I went all the way down

I went all the way down

I went down the crossroads Like all my hero’s had done
I was looking for the devil, but he was on the run
He lost his golden fiddle in an ill conceived bet
Johnny took it from him, and Johnny has it yet
confused and bewildered I lost my train of thought
tried to catch it at the next station, I missed it and got lost

I went all the way down, and rock bottom eluded me
searching so hard for something, I still refused to see
The water rushing past at the bottom of the well
Couldn’t find so damn blind living there in hell

I went back to the crossroads, prepared to sell my soul
for a moment of peace in the heat, the Devil was on a roll
He wasn’t prepared to take the deal I laid there at his feet
He sat back and bellowed, then he turned up the heat
I was on the run again, in a circle I progressed
was this some kind of nightmare or was this some kind of test?

I went all the way down, and rock bottom eluded me
searching so hard for something, I still refused to see
No end to this tunnel, I am seeing no lights                                                                                   It’s hotter than hell and darker than night

I went down the crossroads Like all my hero’s had done
The Devil he had me and he was having some fun 
He said boy let me tell you how its gonna be                                                                                       you got a soul your gonna give it to me                                                                                               I said listen here you creepy old son                                                                                                   you do not scare me and I will not run

I went back to the crossroads, shovel in hand
for a moment of peace, I now had a plan
He wasn’t prepared to take the deal that I made
so I forced that old fucker to dig his own grave

Yea now he lies naked buried and burned,                                                                                         if you come to my crossroads, Next time its your turn
