Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music
by Geoff Moore, The Distance

Album: Over The Edge
by Geoff Moore, The Distance


I want the people to know that he saved my soul,
I still like to listen to the radio,
They say rock 'n' roll is wrong,
We'll give you one more chance,
I feel so good I wanna get up and dance.

I know what's right, I know what's wrong, I don't confuse it,
All I'm really trying to say: why should the devil have all the good music?
I been filled, I feel okay, yeah,
Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away.

They say to cut my hair, they're driving me insane,
Grew it out long to make room for my brain,
But sometimes people don't understand what a good boy's doing in a rock 'n' roll band.

There's nothing wrong with playing blues licks, but if you got a reason I wanna hear it,
Why should the devil have all the good music?
I been filled, I feel okay, yeah,
Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away.

Let me see some hands,
Come on.

Yeah,
Alright, listen...

I ain't knocking the hymns; just give me a song that has a beat,
I ain't knocking the hymns; give me a song that moves my feet,
I don't like none of them funeral marches; I ain't dead yet.

C'mon.

Alright,
Here we go,
All I wanna, I wanna, I wanna say,
Why should the devil have all the good music?
All I wanna, I wanna, I wanna say,
Why should the devil have all the good music?
All I wanna, I wanna, I wanna say,
Why should the devil have all the good music?
All I wanna, I wanna, I wanna say,
Why should the devil have all the good music?
Aren't you glad he doesn't y'all?
C'mon,

Jesus told the truth and Jesus showed the way,
One more thing I'd like to say....
They nailed him to the cross, they laid him in the ground, they shoulda known you can't keep Jesus Christ down, no,
I feel good every day, I don't wanna lose it.
All I wanna, I wanna, one more time now,
Why should the devil have all the good music?
I've been filled, I feel okay,
Jesus is the rock, he rolled my blues...
He'll roll your blues...
Jesus is the rock, he'll roll your blues away.
