Josh Ward - The Devil Don't Scare Me Lyrics




Preacher used to preach about fire and brimstone
I was shakin' in the shoes in the pew I sat on
12 years old, afraid of where I'd go
10 years later wonderin' how I got here
Where neon burns and they sell cold beer
Heaven seems so far away

'Cause ever since the night she left me
Ain't a damn thing that can help me
I've tried prayin', I've tried whiskey
It's livin' hell wishin' she'd missed me
No I ain't afraid of dyin'
'Cause I lost the one thing I was livin' for
Now the devil don't scare me anymore

Thunder in the sky used to get my attention
Now when lightnin' strikes it only gets me wishin'
That it'd strike me, but I ain't that lucky
A curve in the road used to slow me down
Now I'm 90 miles an hour two wheels off the ground
It can't hurt me now

'Cause ever since the night she left me
Ain't a damn thing that can help me
I've tried prayin', I've tried whiskey
It's livin' hell wishin' she'd missed me
No I ain't afraid of dyin'
'Cause I lost the one thing I was livin' for
Now the devil don't scare me anymore

No I ain't afraid of dyin'
'Cause I lost the one thing I was livin' for
Now the devil don't scare me anymore
Devil don't scare me anymore
Devil don't scare me anymore

    We are all searching for THINGS like money, trucks, houses, people to fill that void in our life.

  25. Moon Star

    Wow, this is me right now. I’ve tried everything, I even made myself homeless, lived in crack house and I didn’t even do drugs but I felt like that’s where I deserved to be, Punishing myself and my body for not being able to have a child, and being a shitty human being but I paid my dues and I was so angry. Now I’m like whatever death don’t scare me, I’ll shake the devils hand, let’s do this but I got god in my heart and that’s the only reason I’m moving forward. This song nailed it for me.

  31. Urban Survivalist

    I feel the meaning of this song, have never been afraid of the devil... Actually I feel like I will meet him soon and kick his ass... I lost my wife and son in an accident...
    Every day I wake i pray it's the last... I fight peeps to ease the pain, hoping someone better than me will serve me up and end my misery... But haven't met'em yet... I seek out those who could easily end me, but no matter how much I pester them i can never earn that reward...
    So those of you out there who think you're alone or have it bad remember someone else always has one to top it...

    Jennifer Kingsborough

    Jacob I am so sorry. My heart just broke when I read your comment. I lost my son 11 years ago, so I know the pain that causes. I wish I could tell you that it gets better, but for me, it hasn't. I eventually learned to live with it and even though I still think about him every single day, sometimes every single hour, when I those thoughts do come up, they are the good ones. At first it seemed like everytime I thought of him it was when he was dying or right after he had died, and that was torture. Those bad memories will not be as frequent though as time goes on hopefully. I know that your wife and son would never want your life to be lessened by what happened to them. They would want you to live everyday you're alive to it's fullest and to be the man they know you to be. All that fighting shit, it ain't worth it. It's not going to bring them back.

  44. B. Jones

    Honestly after my past breakup and a Firefighting career this song truly hits the heart... you have the deepness of the job that hits your heart and mind but after losing the one you loved it destroys the rest of your sanity.... thankfully after a couple years I'm slowly healing up and have began a new relationship journey! Love this song to the core.

    Stephen Gore

    Brent Jones I feel you bro. Iv been on the job now for almost 8 years, rough areas and rural areas. Calls from the ghetto and the country, so you can imagine the calls. I just got left last December and found one last July, no she has cheated and gone, and I don’t think I can take anymore. Just putting my faith and my life in gods hands. Letting him have his way with me. Hopefully it gets better. But iv about had it between both. Don’t think I can take anymore

    B. Jones

    @Stephen Gore Just hang in there man... In time things will improve and don't let the darkness consume ya. God definitely works in weird ways. Easier said than done of course I'm just thankful for not letting my thoughts consume me.

    Col Striker

    I know how you feel . I was through the same thing was deeply in love and worked hard for everything never took gifts or hand me downs . Worked for everything and did everything on call 24/7 wanted to marry and had a baby on the way . Did everything I was supposed to do as a man . An in a flash it was all gone . For the second time . Never good enough or to damn good . Can't win for losing . Hopefully one day God will guide me to the woman that will 5hay empty spot in my heart and soul

  68. Brian Caloway

    Amazing song, that's some deep stuff absolutely love it. I'm in a very deep hole in my life feels like I'm Livin' in hell, I was engaged to what was a amazing girl for 6 months straight was bout to get married on the 1 year n she decides to cheat on me because she said it scared hell to think she was bout to have to settle down n have a life n to grow up. Went into a horrible depression n picked up the bottle n went after it got caught ended up in Rehab for a couple weeks to detox n got out n got a amazing job that Ive had for a year n 7 months now n started low on the bottom the chain now im very high on the chain n Workin' my way up n just got the offer to become a department head n doing amazing then thought things were finally lookin' up for me and God was opening up some amazing door's for me. Out of the blink of an eye I lost my best friend (my grandfather) he passed away then I get into a horrible wreck today n went back into a horrible depression n just really not myself again feels like everytime I see the light something else happens I just don't understand it but.. I'm a hell of a fighter n will fight through anything but... Here latley feels like I'm getting defeated with everything going on n it snowballing quickly. But.. then song hits home cause I lost what I thought was my best friend my future ex wife n then stuff starts going up n snow balls right back now.

    Chelsea Mariah_

    Brian Caloway don’t give up hold your head up and keep going. God puts us through war to see if we can fight it. I don’t wanna to much get in your business about the girl but there was a reason and only god knows.

    Brian Caloway

    @Chelsea Mariah_ I appreciate it n yes ma'am, I've been keeping my head high n keep rollin' strong n do what I love n keep Workin' towards my goals in life, yes ma'am till this day it still doesn't make sense to me but... U are right only God knows why things didn't go right. But... God always has a better plan for us written out it's just matter of timing till we deserve that plan he has for us.

    Reminds me of when my ex left me I've not been right since then

    shieldmaiden000

    @Brian Caloway She wasn't a real woman. You will find that real woman who wants exactly what you want in life and one who will work along side you to make your dreams come true. Just thank your lucky stars she is out of your life. She did this before you were married, she would do it while being married too. Keep your head up.

    AlabamaPanther 1776

    @Mitchell Gorman bro that sucks...I had a similar thing happen. Dated a girl I thought I was going to marry. After 3 1/2 years, July 4th weekend, she blocks my number, social media, everything. Finally the next week went to her house and said we were done. About a year ago, she called me and apologized...she had a kid with this jerk and got pressured into marrying the dip shit by her family. It was so cool to have someone that you loved and was also your best friend. People say there is no such thing as "someone made just for you" but I met mine. Best of luck bro...hang in there.

    Joe Moore

    I right there with ya on that

    Johnny

    She left after 5 years... That's been almost 6 years ago now.... I've been drinking my life away ever since... Never even dated a girl since her.... Sometimes broken hearts don't ever mend
