Devil Inside
« on: May 04, 2017, 10:02:51 PM »
Alex finds an empty bench in the market place and sits down.  He unslings his battered guitar case setting it on the ground and opening it.  He pulls out an old brass resonator guitar and begins to play.


From early mornin' till I go to bed,
I've got a devil livin' in my head.
I should be running buy there's nowhere to run.
Even if I ran until the mornin' come.

Oh Devil, inside me won't you leave me alone,
Won't you just release me 'fore I'm to far gone.
Oh Devil, inside me won't you let me be,
You know with what you're doin' we will never be free.

You whisper softly and you think I will hear,
But it your motive that I'm coming to fear.
Your sweet temptations they mean nothing to me,
Release your grip devil, man just let me be.

Oh Devil, inside me won't you leave me alone,
Won't you just release me 'fore I'm to far gone.
Oh Devil, inside me won't you let me be,
You know with what you're doin' we will never be free.

My heart is steady, I won't be denied,
I know the Devil can't be satisfied.
Oh wily Devil, you won't get my soul,
You hear that Devil, now crawl back in your hole.

Oh Devil, inside me won't you leave me alone,
Won't you just release me 'fore I'm to far gone.
Oh Devil, inside me won't you let me be,
You know with what you're doin' we will never be free.
