Story Behind the Song

One day my youngest sister and me were attending a funeral for a relative that had passed away. We had arrived at the grave sight early and while waiting for the rest of the attendees to arrive we did what most people do when they find themselves in a cem

Lyrics

?If I Could Go Back?
Words & Melody by Juda McGlover
© 1993


Verse 1

Little Johnny G- just wanted to belong
He was just a small guy
And the pack looked so strong

Mama say to Johnny
?What a minute don?t do these things?
But he was far gone
He couldn?t hear a word that she said

Now he?s hanging with the bad crowd
Now he?s running with the big guys
Never thinking of tomorrow
Or the price of future sorrow

And as we stood
Where his body lay
Seems like I could almost hear him say

If I could go back
And tell my friends
I?d tell them the way
That it should have went

Walk away from the world and then
Let Jesus come in
If I could Go back and tell my friends



Verse 2

Oh their hearts seem too hard to reach for
Killing and killing again
But they don?t see the trap door

Until a cold day that?s so gory
A hundred times the same old story

And as we stood
Where so many of them lay
Seems like I could almost hear them say

If I could go back
And tell my friends
I?d tell them the way
That it should have went

I?d speak to till their
Hearts would bend
And then I?d shout it to the wind
If I could go back
And tell my friends

Bridge
If I had a known
I would have raised my hands to the sky
I would have said no to the devil
I would have praised the most high

If I had a known
I would have said no to the lies
I would have put my foot on the devil
So he would not take my life

If I could go back
And tell my friends
I?d tell them the way
That it should have been

For death is the wage of sin
And then a cold and bitter end
If I could go back
And tell my friends

Hey hey hey
If I could go back
And tell my friends
