Well the devil stole a car in Memphis. In just
sixty-seconds he was on the highway headed
for Texas. Seems he was in need of a certain
soul to steal. Not just any, but a conservative
one. But the devil was confident as a 'history
since he was free to do this on other missions.
-
But as fate would have it, he ran out of gas just
outside a little town in Waco, RFD'd Crawford.
Only one light was home, so he took to that as
the place. Upon that door he did knock, knock.
-
By appearance, the face that came to the door
that night was tired and tipsy. Too much 'ale.
Little did he glean, too much fire and hell as
well awaited the fateful answering nightmare.
-
Hey, he said, “come on in” unknowingly he
slurred to the devil, I got a couple of drinks
left. So you're just in time to join me. Well,
the devil being an impatient fellow went at
the point. You see my...I'm down the road,
mile or so, and I've ran out of gas. So I'm in
need of just a dollar. I want to fill the tank.
-
To wit the appearance laughed, fill-up your
tank for a dollar? You-bet, I'll wager you a
dollar. Appearance flipped out him a dollar
and placed it face down right upon the table.
-
Thanks, said the devil, thanks very much,
what can I do for you? Do for me? Asked a
much less appearance, what can you do for
me? Oh, said the devil, let's just check and
see. Just trust me for a little while longer, I
can made any of your dreams come so true.
-
Yea, right, slurred an appearance, tired now
by the quiet. Can you make me a president?
-
Or even the gov-oner of this here one state?
-
Sure said the devil, but can you 'read? Yes
said the appearance, wondering what the
hell this stranger was about. OK, just say
this here line, and he pointed to the spot
on the dollar, every time you are in need.
-
When it looks like you're in trouble just
always remember this dollar and read it
out loud. So say it, “In God We Trust”,
and you'll almost never lose in any race.
-
Now with the deed done, the devil walked
to the car he stole in Memphis, turned the
key and headed out, with a back to the sun.
Ever smiling 'cause old appearance did run.
