John McGaraghan - The Devil And I lyrics

Well I cried, cried, cried along each mile of my ride,
I left years ago, but still no end in sight.
And I tried, tried, tried to keep my eyes open wide,
but as the sun set down again I saw my sign.

As the yellow rose of Texas bloomed before me
I saw the fire in the sky
And as I fly, fly, fly from this fate that won't ignore me
I wish I'd looked he Devil in the eye.
I wish I'd looked he Devil in the eye.

All around, 'round, 'round broken dreams and fate befell me,
they remind me of the things that passed me by.
Where I'm bound, bound, bound I don't know, and you can't tell me,
and I may not reach my end before I die.

Up on this high and lonesome highway that I wander
I hear the old home call to me.
Going down, down, down to that place that I remember
It just doesn't look the way it used to be.
I'm sure I 'aint half the man I used to be
