The Devil Named Music Lyrics

We drove all night to Billings, Montana
Flew into Utah, slept there all day
I can't remember stopping in Denver
Yeah, I live my illusion that somebody needs me to playAnd sometimes I'm drunk
And sometimes I'm stoned
And yes, I get tired of being alone
I miss my son
And I miss my wife
But the devil named music is taking my lifeNow I sold my soul a long time ago
I put it in a six string and a sad melody
And I'm sometimes a winner, most times a loser
If the crowd gets into it, it'll all feel the same way to meAnd sometimes I'm drunk
And sometimes I'm stoned
And yes, I get tired of being alone
I miss my daughter
And I miss my wife
But the devil named music is taking my lifeSometimes I'm drunk
Sometimes I'm stoned
And yes, I get tired of being alone
I miss my son
And I miss my wife
But the devil named music is taking my lifeSometimes I'm drunk
And sometimes I'm stoned
Yes, I get tired of being alone
And I miss my daughter
And I miss my wife
But the devil named music is taking my life
Yeah the devil named music is taking my life
