THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND lyrics - Sailin' 'Cross The Devil's Sea

THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND
"Sailin' 'Cross The Devil's Sea"

Lately I don't know where I went wrong
But the spell of that pretty young girl is far too strong
Between her fine perfume and angel face
My whole world became another place

The dark side of her intelligence was so strong
Soon there'll be no difference in right or wrong
Next thing I know I had a key that unlocked her door
I could not wait to hear the siren song

The beginning of the end of my happy home
Sailin', sailing 'cross the devil's sea, oh
Too blind in love, too blind to see

Heard them say the paybacks double-fold
Just can't seem to remember who I bought and sold
I'll probably still be here when you come around next year
Trying to climb from this deep dark hole

I'll be damned if I just don't feel I'm growin' old
Sailing, sailing 'cross the devil's sea, oh
Too blind in love, too blind to see

'Cause she was evil than evil, slippery like a fox
Set me up with pain and woe and I swear it won't seem to stop
If I could just remove her hook deep from within my soul
Swear I'll leave and not come back, just let me out that door

Sailin', sailing 'cross the devil's sea, oh
Too blind in love, too blind to see
