'Crossroad demon blues'

This must be my lucky day

Oh what a beautiful boy’s come my way
Ain’t nobody can offer protection
to a man set on a resurrection.

We’ve met before and I know his name
Oh what a beautiful boy’s come my way
He don’t need no introduction
He’s got a well-known will for self-destruction

Ah what do I see in those eyes
Green as crumbling mountainsides
Grief-stricken hard and ready to make a deal
He’s always been a gamblin’ man
But the stakes have never been so lethal

His hands are shaking but his back is straight
Oh what a beautiful boy’s come my way
Two roads crossing in a field of wheat
The stars are screaming but he don’t heed
I’m the only woman can give him what he needs.

Somebody’s lovely body’s growing cold as clay
Oh what a beautiful boy’s come my way
He ain’t gonna worry about the fire or the pain
If the heart he’s a part of will start beating again.

Ah what do I see in those eyes
Green as moss on a mountainside
Grief-stricken certainty burnin’ up through his chest
He’s always been a gamblin’ man
So I’ll see his forfeit and raise him a kiss
He’s always been such a beautiful man
so I’ll take his forfeit and end him with a kiss.
