Don't Let The Devil Take Your Mind

Lyrics: Jackie Greene
Music: Jackie Greene

A Jackie Greene song played with Phil Lesh and Friends in 2007

Well they say, don't look for heroes
If you don't care who you find
All roads lead to somewhere
And although the horse is blind
There's one thing I can say for sure
You can go through hell, and come out pure
If you just don't let the devil take your mind

Well there's no one man among us
Who is safe from the sirens' call
Temptation's like a crooked finger
Calling for [a soul]
Well the world's so damp it's beginning to swell
There's a baby crying from the water well
Just don't let the devil take your mind

Take your mind
Take your mind
The devil's on your heel, he's close behind
I'm just here to relate to you
Wherever you are, whatever you do
Just don't let the devil take your mind

Well the fortune teller whispered in your ear
Don't you remember?
She said, the night is come, the devil's here
Behind us
So get out the door, don't waste no time
Stay on the path, don't fall behind
And just don't let the devil take your mind

Take your mind
Take your mind
The devil's on your heel, he's close behind
Well I'm just here to relate to you
Wherever you are, whatever you do
Just don't let the devil take your mind

Well you don't need to walk on water
You don't need to be a saint
It don't matter who you are
Or even who you ain't
We walk through life and we live and die
We do our best to not ask why
Just don't let the devil take your mind

Just don't let the devil take your mind
