I’m gonna send the devil runnin’ far away from my home
I’m gonna send the devil runnin’ far away from my home
I won’t be sad when he leave me, but I’ll be oh so alone

I’m gonna keep my pistol, gonna keep my whiskey too
I’m gonna keep my pistol, gonna keep all my whiskey too
Cuz without that devil, don’t know what I’m gonna do

Run devil run, run on away from me
Run devil run, run on away from me
Shake the grave dust off my shoes,
Clap my hands an’ I’ll be free

Gotta keep the devil runnin’
Can’t let him ride with me no more
Gotta keep the devil runnin’
Can’t let him ride with me no more
Cuz when the devil gets to jumpin’
I always wake up on the floor

Run devil run, run on away from me
Run devil run, run on away from me
Shake the grave dust off my shoes,
Clap my hands an’ I’ll be free
