The devil may tread

Don't like those days that end in a Y
pain in my head I so wanna cry
I thought today I'd wake up dead
I've been to places the devil won't tread

one more drink and I'll be okay
thats what I tell myself to say
just one nip to keep out the cold
its a story that many have told

oh these lies no-one believes
even myself I can't deceive
just one more til the bottles done
another day that the devils won

tomorrows just another day
another bottle in the same old way
maybe then I'll wake up dead
in a place where the devil may tread

'Just one nip to keep out the cold'

Thank you for your time, are you interested in a collab on any of my songs I have no musical ability whatsoever; I only write words.

I've been to places the devil won't tread
what a wonderful phrase!

I like this one a lot Seamus! It's down and dirty and unrelenting.

Very good stuff. :)

I hate days that end in a Y: Killer. May be one of the best lines I ever read!

Would you like me to write music to this? (I don't have any home studio set-up and you'd have to read the lead sheet or have someone play it for you).

Let me know...

Hi
Sorry for the delay but I've only just seen this; I would love for you to put some music to this whether it be lead sheet or other that would be fantastic; I can't read music but I will find someone who can play it for me. Thank you ever so much.
