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

Skeletons in closets
Ghosts underneath the bed
They hide out in pictures
In words, better left unsaid
Hang around like perfume
And home in like an ancient melody
When I'm not chasin' demons
There's demons chasin' me

There's things that I can't leave alone
Cause they won't leave me alone
Cause what I want ain't what I need
Still I reach for the things I crave
Then I try to run away
Baby I'm afraid of bein' free
Cause when I'm not chasin' demons
There's demons chasin' me

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

There's things that 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
Then I try to run away
Am I afraid of bein' free? (You tell me)
Cause when I'm not chasin' demons
There's demons chasin' me

When I'm not chasin demons
There's demons chasin' me
There's demons chasin' me
There's demons chasin' me
When I'm not chasin demons
There's demons chasin' me
There's demons chasin' me
Demon's chasin' me
There's demons chasin' me
When I'm not chasin demons
There's demons chasin' me

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

    Alcohol
    Women
    Cigarettes/other smokable items

    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.
