The Devil Wears a Suit and Tie

This song is by Colter Wall and appears on the album Imaginary Appalachia (2015).

Well, Reverend, Reverend please come quick
'Cause I've got something to admit
I met a man out in the sticks, a good old mess
He drove a series 10 Cadillac and wore a cigar on his lip

Don't you know the devil wears a suit and tie
I saw him driving down the 61 in early July
White as a cotton field and sharp as a knife
I heard him howling as he passed me by

And he said, "I know you, I know you young man
I know you by the state of your hands
You're a six-string picker, just as I am
Let me learn you something I know a few turns to make all the girls dance"

Don't you know the devil wears a suit and tie
I saw him driving down the 61 in early July
White as a cotton field and sharp as a knife
I heard him howling as he passed me by

Oh foolish, foolish was I
Damn, my foolish eyes
'Cause that man's lessons
Had a price, oh sweet price
My sweet soul, everlasting
My very own eternal life

Don't you know that the devil wears a suit and tie
I saw him driving down the 61 in early July
White as a cotton field and sharp as a knife
I heard him howling as he passed me by

Well, the devil wears a suit and tie
I saw him driving down the 61 in early July
White as a cotton field and sharp as a knife
I heard him howling as he passed me by
