    I am not a bum sir
I’m on a journey for my soul
And I’ll milk your cow and love your wife
If you pay me in real gold

And when the show is over
I’ll take off down the road
Before you shoot me in the back
My feet beating on the stones

Lord, Lord help me
I’m on a journey for my soul
I’m just another refuge along the Devils road

Ever since I can remember
I’ve had these walking blues
And my mamma told me years ago
“Son, it’s the Devils road for you”

So I set out for the horizon
I never did look back
My mamma died alone one night
Of a broken heart attack

Lord, Lord help me
I’m on a journey for my soul
I’m just another refuge along the devils road

I’ll never be a rich man, I’ll never have a wife
I’ve left a hundred women, crying in the night

I’m always gone by morning
I always go alone
I’m just another refuge
Along the Devils road

Lord, Lord help me
I’m on a journey for my soul
I’m just another refuge along the devils road
