lyrics

Oh, the devil!
Oh, the devil!
Oh, the devil!
Oh, the devil!

Oh, the devil, went down with cloven feet
walked his red ass down to New Orleans.
Lord I know, Lord have mercy on me!
‘Cause when Lucifer laid his money down,
at a friendly game of spades and crowns.
Lord I know, I’m a wanted man.

Seems I took the life of a preacher man
I’m a wolf in sheep’s clothes with his bible in my hand,
and I’m a drifter from a town to town,
and I’m pretending that I’m that preacher now.

How long will it take only time will tell
before the chains of damnation drag me down to hell
but in the meantime, I’ll take to women and wine.
How long will it take only time will tell
before the chains of damnation drag me down to hell
but in the meantime, I’ll take to women and wine.

“Well I lied!” - That’ll be a dime.
“I cheated on my man!” - That’s a dollar twenty-five.
Now if you don’t want to go down below and rot,
you killed a man huh? Well how much you got!
‘Cause there’s a monetary price for every sin
if the pearly gates you want to get in.
So if you’ll be so kind as to put some money in my case,
you’ll leave ya with your soul intact and in God’s grace.

How long will it take only time will tell
before the chains of damnation drag me down to hell
but in the meantime, I’ll take to women and wine.
How long will it take only time will tell
before the chains of damnation drag me down to hell
but in the meantime, I’ll take to women and wine.

How long will it take? Only time will tell
before the chains of damnation drag me down to hell.
But in the meantime, I’ll take to women and wine.

Oh, the devil!
Oh, the devil!
Oh, the devil!
Oh, the devil!

Oh, the devil, went down with cloven feet
walked his red ass down to New Orleans.
Lord I know, Lord have mercy on me!
Cause when Lucifer laid his money down,
at a friendly game of spades and crowns.
Lord I know, I’m a wanted man.
Lord I know, I’m a wanted man.
