I fought the devil last night I did
I fought the devil and won
I chased it into the deep night
I chased him into the ground.
No one told me it would be this hard
no body told it would feel so good.
The devil tried to scare me last night
he tried to get me on my knees
It tried to distract me
by putting death in front of me.
But I kept looking into the light
so he couldn't get me.
When I was finished it felt so good
that I stood at the door and breathed
at the door where I cut him down
I stood and I paused
in relief and thought...
I fought the devil just now and won
I cried with all of my heart.
