Lynyrd Skynyrd Devil In The Bottle' Lyrics

Last updated:

(Gary Rossington - Dale Krantz Rossington - Johnny VanZant)

Well, there's a devil in the bottle, staring straight at me
Daring me to reach out, but I know he's testing me
If I take just one sip, I become that devil's son
Act a fool, sell my soul before God and everyone
Oh Lord, I know, I only hurt the ones I love

I'm walkin' down this dead end road, all alone and by myself
Wish I could blame the whiskey, but I can only blame myself
Running out of chances, and Lord that's such a crime
I got to find the answer before I lose my mind
Oh Lord its a cryin shame, oh Lord I've caused so much pain
I only hurt the ones I love

There's a devil in a bottle that just won't let me be
So many times I've been hurtin' my soul and family
But I got free on the day I fought the
Devil in the bottle

The next time that ol' devil tries to get the best of me
I'll smash that bottle against the wall and know I'm finally free
There's a devil in a bottle that just won't let me be
There's so many times I let him hurt me
I got free the day I fought the
Devil in the bottle
Devil in the bottle
Devil in the bottle
