Oak Ridge Boys, The - Come On In (You Did The Best You Could Do) Lyrics




When I get tired and a little lonely, the worlds turned it's cold back on me
When I'm about to swear I ain't got a friend left to my name
Instead of sinking a little lower I start making tracks on over
To a place where the sun shines day and night and where I know I'll hear you say

Come on in, baby take you coat off, come on in, baby take a load off
Come on in, baby shake the blues off I'm gonna love that frown away
Come on in, baby put a smile on, come on in, baby tell me what's wrong
Come on in, the blues will be long gone I'm gonna love your hurt away

When I feel a lonesome night coming on, every thing I did all day went wrong
There's a black cloud following me around and I just can't get away
Instead of sinking a little lower I start making tracks on over
To a place where the sun shines day and night and I know I'll hear you say

Come on in, baby take you coat off, come on in, baby take a load off
Come on in, baby shake the blues off I'm gonna love that frown away
Come on in, baby put a smile on, come on in, baby tell me what's wrong
Come on in, the blues will be long gone I'm gonna love your hurt away

Come on in, baby take you coat off, come on in, baby take a load off
Come on in, baby shake the blues off I'm gonna love that frown away
Come on in, baby put a smile on, come on in, baby tell me what's wrong
Come on in, the blues will be long gone I'm gonna love your hurt away

Oak Ridge Boys, The Come On In (You Did The Best You Could Do) Comments
  1. Dr. Red Duke

    '' Fella's '' , Thats what President George Herbert Walker Bush called them . The Oakridge Boy's sang '' Amazing Grace '' at his final State funeral in Houston Texas . The Oak's and Bush had been friends since the Reagan Presidency . I have been proud, So proud to also call them close personal friends . I talk or text Duane Allen at lest once a week . You can not find a more family , Christian Quartet then the Oakridge Boy's Quartet . I encourage you to attend a concert in your are when the come to a town near you , You , Your family , wife and kids will enjoy the show !

    I think this song plays during the credits of one of the Rambo movies.

    I dreamed I was dying in Texas
    I closed my eyes and I sighed
    Like a black and white movie I saw my days
    Playing out before my eyes
    I was crippled by a life of injustice
    I was bent from walking into the wind
    I pled guilty on the day of judgment
    God just shook my hand and grinned
    And He said

    Come on in
    You did the best that you could do
    There's a little bit of right in every wrong
    There's a little bit of Me in you

    Sister I know that you're weary
    You've been slaving in the sun all day
    The burden of life in your belly
    Sorrow in your heart of clay
    Your husband was a man of passion
    And passion stole your husband away
    And your son gave his life for your freedom
    But you feel like a prisoner anyway
    Sister

    I left my home and my family
    Put my shoes in the dust of this land
    Found a job and a woman
    But nothing went the way I planned
    I was ambushed by my own good intentions
    Used up every dollar I earned
    So I went back to the home of my father
    Said your American son has returned
    Dad, your American son has returned
    He said

    When I get tired and a little lonely, the worlds turned it's cold back on me
    When I'm about to swear I ain't got a friend left to my name
    Instead of sinking a little lower I start making tracks on over
    To a place where the sun shines day and night and where I know I'll hear you say

    Come on in, baby take you coat off, come on in, baby take a load off
    Come on in, baby shake the blues off I'm gonna love that frown away
    Come on in, baby put a smile on, come on in, baby tell me what's wrong
    Come on in, the blues will be long gone I'm gonna love your hurt away

    When I feel a lonesome night coming on, every thing I did all day went wrong
    There's a black cloud following me around and I just can't get away
    Instead of sinking a little lower I start making tracks on over
    To a place where the sun shines day and night and I know I'll hear you say

    Come on in, baby take you coat off, come on in, baby take a load off
    Come on in, baby shake the blues off I'm gonna love that frown away
    Come on in, baby put a smile on, come on in, baby tell me what's wrong
    Come on in, the blues will be long gone I'm gonna love your hurt away

    Come on in, baby take you coat off, come on in, baby take a load off
    Come on in, baby shake the blues off I'm gonna love that frown away
    Come on in, baby put a smile on, come on in, baby tell me what's wrong
    Come on in, the blues will be long gone I'm gonna love your hurt away

    Byron Autry

    Aren't they good ?

  10. Todd Schneck

    When country was phenomenal!

  11. Brian Kelly

    why isn't this  song/video from Hee Haw available anymore on Youtube?

  12. TheShospitali

    this song should've been #1

    Muzikgirl67

    It came close! ..It climbed to #3 in early '86 for the Oaks!🎵🎵

    Argonwolfproject

    It's #1 in my heart and that's good enough for me.

  13. Brett Koeshall

    The Oak Ridge Boys at the height of their career back in 1986.

  14. Janis Young

    Heard this on the radio for the first time today and fell in love with it. So thank thankful that I could find it on you tube.

  15. JayDogTitan 1464

    Classic country song that's full of energy!!! awesome!!!

  16. Doc Creed

    Jesus is the only way to the Father. God requires perfection and holiness. Man won't enter into heaven without first repenting and accepting Jesus and His work on the cross. I think this song means well but it's not biblical.

    Doc Creed

    David Alexandert Hi, David. I'll have to respectfully disagree. The lyrics say "there's a little bit of right in every wrong" and "you did the best that you could do". That's not scriptural. Jesus saves those who put their trust in Him and the finished work of the cross. He doesn't need our help or good works. There is none innocent or good enough to stand before God unless they are covered in the blood of Christ (and it sounds like you agree). To the listener of this song, however, the lyrics seem to conclude God will welcome everyone into heaven. This isn't true.

    David Alexandert

    Doc Creed "There's as little bit of good in every wrong....." is a southern saying. They aren't talking about going out purposely and doing wrong. They are saying if life sometimes everything goes wrong and you started out with good intentions. And you also need to know this group is from Oak Ridge Tennessee and started out a a country gospel group also. So when you take all that into account you can see the true meaning of this song.

    Sharon Mynes

    I just love the way people like you have to inject their religious views into a beautiful heartfelt song like this. I hope you can find some peace.

    Ace Frehley

    Doc Creed the oak ridge boys are Christians buddy.

    Topgunz81

    I’ve pondered this same thing. I think we all will plead guilty on judgment day. Only those belonging to Jesus will be pardoned.

  17. Elizabeth Stewart

    love it

  18. Michael Williams

    I was eleven when I first heard this song. It was still getting a lot of airplay in January of 1986. I remember it came on the radio on January 28 the day the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded in Florida. I thought about the seven crew members as the song played and how they reached for the American dream. I will never forget that day and this song will always remember them

    Byron Autry

    Duane will want to hear about your story ! He is the lead singer for the Oakridge Boy's

  19. Brian Kelly

    why isn't this song from there performance on heehaw on here anymore?
