lyrics

Devil Moon
(Henzerling/Schwarze)

I wonder how it came to be
That fortune should betray a man like me

Deep river could not wash me clean
I cried my life to be redeemed

And then I saw the old man through the haze
At the water's edge the ferryman he turned to me his gaze

Chorus:
Devil Moon - why have you come for me so soon
To steal away my life and fortune
Take me 'cross the water I'm a lamb that's ripe for slaughter
And I've been waiting for you too
All night long

Oh, ferryman I need a ride
(Can ya) take me to the other side? (Take me cross the water)

Ask me, can I pay the fare?
My soul the price to take me there (Take me cross the water)

So we sail into the night
To a wistful melody until we're floating out of sight

Chorus:

Around my neck the water's brown
and greedy arms they try to pull me down

The murky depths is where I'll lie
'neath devil Moon who laughs at me on high

Feel no earthly presence here
As the muddy waters take me and never shed a tear.
