Lyrics

Mistress of the Devil (June 2007 Ruby James and Rene Reyes)


I've been the Mistress of the Devil, ever since you came around
i've been in and out of trouble, and it's all around the town
you told me you'd never leave me, then you were nowhere to be found

now i'm standing on a Steelbridge, looking up and down here for a fight
and there's a whiskey river flowin', let it carry me away into the night
only a soldier could save me, but there's no soldier in site

Chorus

you've left me stranded at the drawbridge again
i keep tryin' to find a way but you won't let me in
if it was made of wood i'd burn the whole thing down
maybe you might notice me when i'm not around

The Mistress of the Devil, it was all part of his plan
but I might stay with him forever, oh he's the only one who understands
when i needed someone to save me, he was the only lovin' man

Chorus

you've left me stranded at the drawbridge again
i keep tryin' to find a way but you won't let me in
if it was made of wood i'd burn the whole place down
maybe you might notice me when i'm not around

the Mistress of the Devil, it was all part of his plan
yea i'm the Mistress of the Devil, oh he's the only one who understands
yea i'm the Mistress of the Devil, and he's the only lovin' man
oh i'm the Mistress of the Devil, and he's the only lovin' man
oh i'm the Mistress of the Devil,
'cause he's the only lovin' man
the only lovin' man
