"Devil Is Prowling" Notes

I wrote this song in the Fall of 1994. It was one of the first times that I put down my guitar and tried to write a song that was something I could not play on the guitar. When I did this my songs started sounding more diverse than they had since I started writing songs in about 1976.

"Devil Is Prowling" Lyrics

  
The devil is prowling like a lion 
Seeking whom he may devour 
Who will buy these lies he's selling 
Half truth of the hour 
 
He's telling lies he told in Eden 
Brush 'em off and sell for new 
Looking for someone to swindle 
Trying to get his claws on you 
 
So, close the door and bar the window 
Got to keep the devil out 
When old Satan comes a calling 
Turn to him and shout 
 
Oh Lucifer I just can't bear you 
Satan just you go away 
Your doom is sure and your just killing 
Time until the judgment day 
 
You believe the Lord is Jesus 
But that isn't all it takes 
Satan and his hosts believe too 
It gives them the shakes 
 
So, close the door and bar the window 
Got to keep the devil out 
When old Satan comes a calling 
Turn to him and shout 
 
Oh Lucifer I just can't bear you 
Satan just you go away 
Your doom is sure and your just killing 
Time until the judgment day 
 
The devil is prowling like a lion 
Seeking whom he may devour 
Who will buy these lies he's selling 
Half truth of the hour 
 
He's telling lies he told in Eden 
Brush 'em off and sell for new 
Looking for someone to swindle 
Trying to get his claws on you 
 
So, close the door and bar the window 
Got to keep the devil out 
When old Satan comes a calling 
Turn to him and shout 
 
Oh Lucifer I just can't bear you 
Satan just you go away 
Your doom is sure and your just killing 
Time until the judgment day 
 
Your doom is sure and your just killing 
Time until the judgment day
