I knew him when he held his head up high
And there was love and laughter in his eyes
And then one day the devil's doll came by
She tempted him and he fell.

I knew him when he wouldn't stay away
From home all night and drink till break of day
But devil doll's all have a certain way
Of changing heaven to hell.

She took his heart that never was untrue
And taught him things the devil taught her too
Till he became someone I never knew
Who lied and cheated and left me.

But now and then I see him passing by
In shabby clothes and lost and empty eyes
With feel of hate for her that never dies
The devil's doll was she
I knew him when he loved me...
