[Chorus]
Run devil run, the angels having fun
Making winners out of sinners better leave before it's done
When he gets through, he'll be coming after you
Listen what I'm saying to you Run
Run Devil Run

By a swamp in Alabama in the cold in the damp
Sitting reading by the light of a kerosene lamp
Lives a holly roller with a mission on her mind
Got to spread the word to anybody she can find
You can hear her screaming any time in night or day
This is what she says to keep the demons away

[Chorus]

Her brother and her sister said that she brought them down
Stepping on the bus that was heading to town
There they started drinking, they got into a fight
The sheriff introduced them to the jail house for a night
When the holy roller came to town to pay the bail
This is what she sang as she was leaving the jail

[Chorus]

Well by the middle of the summer they were back in the shack
Picking cotton for a living keep 'em on the right track
Visiting the nieghbours trying to spread the good news
Singing gospel music with a hint of the blues
All of them determined to deliver the goods
Now you you hear the music coming out on the woods

[Chorus]

Ah you'd better Run . . . Run Devil Run
You better Run . . . Run Devil Run
