The Devil & I

verse 1:
I cried, cried, cried along each mile of my ride,
I left years ago, but still no end in sight.
I tried, tried, tried to keep my eyes open wide,
but as the sun set down again I saw my sign.
As the yellow rose of Texas bloomed before me,
I saw a fire in the sky. . .
And as I fly, fly, fly from this fate that won't ignore me,
I wish I'd looked the Devil in the eye.

verse 2:
All around, 'round, 'round broken dreams and fate befell me,
they remind me of the things that passed me by.
Where I'm bound, bound, bound I don't know, and you can't tell me,
and I may not reach my end before I die.
Up on this high and lonesome highway that I wander
I hear the old home call to me. . .

Going down, down, down to that place that I remember
It just doesn't look the way it used to be.
I'm sure I 'aint half the man I used to be
