The old devils are at it again
Who knows what they'll do
It's true right now like it was back then
The old devils are at it again
From behind these bars the view don't change
Desperation, death, and despair
From what little I hear of the outside world
Well, it's not too different out there
And they tell me there's a war without no end

The old devils are at it again
They die by the millions, children, women, and men
The old devils are at it again
When I say devil, you know who I mean
These animals in the dark
Malicious politicians with nefarious schemes
Charlatans and crooked cops
The moonshine still gives you five to ten

The old devils are at it again
Stripes on your back and a ball and chain
The old devils are at it again
Two men stare out of prison bars
Wondering what got them here
One saw mud but the other saw stars
Praying that the end is near
Well, the billboard outside says, "Confess your sins"
The old devils are at it again
I guess I will confess that I've been suffering

The old devils are at it again
I said, the old devils are at it again
Who knows what they'll do
And it's true right now like it was back then
The old devils are at it again
I said, the old devils are at it again
Oh, oh . . .
