That Devil's Tail

Written By: Jimmy Mc Govern

And a cloud appeared above the holy ground
People stared but no one made a sound
Little graves were made inside the green heartland
And the girls wore white all sown by a mother's hand
Church bells rang with the whisper of an evening prayer
The leaves came down in the soft October air

A father takes the reins in his weathered hands
It's a lonesome ride all the way to the Promised Land
And the young ones turned to see a blood red sky
From night to day they'll ask each other why
There's a cross on a hillside where the bluebirds go to sing
And a schoolhouse where the angels grow their wings

Let your hearts be still let the twilight close your eyes
When the morning comes he'll be there when you rise
And this pain you fell is more than we can bear
This faith you keep is all that you will share
Let mercy and kindness rain down on your blessed soil
May the good Lord find him and break that devil's tail

May the good Lord find him and break that devil's tail
May the good Lord find him and break that devil's tail
