The Devil Had A Hold Of Me Lyrics

Now, I was just a girl of two
Now, I was just a girl of two
With golden heart and a button shoe

The devil had a hold of me
The devil had hold of me
I turned my head and I could see
The devil had hold of me

There was something wrong with the butcher's boy
Was something wrong with the butcher's boy?
He trembled in his hand and voice

The devil had a hold of me
The devil had hold of me
The others knew to let him be
But the devil had hold of me

Now the tailpipe spit and the engine roared
The tailpipe spit and the engine roared
I was wavin' out the plymouth door

And the devil had a hold of me
The devil had hold of me
The old folks saw the last they'd see
The devil had hold of me

I dreamed last night that the time was done
I dreamed last night that my time was done
My soul flew up to holy Son

But the devil had a hold of me
The devil had hold of me
I snapped back down when he pulled my lead
The devil had hold of me

There're those who'll laugh and not believe
There're those who'll laugh and not believe
Until you feel that touch upon your sleeve

The devil had a hold of me
The devil had hold of me
I turned my head and I could see
The devil had hold of me

I turned my head and I could see
The devil had hold of me
