  1. Wicked Me

Lyrics

I'm standing in the doorway
I hear the radio play
My baby's in the kitchen
She's all sunlight and golden rays
The kids in the neighbor's yard
outside play and laugh
they don't even notice
as the day slips past

and deep in my heart
there's a devil scratchin'
i close my eyes
and pray this feelin' passes
sweet angel of mercy
won't you deliver me
from the hands of the wicked
Wicked Me

Back in school the other kids
they would mock and laugh
I was a little out of step
a little loud and fat
the boys would fight
and the girls would tease
I always told my Ma
'Ma, it doesn't bother me'

Yeah but deep in my heart
there's a devil scratchin'
I just close my eyes
and pray this feelin' passes
Sweet angel of mercy
won't you deliver me
from the hands of the wicked
Wicked Me

I've got an alright job
no real friends there
a lot of people with a lot of questions
who will tell me they care
we've got a regular bar
some nights I'll go out with the guys
I could tell you all their names
but I couldn't tell you about their lives

Deep in my heart
there's a devil scratchin'
I just close my eyes and pray this feelin' passes
sweet angel of mercy
won't you deliver me
from the hands of the wicked
Wicked Me

In the evening sky
I feel my heart grow black
there's a thunder rollin' in
it's about to crack
I feel those unholy spirits
circling 'round my head
So i shut off the light
and go on back to bed

Yeah but deep in my heart
there's a devil scratchin'
I just close my eyes, fold my hands
and pray that it passes
Sweet JESUS of mercy
won't you deliver me
from the hands of the wicked
Wicked Me
