Lyrics

the old devils are at it again, who knows what they'll do
it's true right now like it was back then, the old devils are at it again

from behind these bars the view don't change
desperation death and despair
what little I hear of the outside world
it's not too different out there

they tell me there's a war without no end
the old devils are at it again
they've died by the millions children women and men
the old devils are at it again

when I say devils you know who I mean
these animals in the dark
malicious politicians with nefarious schemes
charlatans and crooked cops

a moonshine still gets you five to ten
the old devils are at it again
stripes on your back and a ball and chain
the old devils are at it again

two men stare out of prison bars
wonderin' what got 'em here
one saw mud but the other saw stars
praying that the end is near

the billboard outside says confess your sin
the old devils are at it again
I guess i will confess that I been sufferin'
the old devils are at it again
