From the recording Certain Shade Of Blue
I never believed in Hell ’til I married my wife
So I must admit she brought religion to my life
I always wanted someone to love
But, marrying her, what the hell was I thinkin’ of?
I made a deal with the devil to divorce his sister
Since she’s been gone, you know I’ve never missed her
Now I can begin to forget about the last time I kissed her
Though now I have to call the devil “Mister”
When he took her back, he said: “Enjoy your life.”
Then he said somethin’ about me bein’ his when I die
But eternal damnation is a fair price to pay
For not wakin’ up with her in this life every day
Somebody said a bargain with the devil is no bargain at all
But all I’ve got to say is they never met his sister
