when the devil gets the best of me lyrics – big & rich

sometimes whiskey, sometimes pills
the silly things i need to get my thrills
sometimes women are like cocaine
got to have ’em more and more every day

[chorus:]
yeah the man in the mirror ain’t no man like i ought to be
tell me why can’t i see
when the devil gets the best of me

i’ve left heartaches thought they’d mend
i know how to lose some real good friends
i get angry, i stay mad
can’t get happy with this life i have

[chorus:]
yeah the man in the mirror ain’t no man like i ought to be
tell me why can’t i see
when the devil gets the best of me

now i’m a little wiser than i was back then
but still i’m stumblin’ every day
trying to walk a little straighter
trying to find a way to forgive

[chorus:]
yeah the man in the mirror ain’t no man like i ought to be
tell me why can’t i see
when the devil gets the best of me

[chorus:]
yeah the man in the mirror ain’t no man like i ought to be
tell me why can’t i see
when the devil gets the best of me

tell me why can’t i see
when the devil gets the best of me
