Fiddler’s Green – Devil’s Dozen Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’ve dealt with the devil
I went down to hell
Left with nothing
Had nothing to lose
I’ve played with some broads
Had nothing to give
Got only some cigs and some booze
I’ve travelled the highways
I’ve walked down the line
And here is one thing I have learned
When you climb up a mountain
Fly close to the sun
Before long you’re gonna get burned
[Chorus]
I’m crying ’bout my dirty mess
Been crying out loud since
My darling’s gone ’cause I confessed
The devil’s thirteen sins
[Verse 2]
Got into some trouble
Been in a few fights
I ran with some bad company
With so many misfits
On so many nights
It’s all just a bad memory
But when I woke up
Still had beer in my cup
And a hell of a nasty hangover
Reality bites
As she enters the room
God help me I wish I was sober
[Chorus]
I’m crying ’bout my dirty mess
Been crying out loud since
My darling’s gone ’cause I confessed
The devil’s thirteen sins
[Chorus]
I’m crying ’bout my dirty mess
Been crying out loud since
My darling’s gone ’cause I confessed
The devil’s thirteen sins
[Bridge]
Thirteen sins
No one wins
Can’t get them
Outta my mind
Such regret
Can’t forget
About my horrible crimes
‘Cause every second, every minute
Every hour it’s hanging over my head
Every second, every minute
Every hour till the day that I’m dead
[Verse 3]
I did one for the money
And two for the show
Three for some good rock’n’roll
I did four on the floor
And took five in one toke
Did six from the depth of my soul
Did seven in heaven
And eight down in hell
Did nine in the Garden of Eden
Then ten and eleven
And twelve in a row
The last one without any reason
[Chorus]
I’m crying ’bout my dirty mess
Been crying out loud since
My darling’s gone ’cause I confessed
The devil’s thirteen sins
[Chorus]
I’m crying ’bout my dirty mess
Been crying out loud since
My darling’s gone ’cause I confessed
The devil’s thirteen sins
[Outro]
The devil’ dozen’s haunting me
May the devil never win
