Jay Gaunt - Devil Dealt The Blues lyrics

I am just a poor man, gambling on a dream;
Waiting for the best hand a hustler's ever seen.
Been betting on the best deal the masters said cad can't loose;
Heaven sent me an angel, when the Devil dealt the Blues.

Daddy died when I was young and Momma raised me well
She said walk the path your poppa preached to pass the gates of Hell.
Cocaine & Whiskey near where the things I'd choose;
Heaven sent me and angel when the Devil dealt the Blues.

I was broken when my lady left, my child and pride was lost;
So I faced the world with chips all in, regardless of the cost.
There ain't no accountant that can tally up my dues;
Heaven sent me an angel when the Devil dealt the Blues.

Tried to take the fast road by playin' with my charm;
Bluffin' easy ladies and feelin' safe from harm.
Barefoot I'm runnin', scared I found my shoes;
Heaven sent me an angel, when the Devil dealt the Blues.

I wish my Dad could see me now all grown & on my own;
To see the things that I have done and the harvest I have grown.
My makers made a rainbow of all colors and bright hues;
Because heaven sent me an angel when the Devil dealt the Blues.
