Let the devil make work for my idle hands
Let the devil make work for my idle hands
For I'm never such trouble as when I'm making plans
So let the devil make work for my idle hands

Let the devil find a place for these restless bones
Let the devil find a place for these restless bones
Stop me swinging back and forth between the ones I already know
Let the devil find a place for these restless, restless bones

I think he could love me right if I could keep him of my mind
Freed my hands and feed my eyes and keep me occupied
I think he could do me good if I could do this like I should
Freed my hands and feed my eyes and keep me occupied

No, you know I tried to wait
I tried to wait, I do
Patience is as patience does
It's the slowest start, but you ...

I think he could love me hard if I can keep him of my mind
Freed my hands and feed my eyes and keep me entertained
I think he could do me good if I could do this like I should
Freed my hands and feed my eyes and keep me entertained

Boy, you know I tried to wait, I tried to wait
I tried and I tried
Lord, such time, such time he taste
Oh lord, he taste his time, time

Let the devil make work for my idle hands
Let the devil make work for my idle hands
For I'm never such trouble as when I'm making plans
So let the devil make work for my idle hands

Let the devil teach his tunes to my tasteless tongue
Let the devil teach his tunes to my tasteless tongue
I will make like Robert Johnson, swap the truth out for a song
Let the devil teach his tunes to my tasteless, tasteless tongue
