Yes sir I went down down down
to the devil's nest on the river banks
to pay my respects
no no no I did not linger long
just long enough to sing this song

goodbye, goodnight
I'm leaving you
for a better life
goodbye, don't cry
I'm leaving you
for a better life

So I ran back back back
into my mother's arms
to tell her how I had turned it around
all this talk of the Holy Ghost
where he lives but mamma,
where did he go

Goodbye, goodnight
he'll still be here in the morning light
goodnight, close your eyes
he'll still be here in the morning light

all you haters are gonna learn how to love
and all you lovers are gonna hold them up
all beware the snake and the wolf
creepin' around they're gonna get
what is yours

So I went back back back
to the river banks
to dip my head and say my thanks
all the sinners in their winter coats
grabbing out for that holy ghost have said

Goodbye, goodnight
we'll see you in the afterlife
goodbye, don't cry
he's coming back when the time is right
