The Devil's Just a Shadow ©

http://www.traditionalcountrymusicwriters.com/TCMW/Song/Song09.htm

He stood by watching when the good Lord lit the sun
He shouted to the universe now my time's begun
I'll make kings and I'll make queens I'll make some men slaves
I'll show them all the same respect when I greet them in their graves

He can make any man suddenly go blind
With just a stroke of envy green brushed across his mind
Solely on his will he can paint this earth blood red
Make a fool lose his soul in another man's bed

Look upon his canvas you can see the gold of fools
There for anyone who will reason by his rules
He used all the colors yellow white red and black
He stripped us of our conscience as we striped our brothers' back

If you should see what you desire don't hesitate to ask
Anything that might seek he'll place within your grasp
He don't need your money you don't have to pay
You'll give him what he's looking for on your judgment day

Chrs:

The devil's just a shadow but he paints pretty pictures
He hangs them in the hall ways of our minds
Me and you and other fools we stroll down his gallery
Looking for the heaven we can't find

I know this has been up here awhile but I've been missing in action and trying to get caught up.  I really like your work.  This song is radio ready.  Great job.

A song about Satan that has some real intellectual depth. Who'da thunk THAT would be done.

I'm a little in awe of your accomplishment.
