Oh! Let me go, let me go, let me go, devil
Stay away, stay away, from my soul
I got so low, got so low, yes so low, devil
I let you, evil you, get control

First the gamblin', then the cheatin'
Then the bottles of rye
Got the habit, had to have it, or die'
I lost m' pride, lost m' friends, it's the end, devil
Let me go, let me go, let me go!"

I'm gonna fight, gonna fight, with my might, devil
I gotta win over sin if I can
I've been a fool, yes a fool, just your tool, devil
A disgrace to the race of man

Quitin' gamblin, quitin' cheatin'
And the bottles of rye
Gonna do it, gotta do it or die
I'm gonna pray, pray my way, through the day, devil
So you may, just as well let me go...
