Jones, George - The Devil Is Gathering Firewood Lyrics




Oh, the devil has turned this big old world into a party place
The next year that you got a drink and a lover to embrace
Now you think he's being good to you but he's got his sneaky ways
And the devil is gathering firewood for the long hot winter days.

Oh, the race is on with Jesus to win every soul he can
We better get down on our knees and pray if we want to see the promise land
We better help Jesus to take the lead 'cause hell is a burning place
The devil is gathering firewood for the long hot winter days.

He's working every day and night to keep a steady fire
A honky tonkin' carnival with anything to ride
But if you'll stop and listen you'll hear his act at play
And the devil is gathering firewood for the long hot winter days.

Oh, the race is on with Jesus to win every soul that he can
We better get down on our knees and pray if we want to see the promise land
Better help Jesus take the lead cause hell is a burning place
The devil is gathering firewood for the long hot winter days.

Yes, the devil is gathering firewood for the long hot winter days
