HOME BENEATH DEVILíS TRAIL


WORDS & MUSIC: HANKĒHOLY ROLLERĒ RAY
COPYRIGHT CONTROL, 1994


The air is full of fire pouring out of the clouds
That burns each poor, poor soul that dares to walk the ground
The doorway to the land of Satan where all doomed sinners wail
Waits right next to my home that lies beneath the devilís trail 2x

 

I had a loving wife in Tennessee her name was Hannah Lee
The first year of our marriage we spent so happily
But each time I was on the road she started playing Ďround
So folks would point and laugh at me each time I took a walk downtown 2x

 

I clearly do remember that fatal Saturday
The day my world came tumbling down and my mind walked away
When I came home to soon and found my sweetheart Hannah Lee
Was sharing drinks and making love to a guy who wasnít me 2x

 

I screamed out loud and with that wild, wild hate there deep inside
I grabbed a nine pound hammer and with that hammer I took her life
Her lover begged and pleaded, kissed my feet just to let him go
But all I could feel was that evil fire burning in my soul 2x

 

They took me to a jailhouse and locked me in a cell
The jailor looked at me and said: youíll surely go to hell
I got down on my knees and prayed the lord my soul to save
When I felt that rope around my neck I knew Iíd sealed my fate 2x

 

They say good guys go where cool waters flow in heaven way up high
But where Iíve gone no waters flow and my throatís burned out dry
The doorway to the land of Satan where all doomed sinners wail
Waits right next to my home that lies beneath the devilís trail 3x
