Lyric The Devil Goes Fishin


(Pat Bunch/Doug Johnson)

Wake up honey let me talk to you
I had a dream last night that just can t come true
About a man and a woman stuck right in the middle of heaven and you know where
I hate to say they looked a lot like us
When I saw em fight and I heard em fuss
And I woke up with a premonition
We just best beware

The devil goes fishin in trouble water
He ll come callin if we don t bother
To make things right and love the way it s supposed to be
There s an angel sittin on our right shoulder
But she won t stay there if it gets much colder
We better watch out or it ll get a lot hotter
Cause the devil goes fishin in troubled water

There are times we cross the line and let selfishness and foolish pride
Leave us weak and make a big ol target out of you and me
But sweet forgiveness can fix it all
And add another rock to that mighty wall
That keeps the harsh winds out and helps to calm that mean ol ranging sea

The devil goes fishin in trouble water
He ll come callin if we don t bother
To make things right and love the way it s supposed to be
There s an angel sittin on our right shoulder
But she won t stay there if it gets much colder
We better watch out or it ll get a lot hotter
Cause the devil goes fishin in troubled water

So let s put up a posted sign
That says no fishin in your heart and mine
Trespassers best beware
Cause there s a big ol love in there

The devil goes fishin in trouble water
He ll come callin if we don t bother
To make things right and love the way it s supposed to be
There s an angel sittin on our right shoulder
But she won t stay there if it gets much colder
We better watch out or it ll get a lot hotter
Cause the devil goes fishin in troubled water

The devil goes fishin in trouble water
He ll come callin if we don t bother
To make things right and love the way it s supposed to be
There s an angel sittin on our right shoulder
But she won t stay there if it gets much colder
We better watch out or it ll get a lot hotter
Cause the devil goes fishin in troubled water
