A Modern Day Prodigal Son"

      I set out one night in the fast lane bound for freedom
      In a truck that daddy bought me
      And money mom had saved for school

      I laid down all my books and picked up the drinking
      Hell I let 'em down
      When I gave up like a fool

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

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

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

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

      [Chorus: x2]
