The Way I'm Livin' lyrics

I met the devil on the side of the road one day
He said “how do you do?”
I said it’s hard to say

So he smiled at me with a wicked grin
He reached into his coat and then

He gave me a bottle full of something sweet
Said I’ll fill it up every time we meet

Oh mama the way that I’m livin
Lyin’ and a sinnin’ and I just change
Oh mama the way that I’m livin
If I ever get to heaven it’s a doggone shame

One little drop is all it took
To get my name in his book
Now I sleep all day and I’m out all night
And I can’t tell wrong from right
You know I’d change if I could
But being bad, it feels so good

Oh mama the way that I’m livin
Lyin and a sinnin and I just change
Oh mama the way that I’m livin
If I ever get to heaven it’s a doggone shame

On the day I die when they lay me down
I know where my soul is bound
And don’t you cry, and don’t you weep
Cause it’s too late to rescue me
If you see the devil com in your way
Get down on your knees
And start to pray

Oh mama the way that I’m livin
Lyin and a sinnin and I just change
Oh mama the way that I’m livin
If I ever get to heaven it’s a doggone shame
