James Bonamy – The Devil Goes Fishin' lyrics

(Pat Bunch/Doug Johnson)

Wake up honey let me talk to you
I had a dream last night that just can't come true
About a man and a woman stuck right in the middle of heaven and you know where
I hate to say they looked a lot like us
When I saw 'em fight and I heard 'em fuss
And I woke up with a premonition
We just best beware

The devil goes fishin' in trouble water
He'll come callin' if we don't bother
To make things right and love the way it's supposed to be
There's an angel sittin' on our right shoulder
But she won't stay there if it gets much colder
We better watch out or it'll get a lot hotter
Cause the devil goes fishin' in troubled water

There are times we cross the line and let selfishness and foolish pride
Leave us weak and make a big ol' target out of you and me
But sweet forgiveness can fix it all
And add another rock to that mighty wall
That keeps the harsh winds out and helps to calm that mean ol' ranging sea

The devil goes fishin' in trouble water
He'll come callin' if we don't bother
To make things right and love the way it's supposed to be
There's an angel sittin' on our right shoulder
But she won't stay there if it gets much colder
We better watch out or it'll get a lot hotter
Cause the devil goes fishin' in troubled water

So let's put up a posted sign
That says no fishin' in your heart and mine
Trespassers best beware
'Cause there's a big ol' love in there

The devil goes fishin' in trouble water
He'll come callin' if we don't bother
To make things right and love the way it's supposed to be
There's an angel sittin' on our right shoulder
But she won't stay there if it gets much colder
We better watch out or it'll get a lot hotter
Cause the devil goes fishin' in troubled water

The devil goes fishin' in trouble water
He'll come callin' if we don't bother
To make things right and love the way it's supposed to be
There's an angel sittin' on our right shoulder
But she won't stay there if it gets much colder
We better watch out or it'll get a lot hotter
Cause the devil goes fishin' in troubled water
