"Sold My Soul" as written by and Willy Mason....
Well, do you say
Nobody hears me when I pray.
And if you say
I just don't care to live past what's today.
And if you say
Oh, brother last night I prayed
Your preacher isn't preaching at home.

And if you say
Nobody hears me when I cry.
And if you say
Well I just don't understand why.
And if you say
I just can't take it, I'm saying goodbye.

When you're walking
It's a heavy, heavy load.
To make the load lighter
Sing

Sold my soul
At the bottom of the hill.
The demons there
They shaved my hair

And made me take their pills.
My cold soul
Is at the bottom of the hill.
Oh I should have walked on by

Let her cry
And only drank my fill.

Some men they say
There is more to us than Is known.
Some ladies say
Well there's some things we're not shown.

All people say
You're stepping on our homes.
And your footprints
Endeavors, never told.
But still we'll sing.

Sold my soul
At the bottom of the hill.
The demons there
They shaved my hair

And made me take their pills.
My cold soul
Is at the bottom of the hill.
Oh I should have walked on by

Let her cry
And only drank my fill.

    General CommentI cannot believe that there a so little people commenting on Willy's songs.
    You've got to love this song, even though it's not your average love story.

    I'm guessing this particular song is about someone who's lost everything he stood for and is extremely pessimistic about life and the world in general, and it's all because he 'sold his soul' (probably for a lady) and now he regrets ever doing so, because it didn't quite work out the way he expected it would. "I should have walked on by, let her cry, and only drank my fill"
    Basically: he got into something without giving it any thought and in the end all he accomplished was making things worse then they already were.
    But that's just my interpretation.
