The Devil’s Spine

Music & Lyrics Paul Dougherty

I don’t know where I am, but I’m feeling lost
I don’t know where I’ve been, but I’ve paid the cost
Out here in this town
With my money on the double cross

You say you got one foot in and one foot out the door
You say you got one foot in and one foot out the door
Don’t know if you’re coming or going
But the ghosts are howling out for more

Sleepin’ in the rail yard, when I call your name
Sleepin’ in the rail yard, from there I call your name
You might look like an angel
But you’re the devil in my coat of pain

You got cocaine eyes, you got whisky breath
You’re the love of mine but you’re the needle of death
A pack of wild jackals, dressed up to the nines
Out here alone and I’m suckin’ on the devil’s spine

That’s enough of the whining, I don’t give a goddamn
If you want to do me in, baby here I am
You can nail me to the cross
And feast on the blood running through my hands

You got cocaine eyes, you got whisky breath
You’re the love of mine but you’re the needle of death
A pack of wild jackals, dressed up to the nines
Out here alone and I’m suckin’ on the devil’s spine
