I met the devil at life’s crossroads
With the darkness at his side
Some say I made a foolish promise
Because of my foolish pride.
Then the darkness joined with me
As I walked down that dirt road
It turned and told me with a laugh
It was my soul that I’d just sold.
So I laughed back at the darkness
As it wrapped itself around me
I told it I’d have given a million souls
If it took that to set you free.
You see my soul would be of no value
if my sweet angel was taken from me
So damn right I sold my soul for her
And I don’t give a shit if you disagree.
I sometimes think of the hell I’ll face
Then I think of my loving wife
The cancer has stopped eating her
Because my love has saved her life.
