(Raul Malo)

Well, I'm the kind of man who was raised up to believe
The path that takes you through your life
Should be straight as it can be
Well, my wondering ways have led to some painful memories
Now the Devil's come to take my soul
So won't you save a prayer for me

When I was a younger man I knew I'd see the day
When everything I ever loved would all be swept away
By the moonlit tides that never made a difference to me
Now you better save a prayer for me

So won't you save a prayer
Save a prayer
And show me that somebody out there really cares
Someday you're gonna wish that you had walked this way with me
Now you better save a prayer for me

Well I've been around the world to a place I can't recall
And I've done things that make a mortal man get down and crawl
Now the Devil's got control of what goes on inside of me
Now you better save a prayer for me

So won't you save a prayer
Save a prayer
And show me that somebody out there really cares
Someday you're gonna wish that you had walked this way with me
Now you better save a prayer for me

Well, I wish that you could see what these tired eyes have seen
For they no longer have a glow of the man that used to be
But there's still a flame inside of me that burns so endlessly
Now the Devil's come to take my soul
So won't you save a prayer for me

Won't you save a prayer ...
Save a prayer
And show me that somebody out there really cares
Someday you're gonna with that you had walked this way with me
Now you better save a prayer for me

Oh won't you save a prayer
Save a prayer
And show me that somebody out there really cares
Someday you're gonna wish that you had walked this way with me
Now you better save a prayer for me
Now you better save a prayer for me
Now you better save a prayer for me
