angels and devils lyrics – mama sweet

one summer evening
on a back porch in oklahoma
thought about my short life
and the works of my hand

then that same old feeling
for as long as i remember
standing on the outside just trying to get in

sometimes i feel low
sometimes i feel down
but them angels and devils make sure that i’m always around

thought about a lost love
in the hills out in albuquerque
oh, how the one did hurt me
but somehow i got by

then i heard a whisper
on the winds that blew around me
said i won’t live forever son
but i will never die

sometimes i feel low
sometimes i feel down
but them angels and devils make sure that i’m always around

i recall the wise man
on the banks of a muddy river
p*ssing me my wineskin on warm july day
said son i’ve lived a hard one
but there’s one thing you must remember
it ain’t the road that will get you
it’s the stops along the way

sometimes i feel low
sometimes i feel down
but them angels and devils make sure that i’m always around
