The Devil Named Music

Album: Traveller (2015)

  • We drove all night to Billings, Montana
    Flew into Utah, slept there all day
    I can't remember stopping in Denver
    Yeah, I live my illusion that somebody needs me to play

    And sometimes I'm drunk
    And sometimes I'm stoned
    And yes, I get tired of being alone
    I miss my son
    And I miss my wife
    But the devil named music is taking my life

    Now I sold my soul a long time ago
    I put it in a six string and a sad melody
    And I'm sometimes a winner, most times a loser
    If the crowd gets into it, it'll all feel the same way to me

    And sometimes I'm drunk
    And sometimes I'm stoned
    And yes, I get tired of being alone
    I miss my daughter
    And I miss my wife
    But the devil named music is taking my life

    Sometimes I'm drunk
    Sometimes I'm stoned
    And yes, I get tired of being alone
    I miss my son
    And I miss my wife
    But the devil named music is taking my life

    Sometimes I'm drunk
    And sometimes I'm stoned
    Yes, I get tired of being alone
    And I miss my daughter
    And I miss my wife
    But the devil named music is taking my life
    Yeah the devil named music is taking my life Writer/s: Christopher Stapleton
