The Devil Goes Fishin'

James Bonamy

Wake up honey let me talk to you 
I had a dream last night that just can't come true 
About a man and a woman stuck right in the middle of heaven and you know where 
I hate to say they looked a lot like us 
When I saw 'em fight and I heard 'em fuss 
And I woke up with a premonition 
We just best beware 

The devil goes fishin' in trouble water 
He'll come callin' if we don't bother 
To make things right and love the way it's supposed to be 
There's an angel sittin' on our right shoulder 
But she won't stay there if it gets much colder 
We better watch out or it'll get a lot hotter 
Cause the devil goes fishin' in troubled water 

There are times we cross the line and let selfishness and foolish pride 
Leave us weak and make a big ol' target out of you and me 
But sweet forgiveness can fix it all 
And add another rock to that mighty wall 
That keeps the harsh winds out and helps to calm that mean ol' ranging sea 

The devil goes fishin' in trouble water 
He'll come callin' if we don't bother 
To make things right and love the way it's supposed to be 
There's an angel sittin' on our right shoulder 
But she won't stay there if it gets much colder 
We better watch out or it'll get a lot hotter 
Cause the devil goes fishin' in troubled water 

So let's put up a posted sign 
That says no fishin' in your heart and mine 
Trespassers best beware 
'Cause there's a big ol' love in there 

The devil goes fishin' in trouble water 
He'll come callin' if we don't bother 
To make things right and love the way it's supposed to be 
There's an angel sittin' on our right shoulder 
But she won't stay there if it gets much colder 
We better watch out or it'll get a lot hotter 
'Cause the devil goes fishin' in troubled water 

The devil goes fishin' in trouble water 
He'll come callin' if we don't bother 
To make things right and love the way it's supposed to be 
There's an angel sittin' on our right shoulder 
But she won't stay there if it gets much colder 
We better watch out or it'll get a lot hotter 
'Cause the devil goes fishin' in troubled water
