"By The Devil I Was Tempted" as written by and Doug Fleet Guy Fletcher....
I've done a lot of laughing
A little bit of crying
I've been a lot of places
And made a mess of friends
Got wedded to the whisky
Should've been a good woman
If I could re-live my days
Changing my ways
I'd not touch' a drop again

By the devil I was tempted
And many jugs I've emptied
I felt so rejected
I didn't wanna go astray
Half my life has been awasted
By the booze I've tasted
But the demon I have faced it
And sent him on his way

I hope I'll be forgiven
For all my bad livin'
I had to make some changes
'Fore he got me in the end
Now I've got a pretty woman
She gives me good lovin'
I can 't re-live all my days in a different way
But I won't go astray again

By the devil I was tempted
And many jugs I've emptied
I felt so rejected
I didn't wanna go astray
Half my life has been awasted
By the booze I've tasted
But the demon I have faced it
And sent him on his way
