"Demons" as written by Jon Randall and Bill Anderson....
Sometimes they're in a bottle
Sometimes a pair of high heal shoes
Some come rolled in paper
Some have six strings and only play the blues
Once you meet the devil
There's no way he'll let you be
When I'm not chasing demons
There's demons chasing me

Skeletons in closets
Ghost underneath the bed
They hide out in pictures
And in words better left unsaid
They hang around like perfume
And haunt me like an ancient melody
When I'm not chasing demons
There's demons chasing me

[Chorus:]
There's things I can?t leave alone
'Cause they won't leave me alone
What I want ain't what I need
Still I reach for the things I crave
Better try to runaway
Maybe I'm afraid of being free
When I'm not chasing demons
There's demons chasing me

So roll one up and light it
Pickup my old guitar
I'm playing crossroads
Drinkin' whiskey from the mason jar
There's heartache at my front door
Says she needs my company
When I'm not chasing demons
There's demons chasing me

[Chorus]

When I'm not chasing demons
There's demons chasing me

There's demons chasing me
There's demons chasing me

When I'm not chasing demons
There's demons chasing me

There's demons chasing me
There's demons chasing me
There's demons chasing me
There's demons chasing me

When I'm not chasing demons
There's demons chasing me

    Song MeaningWhen he isn't chasing demons, they come for him.

    Alcohol
    Women
    Cigarettes/other smokable items
    Guitars

    Once you have met the addiction (devil) there is no way it is going to let you be.

    "There's things that I can't leave alone
    Cause they won't leave me alone
    What I want ain't what I need"
    Classic sign of an addiction.
