Devil Got Behind Me
Music and Lyrics by Bob Moline

All of my live I’ve tried to be a good man,
Workin’ and prayin’ my part of the plan.
Ev’ry time I start to get ahead with the Lord,
You come knockin’ on my front door.

Chorus:
Devil get behind me,
Don’t you trouble me now,
It ain’t to please you I got this sweat on my brow.
Got away from you once,
I’ll get away once more.
Devil get behind me,
Get away from my door.

The way you treat people,
It’s a cryin’ shame.
Temptin’ God’s children is your favorite game.
Well you can cross my name off-a your long list;
In the fire this is one soul that you’re gonna miss.

Chorus

You’ve kept man in prison for centuries.
One of these days you’re gonna set him free
˜Cause there’s a world that tells us of the good to be come
And then poor Devil you are gonna be done.

Chorus

Devil get behind me get away from my door.
