Song Lyrics


Devil Don't Sleep
by Mike Farris

Album: Live from Westlake Studio B


The devil put a sign out on the edge of town
Live it up now before they lay you down!
They standin' in line as I was startin' to leave
The men and the women and a coupla thieves

Now the moon ain't shinin'
And the stars just hide
I can't miss that train
When it blows through here tonite
The hills are howlin' and the river is risin'
And the devil don't sleep tonite

Move on, up a little higher
Save my soul from the burnin' fires
The Good Book is my temple
Holy Spirit's my sword
And I won't rest until I see my Lord

The fox is in the hen house
And he's handin' out keys
He's a cool politician
He'll set your mind at ease
He gonna lead 'em out the front door
In the broad daylight
And you best believe he's eatin chicken tonite

Mother Teresa's outside beggin' for a dime
She says she needs it to fix her busted spine
She says the burden is heavy
But it suits me fine
Now gimme what you got
And I will tell you the time.
she sang....

Move on, up a little higher
Save my soul from the burnin' fires
The Good Book is my temple
Holy Spirit's my sword
And I won't rest until I see my Lord

Look at the valley, it's eerily quiet
It's a cool misconception
I won't tell you no lies
If you look a little harder
And listen you'll find
People screamin' out their windows for
Redemption tonite

Now the storms are raging out over the seas
The wolves they're singing and the birds won't eat
You better find high ground, child
Before daylight
We might be crossing Jordan tonight

Move on, up a little higher
Save my soul from the burnin' fires
The Good Book is my temple
Holy Spirit's my sword
And I won't rest until I see my Lord

Move on, up a little higher
Save my soul from the burnin' fires
The Good Book is my temple
Holy Spirit's my sword
And I can't sleep until I see my Lord
