    There was something wrong with the butcher's boy

    Was something wrong with the butcher's boy

    He trembled in his hand and voice

    The devil had a hold of me (x2)

    The others knew to let him be

    But the devil had a hold of me

     

    Now the tailpipe spit and the engine roared

    The tailpipe spit and the engine roared

    I's waving out the Plymouth door

    And the devil had a hold of me 

    The devil had a hold of me

    The old folks saw the last they'd see

    The devil had a hold of me

    Instrumental

    I dreamed last night that my time was done (x2)

    And my soul flew up to the holy son

    But the devil had a hold of me

    The devil had a hold of me

    I snapped back down when he pulled my lead

    The devil had a hold of me

    Instrumental

    There're those who'll laugh and not believe (x2)

    Until you feel that touch upon your sleeve

    The devil had a hold of me (x2)

    I turned my head and I could see

    The devil had a hold of me (x2)
