There was a time I tried to kill a man
Just for looking at me wrong
Anger so strong I couldn't stop myself
I was killing myself one shot at a time
Going insane from the pain
The women and the wine

But I finally hit bottom in an alley way
Hell wasn't but a breath away
So I hit my knee's in the street and begged god for mercy

Last night I told the devil where to go
You know heaven's got my soul
Ain't gonna listen to his lies no more
Last night I told the devil where to go

I could have saved myself a lot of hurting time
If I'd have just listened to my momma
Everytime she cried
Well I was way to lost in a sinner's haze
Burning up the days
Just another young man who had lost his way
Now it finally makes sense what the preacher said
When he said son you don't want to wake up dead
And find yourself alone in the fires of hell

Yeah everybody
Last night I told the devil where to go
You know heaven's got my soul
Ain't gonna listen to his lies no more
Last night I told the devil where to go

Now when you hear that demon knocking at your door
You just tell him you don't want his kind round here no more
Cause if you want to love if you want to live
If you want to be free you can't forget and forgive
You gotta kick him in the teeth and do exactly
Do exactly what I did

Yeah last night I told the devil where to go
You know heaven's got my soul
Ain't gonna listen to his lies no more
Last night I told the devil
Last night I told the devil
Last night I told the devil
Last night I told the devil
Last night I told the devil
I told the devil where to go
