Avett Brothers, The - Satan Pulls The Strings Lyrics




Baby's in the cradle, Mama's in the bed
Sparrow's on the windowsill and the devil's in my head.
Devil's in my head mama, devil's in my head
Baby's in the cradle and the devil's in my head

When the winter yields to summertime
The whip-poor-will she sings
My heart is in the puppet box and Satan pulls the strings
Satan pulls the strings mama, Satan pulls the strings
My heart is in the puppet box and Satan pulls the strings

Well the front beat's in my brother, Lord
And the back beat's in me
God is in the song and the devil's in my feet
Lord, devil's in our feet, mama devil's in our feet
God is in the song and the devil's in our feet

Mama's cooking something up, serving to us all
Satan's ringing in now and I gotta take the call
Gotta take the call, boys, gotta take the call
Satan's ringing in now and I gotta take the call
Gotta take the call, boys, gotta take the call
Satan's ringing in now and I gotta take the call

  1. b24harman

    Good to see Johnny Depp trying new things. He's really rockin' that stand up bass.

  2. Matthew Mercer

    Not as good without the electric bass on the verse. Still like it, though.

  3. Unanimous Ignoramus

    11 dislikes?!?!? What’s wrong with you people???

    Kim Keeling

    For Real?!? What is wrong with some people!

  4. Chuck Ryan

    This is the shit

  5. Dobin Williams

    I love this band. Even their live albums and top songs. Even their rock

  6. b24harman

    The uglier brother on the right just needs to stop singing and take it down a notch.

  7. Mariam Jensen

    First song I've heard ot thers I don't like

  8. Buelligan88

    Never hear about these guys anymore.

    Teresa Zymroz

    Buelligan88 do what? They are in the music news all the time. New album due out this year and they still cover the previous album True Sadness until the new hits. Google TAB if you don't believe me. Avett Nation is growing stronger every day

  9. karen Hyde

    they have a passion for their music. heart and soul. like Chris Willis art . a lot of passion and soul.

  10. Shyra M

    such a jam <3

  11. Sheep-man

    this should be on preacher, great track

  12. Amber Heath

    Honestly....I liked it better when it was just 3 of them.  I saw them before they went more mainstream and I enjoyed it much better. I've seen them 4 times and 3 times was before they got bigger like they are now.

    Macky D

    I feel that way about Nahko and Medicine for the people......they're still good just not the same

  13. Lindsey Powell

    "A banjo in hand make a very fine man!"

    joy gay

    "laundry room " can't be beat they ooze sex appeal so much so it don't matter what they sing and when they sing the word s touch my soul ! It is hard to explain ,I don't know if it's there words in the songs or if it's because they pull you in and make you want to follow them and then your lost in there web and you like it!

  14. Haney Ulan Ulan

  15. imathayne

    Praise hail! Would you boys quit ripping us schizophrenics off? It makes us paranoid. Thanks.

  16. Shea

    They opened up with this at Shaky Knees. I was trippin hard, and was fucking terrified.
