​Right Behind Me

This song is by John Mellencamp and appears on the album No Better Than This (2010).

This time I'm leavin'
And I ain't-a kiddin'
Walkin' out the door
For evermore
You see the devil
He's right behind me
Whistling in my ear
It's time to go
You know the devil
He thinks he's got me
But he ain't got me
No

Goin' to get my baby
She in Chicago
Wrapped up with some stranger
Every afternoon
She says I don't care
Nothin' about her
But I gotsta tell her
I still do
You know the devil
He thinks he's got her
But he ain't got her
No

I know Jesus
And I know the devil
They're both inside of me
All the time
This ain't no picnic
That I'm livin'
Just a resting place
Before it's time to go
You see the devil
He thinks he's got me
But he ain't got me
No

You see the devil
He thinks he's got me
But he ain't got me
No
No, no, no, no, no

This time I'm leavin'
I ain't a-kiddin'
