"Dear John Letter (to the devil)" as written by and Keith Gordon Green....
Oh I used to love you
But now that's hard to do
'Cause I got some information
'Bout the evil things at night that you do
Now the whole thing is through (we're through)
Oh, you're such a devil
How'd you get me to believe you were true?
Oh, my momma warned me
And how my daddy cried
The day I left my home

You said you'd always keep me satisfied
But, oh, how you lied (you lied)
Well, I should have heard my mama's words
But then I guess I had too much pride (original sin)
I used to lie awake at night
And see your face on the ceilin'
What a bad a feelin' I have
When I think of how you almost got me
In the ways of the world
In the ways of the world

My so-called friends said I misjudged you
My anger's all in vain
But I'm afraid you got to them
Before I had a chance to explain
And it caused me such pain (ouch!)
'Cause they were such good friends of mine
But now you've got them playin' your game (you creep)
Well, I believe in Jesus
And what he said he's gonna do
He'll put an apple in your lyin' mouth
And cook you in a sulfer stew
One that'll never be through
(Is it soup yet? No)

Ah, but if he hadn't rescued me
Then I'd be down there cookin' too
Oh, if Jesus hadn't rescued me
Then I'd be cookin' right next to you
I used to lie awake at night
And see your face on the ceilin'
What a great feelin' I have
When I think of how you're gonna get yours
At the end of the world
At the end of the world
Oh, at the end of the world
