Deep in the heart of Texas
Where the stars are big and bright
Is where I crashed my car
And I should have lost my life
I shook the hand of my maker
I shook the hand of Christ
Shook it with my left hand
And I signed the Devil's contract with my right

Well, I might not look like much to you
But in my youth I could show you a thing or two
And if I find that blond girl
And if I get my way
I'll be riding that new Cadillac
From Austin to L.A.

So if you see the Devil
And he's come to collect
Tell him he will never find me
For I'm climbing Jacob's Ladder out of Texas to the West
Tell him he will never find me
For I'm climbing Jacob's Ladder out of Texas to the West
Tell him he is chasing shadows
For I'm climbing Jacob's Ladder out of Texas to the West

My dad says I'm just like the dogs
When I get out in that sun
Roll around in that mud
Come home all covered in blood
God knows just what I've done

So you forget this story I've told you
I'll forget to say my prayers
And if you see God in Heaven
Tell him General Lee is weeping, no one cares
And if you see God in Heaven
Tell him General Lee is weeping, no one cares
And if you see God in Heaven
Tell him General Lee is weeping, no one cares
And if you see God in Heaven
Tell him I'm coming with a vengeance
Tell him I don't need his acceptance
Tell him General Lee is weeping, no one cares
No one cares
