devil by his side lyrics – jerry cantrell

clear on the road tonight
headlamps shine on the one-way signs
i try to clear my head
of thoughts better left unsaid

runnin’ down an old elusive high
one more time

the wind upon my face
no one here for to block my way
i wake the setting sun
bullet shot by a thoughtful gun

runnin’ down an old elusive high
did i lose you
oh friend of mine
is it in your hardened heart to
trust me one more time
see, i’m tryin’ to shake that same
devil from my side
always watchin’ me, yeah
laughing while i cry
while i cry
gunnin’ down an old elusive high
one more time

clear on the road tonight
headlamps shine on the mileage signs
not much further to go
i laugh and i’m almost home

gunnin’ down an old elusive high
did i lose you
oh friend of mine
is it in your hardened heart to
trust me one more time
see, i’m tryin’ to shake that old
devil from my side
always taunting me, yeah
laughing while i cry
while i cry
runnin’ down an old elusive high
one more time
