Gillian Welch - The Devil Had a Hold of Me lyrics



Now I was just a girl of two

Now I was just a girl of two

With a golden heart and a button shoe

The devil had a hold of me

The devil had a hold of me

I turned my head and I could see

The devil had a hold of me

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

The devil had a hold of me

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

I dreamed last night that my time was done

I dreamed last night that my time was done

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

There're those who'll laugh and not believe

There're those who'll laugh and not believe

Until you feel that touch upon your sleeve

The devil had a hold of me

The devil had a hold of me

I turned my head and I could see

The devil had a hold of me

I turned my head and I could see

The devil had a hold of me
