"Daddy And The Devil" as written by Chuck Jones, Chuck Cannon and Tom Bukovac....
Daddy and the devil walk side by side...
Me and mama, we tried to hide.
He couldn’t stay sober if he tried...
Daddy and the devil walked side by side.

The devil had a hold on daddy’s hand...
He never had a straight and narrow plan.
Down a dark and deadend road they ran...
The devil had a hold on daddy’s hand.

(Chorus)
He took his soul and he took his pride...
But the devil still ain’t satisfied.
We all cried the day he died...
Daddy and the devil walked side by side.


Daddy and the devil were the best of friends...
We all know that story’s end.
But it’s the son who pays for the father’s sins...
Daddy and the devil were the best of friends.

(Chorus)
He took his soul and he took his pride...
But the devil still ain’t satisfied.
We all cried the day he died...
Daddy and the devil walked side by side.


Years gone by and I’m a full grown man...
It took a lot of living to understand....
How a good man falls for the devil’s plans.
The devil had a hold on daddy’s hand.

(Chorus)
He took his soul and he took his pride...
Oh, but the devil still ain’t satisfied.
And we all cried the day he died...
Daddy and the devil walked side by side.
Daddy and the devil walked side by side.
