Lyrics

Nothin' new in this old town
The sun comes up and heads back down
Working hard from dawn to dusk again

Seventeen, and a heart for a change
The byways calling out his name, but not yet
There's too much goin' on

'Cause daddy needs a hand
And mama's tender heart might crumble to the ground
Though they'd understand, He felt like saying

When it's time to go
You've got to let me go away and face the world
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Cry some tears, don't worry
When I hit the city
I'll build you a house right down the street from mine
Have some faith in me
And I'll show you why

Some years later, late one night
He came in trying to dry his eyes
He realized what He was born to do

He said I'll always be your son
And I know you know what's going on
It's the hardest thing to think of leaving you

But this world needs a hand
And I've got just the thing they need to make it through
It's so clear to me, though I know what's coming

When it's time to go
You've got to let me go away and face the world
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Cry some tears, don't worry
When I hit the city
I'll build you a house right down the street from mine
Have some faith in me
And I'll show you why

And as they tore His flesh like animals
There were those I know who felt Him say

When it's time to go
You've got to let me go away and save the world
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Cry some tears, don't worry
When I hit the city
I'll build you a house right down the street from mine
Oh, have some faith in me
And I'll show you why

When it's time to go
You've got to let me go away and save the world
Oh, say goodbye
Cry some tears, don't worry
When I hit the city
I'll build you a house right down the street from mine
Have some faith in me
And I'll show you why

When it's time to go
You've got to let me go away and save the world
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Cry some tears, don't worry
When I hit the city
I'll build you a house right down the street from mine
Oh, have some faith in me
And I'll show you why
