Half of my blood is Cain's blood
Half of my blood is Abel's
One eye looks to Heaven
One eye looks for trouble

Sweet mother, she sang in the Sunday choir
On her head was a halo, she spoke brimstone and fire
Daddy lived by the bottle, Daddy died by the barn
Well, he froze one night, Mama said "Serves him right"
"The devil can keep him warm"

(Repeat Chorus)

Guess I always saw myself as a simple man
But there's a man in the mirror I don't understand
Every day I fight it, but I know down deep
It's the secrets I've been keeping
Rising from their sleep

(Repeat Chorus)

There's an angel and a devil playing tug of war with my soul
The battle rages on each and every day
It's all I can do just to try to maintain control
My one and only hope is get on my knees and pray

(Repeat Chorus)
