Peace With the Devil

© 2021 CS Taber

I always knew, you a liar

When you sang at my bed

And the thorns, the green briar

You were there when I bled

 

And I made you, crown of daisies

That you wore to my death

And we worshipped with the crazies

As I laughed my last breath

 

So you claimed thirty silver

And you sold me for a score

I will make my peace with the devil

With the angels you will war

 

There's a highway, your digression

The road climbs, rocky end

If you ask my true confession

t'would be easier to descend

 

So you claimed thirty silver

And you sold me for a score

I will make my peace with the devil

With the angels you will war

 

I will not be your believer

So I'll save the heartache

I will not praise your deceiver

Grifter's faith, your mistake

 

So you claimed thirty silver

And you sold me for a score

And I will make my peace with the devil

With the angels you will war

 

I will make peace with the devil

She will know me by my name

In her freedom I will revel

And the silver she will claim
