The Devil There Too

Written by: Pierce Edens



I knew a woman who had a smile like a loaded gun
She moved from room to room like she’s on the run
Lived her life like she had something to prove
Could never ever sit still was always on to something new


And I say, ooh, what are you going to do

When all that trouble’s taken root?
It doesn’t none the good things that she done
How far away she try and run ’cause there’s a devil there

There’s a devil there, too.



I knew a woman who had a house that she couldn’t call home
Was sad from too many years of sleeping alone
Rather had a love like a candle been taken away
She had a heart that would bleed most every day


And I say what are you gonna do

When a hand like that has been dealt to you?

When her love he got taken away

So she spend most everyday with a devil there
There’s a devils there, too.



I knew a woman with the way like a falling snow

Everything was just so pure anywhere she go

She went away to find a man to plant a garden with

She looked like a wilted flower when she did


I say, ooh, what are you gonna do?

When all that green gets tinted in a shade of blue

When the mud mixes with the snow

Where did that lost halo go
?
There’s a devils there
, too
There’s a devil there, too.
