Bad Angel

Album: Up On The Ridge (2010)
  • Bad angel, get off of my shoulder
    Bad angel, let me be
    I'm standing at the cross roads
    Of Temptation and Salvation Street

    I woke up bound and determined
    That I would not light it up today
    But one drag would stop my shakin'
    Right now I could go either way

    Bad angel, get off of my shoulder now
    Bad angel, let me be
    I'm standing at the cross roads
    Of Temptation and Salvation Street

    Well the cap is on the bottle
    And the bottle is on the shelf
    Should I take it or leave it?
    Honey, how am I gonna help myself?

    Bad angel, get off of my shoulder (get on off of my shoulder)
    Bad angel, let me be (oh let me be)
    I'm standing at the cross roads
    Of Temptation and Salvation Street

    That's right,

    Well I know I should not gamble
    'Cause I can't afford to lose
    She'd hang me from the rafters
    Put the laces in my old working shoes

    Oh, bad angel, get off of my should (get on off of my shoulder)
    Bad angel, let me be
    I'm standing at the cross roads
    Of Temptation and Salvation Street
    Yes I'm standing at the cross roads
    Of Temptation and Salvation
    Temptation and Salvation
    Temptation and Salvation Street
    (Oh yeah)
    Yeah, ha ha ha haWriter/s: VERLON THOMPSON
