I can head for the mountain or sail out to sea
Or hang out here in the hill country
If you dance with the devil he’ll dance right back
Ol’ Doc Dupuy told me that

But nobody got a hold on me
Nobody got a hold on me
Gonna get what I need eventually
Nobody got a hold on me

It’s a crying shame what we gotta do
In the land of plenty for the few
But we got guns and rock n roll
Honky-Tonks and Muscle Shoals

There was once was a time when we could survive
With crops in the field and homemade wine
It’s a wicked world we’re living in
Fighting these wars over and over again
