    Default The Devil Dropped by for a Drink (CTG)

    The Devil Dropped by for a Drink

    The Devil rode
    on my shoulder; his coarse words
    fouled my ears tellin me
    to stray from the path.

    Two-bit roadhouses, two-bit whorrs,
    I swilled Wild Turkey by the quart,
    messed with dames more than I ought.
    Then I sowed my seed in Kalamazoo.

    Mazie was her name -- did I love her?
    Knew her in the Biblical sense is all.
    Our marriage ended in a drunken brawl,
    broken mirrors, broken vows; she called me

    a louse -- I cursed her for an ungrateful bichh.
    Now I've got a daughter, and that's the hitch.
    Can't get to see Suzie no matter how I try.
    The law keeps me two hundred yards away.

    Yep, in my shack, the Devil still drops by
    shares a bottle of Jimmy Beam with me.
    I seen the Devil and Jimmy
    more than I seen Suzie.

    As you see I had to use a couple of "euphemism" type spellings for the words I meant... you'll get it
