lyrics

Blind man hit me when i was drunk,
With a 44 pistol looked like a BB gun
Well i just kept a walkin, but i couldn't stand up
I had a blackened feeling sittin in my gut
Chimney sweeper saw me, just the other day
Said you aint lookin good are you feeling okay?
He was black as the night, no light shines on me
And wherever I roam you know that I aint free

Wherever I roam, you know that I aint free
The devil's always waitin, right behind me

Jealousy picked me up on the side of the road
Obsession was with her lookin mighty cold
They asked me where i was headed, but I couldn't see
Everything was blackened in front of me
The ghost of my dad was drinkin at the bar
Said boy i know you havent gone far
The sky was shaking when he spoke to me
Said don't follow in my footsteps because I aint free

Wherever I roam, you know that I aint free
The devil's always waitin, right behind me

Snakes of Medusa, whispered in my ear
Said boy i know you got plenty of fear
I brushed them off, kept on walkin down the road
But every step i took you know my feet began to mold
Loneliness saw me struggling to get home
He knew I was walkin for days all alone
He crept up slow, right behind me
That moment i knew I'd never be free

Wherever I roam, you know that I aint free
The devil's always waitin, right behind me
