Devil walks behind you
Sneakin' ever ready to steal your world away
No matter what you mean to
He'll have you saying things you really should not say

It's not that I'm a bad man
Had my good intentions just like all the rest
But when he gets behind you
It's hard to see for real it's hard to know what's best

But just 'cause I missed it
No need to get all bitter 'n twisted

Pocket full of promises
But promises don't buy your things or pay your way
I had it my palm girl
Now there's just an empty hand down there today

But just 'cause I missed it
No need to get all bitter 'n twisted
I said just 'cause I missed it
No need to get all bitter 'n twisted

I tried to walk the straight line
Tried to pass the swingin' door on my way home
I thought about the good things
Then I thought about the bad things too and was undone

I miss my wife and kids now
Miss all the little things we used to do and say
Devil walks behind you
Sneakin' ever ready to steal your soul away

But just 'cause I missed it
No need to get all bitter 'n twisted
I said just 'cause I missed it
No need to get all bitter 'n twisted
