Devil's Stomp

This song is by Badlands and appears on the album Badlands (1989).

I needed time to think things over
To heal my soul and ease the pain
And through a glass, a revelation
I could swear I heard the darkness call my name

Imagination's running for too long, oh yeah
The mind we lost can read the senses wrong

I need a shot of realization
I can't believe the things I've seen
'Cause down the bar sat the devil man
As he turned around and smiled he said to me

He said, hey boy, I know what you're looking for
It feels so good to be so bad
Just take a chance, step through my open door

Lord

Now boy, I know you're oh so young and the whole world shines in front of you
But I can give you anything you want and I'll make it so easy for you

All I know is what my mama told me
All I know is what she said
When Beelzebub is sneakin' up on you
You best be dancin' on his head, yeah

Lord, do the devil's stomp

Oh, he made it sound so good stealin' my soul every way
The devil's price hangs on my soul throw a pocket full of gold his way

All I know is what my mama told me
All I know is what she said
When Beelzebub is sneakin' up on you
You best be dancin' on his head, yeah

Lord, do the devil's stomp

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, words that'll shimmer like the moonlight house
Oh, feels so good, you know to be so bad
You know, been holding back, baby, for much too long
And I feel it creepin' right in my bones
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, Lord

Lord, do the devil's stomp
Do it
