Me And The Devil

It’s hard to be good when when keeping such bad company
Diminished Ragtime Blame-shifting Blues

Ain’t nobody here ‘cept me and the devil
Nobody here except me and the devil
Nobody here ‘cept me and the devil
Hatchin’ out plots and schemes

If I get caught I’m gonna blame the devil
I get caught then I’m gonna blame the devil
When I get caught I’m gonna blame the devil
And he’s prob’ly gonna blame me

Oh me, oh my
Be good? I’ve tried
Bad fruit, bad tree
It’s hard to be good when being bad comes naturally

My woman says sometimes I speak like the devil
Pound on the pulpit and preach like the devil
Swears she’d rather switch seats with the devil
Than be married to a man like me

Oh me, oh my
Be good? I’ve tried
Bad root, bad seed
It’s hard to be good when when keeping such bad company

Gonna get drunk and blame it on the devil
Gonna blow chunks and just blame it on the devil
Show everyone my junk and claim it was the devil
Let the lawyers plead insanity
That’s how it is between the devil and me
