Lyrics

I’ve been the mistress of the devil
Ever since you came around
And I’ve been in and outta trouble
And it’s all around the town

When you told me you’d never leave me
You were nowhere to be found
Now I’m standin’ on the steel bridge
Lookin’ up and down here for a fight

And there’s a whiskey river flowin’
Let it carry me away into the night
Only a soldier can save me
But there’s no soldier in sight

You left me stranded on the drawbridge again
I’m tryin’ to find a way but you won’t let me in
If this was made of wood I’d burn the whole thing down
Maybe you might notice me when I’m not around

You left me stranded on the drawbridge again
I’m tryin’ to find a way but you won’t let me in
If this was made of wood I’d burn the whole thing down
Maybe you might notice me when I’m not around

So I’m the mistress of the devil
And it was all part of the plan
And I must stay with him forever
Oh, he’s the only one who understands

When I needed someone to save me
Oh, he was the only one lovin’ man
