Devil Red Blues

Let me tell you about a pretty girl, she broke my heart today
Let me tell you about a pretty girl, she broke my heart today
If you see a red haired woman, you're better off running away

She’s crazy like a hoot owl, she’ll tempt you like a garden snake
She’s crazy like a hoot owl, she’ll tempt you like a garden snake
She’ll grab you by the throat pull your teeth out and beat you till you break

It’s dangerous to love her, I seen her bite the head off of a dove
It’s dangerous to love her, I seen her bite the head off of a dove
She takes her vodka with her whiskey, and carries a gun when she’s making love

She’s something so unnatural, she comes right from the pits of hell
She’s something so unnatural, she comes right from the pits of hell
At first I thought she was an angel, turns out I didn’t know all to well

She put my back to the cold wall, held my tongue, hissed in my ear
In that moment she had me, held me for a thousands years
She put my back to the cold wall, held my tongue, hissed in my ear
In that moment she had me, lord she held me for a thousands years

Now, Red is the Devils color, your hair whips around like Satan’s flames
Now, Red is the Devils color, your hair whips around like Satan’s flames
But your sinning’s why I love you, no, nothing in heaven can rock me quite the same
