"Way Down in the Hole" as written by and Tom Waits....
When you walk through the garden
You gotta watch your back
Well I beg your pardon
Walk the straight and narrow track
If you walk with Jesus
He's gonna save your soul
You gotta keep the devil
Way down in the hole

He's got the fire and the fury
At his command
Well you don't have to worry
If you hold on to Jesus' hand
We'll all be safe from Satan
When the thunder rolls
Just gotta help me keep the devil
Way down in the hole

All the angels sing
'Bout Jesus' mighty sword
And they'll shield you with their wings
And keep you close to the Lord
Don't pay heed to temptation
For his hands are so cold
You gotta help me keep the devil
Way down in the hole

Way down in the hole
Way down in the hole
Way down in the hole
Way down in the hole

(In the bottom of a hole)

    My InterpretationMy Friend Steve does a brilliant version of Tom Waits' The Wire Cover Way Down in Hole but Copyright Infringement is an issue we must Fight. Just like Tom Waits, Steve Earle is a writer Fighting for Artists' Rights! Never Question Democracy!
