If The Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets)

In the style of

Joe Diffie

Lyrics

diablo motors had
a hell of a sale
downtown
yesterday

word got around
no money down
take years and
years to pay

when i got there
the lot was bare
but the salesman
said hold on

for a little cash
i got a two-tone nash
out behind my barn

if the devil danced
in empty pockets
he'd have a ball
in mine

with a nine foot grand
a ten piece band
and a twelve girl
chorus line

i'd raise some loot in
a three piece suit
give 'em one dance
for a dime

if the devil danced
in empty pockets
he'd have a
ball in mine

well he said friend
it ain't the end
let's see what
i can do

if you own a home
i've got a loan
tailor made for you
then above the racket

a voice in my jacket said
i'll tote the note
the devil made me do it
talked me into it

and that was all
she wrote

if the devil danced in
empty pockets
he'd have a ball in mine

with a nine foot grand
a ten piece band
and a twelve girl
chorus line

i'd raise some loot in
a three-piece suit
give 'em one dance
for a dime

if the devil danced
in empty pockets
he'd have a
ball in mine

now they say debt
is a bottomless pit
where the devil
likes to play

i'd sell my soul to
get outta this hole
but there'd be
hell to pay

ah yeah

if the devil danced
in empty pockets
he'd have a ball in mine

with a nine foot grand
a ten piece band
and a twelve girl
chorus line

i'd raise some loot
in a three-piece suit
give 'em one dance
for a dime

if the devil danced
in empty pockets
he'd have a
ball in mine
