lyrics

The devil went down to Nashville
He was looking for a record deal
He had some damn fine songs on acoustic guitar
and a friend Earl that played lap steel
We first met at a roadhouse bar
Right after they hit town
They spent their money on one way tickets
So I bought us a couple rounds

The Devil kept on talking bout
How he was gonna have it made
All of his boys from his hair metal years
Were selling country music these day
He talked slick and I was young
So it didn't take to long
Before I knew the words to every single one
Of the devil's songs

We had use some damn fine times
Down in Tennessee
We was gonna be big stars
Earl, The Devil, and Me

We hit the town and played some shows
Started to build a crowd
Everyone loved to come and see the devil play his music loud
He called his boys so they could come down
And see his brand new game
The devil was about to find out that everything had changed

His boys got sick of putting up
With artists and their needs
Egos, wives, and cocaine habits
Had gotten in the way of their greed
So they got them a team of writers
and they let those fuckers go
They wrote all the songs that you hear today
On country radio
They told the Devil and I can't say that he took it very well
He said "Motherfucker, I wouldn't play this lousy shit in hell"
He shook his head and stomped his feet and said
"Have I just been told that today is the day that the Devil
can't sell away his soul?"

We had use some damn fine times
Down in Tennessee
We was gonna be big stars
Earl, The Devil, and Me

The devil moved off to Norway
To start a black metal band
He was putting all his shit in storage
So I offered to lend him a hand
We finished up and said goodbye
And he thanked me for all of my help
He said "Son, there's some things that I see in you that remind me of myself"
I asked him if I could keep his songs and this here guitar
He said "Go right ahead but remember boy they won't get you very far"
"Go right ahead but remember boy they won't get you very far"

We had use some damn fine times
Down in Tennessee
We was gonna be big stars
Earl, The Devil, and Me
