lyrics

I headed west just as fast as the devil boils gin
blew the doors off the hinges left them scattered to the wind
I hope the devil ain't the one come to lay me to my rest
I got a six gun in one hand and another in my vest

tortured by these visions of my true love haunting me
I woke up stretched upon her grave beneath the willow tree
I went down to the crossroads but there ain't no devil there
just the full moon, broken wishes all hanging in the air

well I know and I see
fire and hail falling right through me
and I know in the end
I'll die the day I never see her again

I come from a place with evil rising in the air
it is strewn with bows and bones of many damsels fair
blood was written on the wall not seen in just any light
born into this holler that was darker than midnight

one day I broke away when the sky was fire red
deformed and marked and broken, cut a gruesome silhouette
I slicked back my hair just then as black as star lit night
I knew that love existed if I could find a bride

well I know and I see
fire and hail falling right through me
and I know in the end
I'll die the day I'll never see her again

the day I finally found her I cursed the past to stay
she put her hands upon my face said "you're handsome to me"
I'd found my love but curse me, for still I could not cease
waging war upon myself like an unrepentant beast

at last it was too late and she was taken there from me
a voice there in the darkness said "her love was lost on thee"
I knew just what I was this twisted mass of flesh and bone
I'm just a monster left to wander in the wilderness alone

well I know and I see
fire and hail falling right through me
and I know in the end
I'll die the day I never see her again

I just wanna see her again
I just wanna sleep with her again
I just wanna see her again
