Chorus:
Shut the door, keep out the devil
Shut the door, keep the devil in the night
Shut the door, keep out the devil
Light the candle everything's alright
Light the candle everything's alright

When I was a baby child (shut the door, keep out the
Devil)
Good and bad was just a game (shut the door, keep the
Devil in the night)
Many years and many trials (shut the door, keep out the
Devil)
They proved to me they not the same (shut the door,
Keep the devil in the night)

Chorus

Oh, satan is an evil charmer (shut the door, keep out
The devil)

He's hungry for a soul to hurt (shut the door, keep the
Devil in the night)
And without your holy armor (shut the door, keep out
The devil)
He will eat you for dessert (shut the door, keep the
Devil in the night)

Chorus

My mama used to sing this song (shut the door, keep out
The devil)
Poppa used to sing it, too (shut the door, keep the
Devil in the night)
Jesus called and took them home (shut the door, keep
Out the devil)
And so I sing the song for you (shut the door, keep the
Devil in the night)

Chorus
