Lyrics

Dancin' with the Devil

Written By: Shane Mendel, Jr.

Jesse was a wild child throughout his teenage years
He spent his days chasin' women and drinkin' way too many beers.
He burnt up the roads in that small Mississippi town,
caused so much trouble that nobody wanted him around.
The cops had warrants, his priest prayed prayers, his momma cried tears but Jessie had no cares
(Chorus)
cause he's dancin' with the Devil, two steppin' his way to Hell,
The good Lord was there to save him but he was too far under that spell
Don't know if he'll ever get to see the Pearly Gates,
by the time he sees the light it just might be too late.
(2nd verse)
Well Uncle Sam came a callin' in the spring of 2003,
and Jessie was right there fightin' beside me.
He swears that when we leave Iraq
he's gonna get his life on track,
but as the bullets fly by he aint thinkin' bout that
he's just tryin to stay alive
(Chorus)
(3rd Verse)
Well we finally made it home and Jessie's no longer alone
He met a girl that changed his life and he made that girl his wife
But too much whiskey at the bar tonight
makes takin' another man's woman to bed alright
Then that man busts through the door and puts six in Jessie's chest from a .44 now Jessie won't ever be cold no more
(2nd Chorus)
cause he's dancin' with the Devil two steppin' down in Hell.
the good Lord was there to save him but he was too far under that spell
Now he won't ever get to see the Pearly Gates
cause he didn't see the light and now its too damn late.
(2nd Chorus repeat)
