The Devil in Me

V1
I try to always do what Jesus told me to do.
But it’s hard talking to people like you.
I read the scriptures daily to be the best man I can be.
But morons like you bring out the devil in me.

C
The devil in me don’t give a damn.
He ain’t patient, and he’s a cold-hearted man.
He don’t want to hear you run your mouth the way you normally do.
The devil in me will beat the Hell out of you.

V2
You keep talking at me like I don’t understand.
The truth is I don’t give a damn.
I do the best I can to always show my Christian side.
But one more cross word and I’m gonna dot both your eyes

C
The devil in me don’t give a damn.
He ain’t patient, and he’s a cold-hearted man.
He don’t want to hear you run your mouth the way you normally do.
The devil in me will beat the Hell out of you.

V3
Now just look at what you made me do.
Your face is all purple, black and blue.
I’ll go home and ask for forgiveness when I pray.
But it’s all your fault because you heard me say…

C
The Devil in me don’t give a damn.
He ain’t patient, and he’s a cold-hearted man.
He didn’t want to hear you run your mouth the way you always do.
The Devil in me just beat the hell out of you.

I can almost picture Hank Jr. singing this in the vein of Attitude Adjustment.
Another good one BRD.
