"Well I'll take two shots," said the Devil to the man and layed a little book on the bar
Well Lord knows the Devil he only talks shit and only drinks whiskey from the jar
And his hands were raw
And his eyes were cold
And his breath was pure alcohol
And the sound of his voice it never got old
And he talked and talked and talked through the night kept sippin his shine till the mornin light tumbled in through the shades and as he started to go I put three bullets in his back.

Well the Devil's bleedin crude oil from a hole in his chest
And its panging on the bedpan drippin through the bedsheets
And all the businessmen are putting pails beneath his wounds
And pawnin' the oil at the market
Well his heart ain't made of nothin' but piss and vinegar
And his boots have trampled more than you would know
And his breath has split open the thermometer on the sill
It's so fucking cold in here since you brought in the snow

Black heart leakin' oil in the pan
Dealin' insults with his free hand in this hospital bed bleedin'
Black heart you shot the plan to hell and the apathy ate you up inside

Black heart leakin' oil in the pan
Dealin' insults with his free hand in this hospital bed bleedin'
Black heart you shot the plan to hell and the apathy ate you up inside

Like slivers of lead inside your food he's the poison inside you
And you eat until you're full
And you eat until you're full
He lit the fires inside your belly full of medicine and whiskey
All the aspirin, valium, codiene pills and silver rum

Someone sing a hail mary for this house bless the corners and burn the devil out
Someone sing a hail mary for this house bless the corners and burn the devil out
Someone sing a hail mary for this house bless the corners and burn the devil out
Someone sing a hail mary for this house
Someone sing a hail mary for this house
Someone sing a hail mary for this house
