11. Devil on My Trail


Give me a river so I can drink it up,  Bring me the sea so I can feast
And I begged you “bring down the rain,  so you’ll follow me no more”

Oh Ma, the devil is on my trail,  Oh Ma, the devil is on my trail

And so you asked me “is this enough to make you bleed?”
The night is all I need to make my leave from you

I heard your footsteps beneath my skin, Moving fast, closing in.
Son you can pray and you will. Either way, faith slips from you

I believed in the river, oh man
And I went where the river told me
I set my sail to the open sea
But my eyes saw the river was a lie
The devil’s on my trail, oh lord,
The devil’s on my trail, oh lord
The devil’s on my trail, oh lord

Oh Ma, the devil is on my trail, Oh Ma, the devil is on my trail
