From Confederate Railroad (and album of the same name) in 1992. Editing the info box tonight because I've noticed that these seem to be the most-oft "mis-heard" lyrics repeated over and over on the internet. These are the correct lyrics.

I made a wish upon a star
That I could have a brand new car
Got tired of wishing
So I stole one

Seventeen and knew it all
My dreams were big but my thoughts were small
So many roads somehow I chose
The wrong one

But Jesus and mama always loved me
Even when the devil took control
Jesus and mama always loved me
This I know

I felt trapped most all my life
Found new kinds of lows and highs
Never been a husband but I've had a lot of wives
To hold me

Headstrong, stubborn, couldn't be told
Like a wild horse that couldn't be rode
A rainbow chaser hungry for gold
And still searchin'

But Jesus and mama always loved me
Even when the devil took control
Jesus and mama always loved me
This I know

I wish mom could see me now
And how I've turned it all around
Lately I've been going down
The right road

Life's a picture that you paint
With blues and grays, cans and can'ts
Heaven knows I'm not a saint
But I know

Jesus and mama always loved me
Even when the devil took control
Jesus and mama always loved me
This I know
