He's a refugee from the highway
Out there fighting for years
Whether by God or by glory
He's been traveling through his fears
And he always feels that his next step
Will surely set him free
So be kind when he approaches
'Cause that rebel could be me

He doesn't know that the road's been dying
Dying for so many years
Traveling in his darkness
He's been traveling through his fears
And he left his home as a young one
Left the young one in him behind
Now his reasons for leaving
Well I'll tell you my friend
They're just a little hard to find

Chorus
When the rebel comes home
Please don't leave him alone, no, no
Let him warm his soul on your shoulder
You better touch this man who's been so much older
When the rebel comes home
Please don't leave him alone, no, no
Let him warm his soul on your shoulder
You better touch this man who's been so much older

He's been walking along the shores of deception
Turned his back on it all
But you know something must be wrong when you get that late night call
I say maybe it was wild geese on the fly
Or a mother calling her child
That brought a tear to his lonely eye
And called him back from the wild
