Inspired by winter, a new (old) guitar, and some whiskey.

lyrics

the devil's in the bottle, lord
the devil's in my soul
the devil's in the bottle
and that bottle's getting old
yeah that bottle's getting old

I'm praying for salvation
praying to be saved
praying for salvation searching for
a better way
searching for a better way

I hope my angel's near
I hope she's flying by
hope my angel's near
'cause judgment day is nigh
judgment day is nigh

I'm vowing to hold steady
trying to be strong
vowing to hold steady
make right from all the wrong
make right from all this wrong

'cause the devil's in the bottle, lord
the devil's in my soul
the devil's in the bottle
and that bottle's getting old
yeah that bottle's getting old

gotta send those ghosts away
make them leave my house
send those ghosts away
I've got to break them out
gotta break them out

or I won't be here for long
I'm slipping off dry land
won't be here for long
those demons grabbed my hand yeah
the demons grabbed my hand

and the devil's in the bottle
the devil's in my soul
the devil's in the bottle and that
bottle's getting old
that bottle's getting old
