The Devil Can Quote Scripture

I met him by the roadside
38 special in my hand
Could not see by the light of the moon
I could barely even stand

You got your business straight
He asked me with a grin
I put my gun between his ribs
And I asked him back again

What you sow you reap, he said
I thought about it hard
I done missed that train I said
And I pulled the trigger hard

If you ever in west Texas
Where the wind blows so hard
You better keep your business straight
Keep your cover screwed down hard

The devil can quote scripture
Better than you can
You better keep a 38 special
Close by to hand
