about

From the forthcoming LP "$atan's Work is Never Done (Vol I)", "Jesus Help Me" is Lightnin' Woodcock's first single to be released on Suicide King Records. It's a cautionary tale about selling my soul to the devil, you're gonna love it.

lyrics

Jesus Help Me
I went down to the crossroads with my guitar
I had a Peppermint Patty and a good cigar
The wind was high, and so was I
It was midnight on a full moon, I tell ya no lie
I was young, impetuous and tired of waitin'
Jesus, help me, Jesus - I sold my soul to Satan

I got the skills that I needed to impress the world
Little bit of money, lots of drugs, booze and floozy girls
I indulged in carnal pleasures to my heart's content
Playing rock n roll music that the devil sent
I got down on my knees in front of hussies and I ate 'em
Jesus, help me, Jesus - I sold my soul to Satan

Have mercy on me Jesus, I done messed up and sold my soul to Satan
Jesus have mercy on me Jesus, I sold my soul
I sold my soul to Satan

For all you people who are wondering if my story's real
Every night I got the hellhounds nipping at my heel
Be careful what you wish for 'cause it might come true
And in the end the prince of darkness will come looking for you
Do as I say, not as I do, don't be like Lightnin' or Clayton
Jesus help me, Jesus - I sold my soul to Satan
When I die, Hell will be waiting
Jesus help me, Jesus - I sold my soul to Satan
I got down on my knees in front of hussies and I ate 'em
Jesus help me Jesus help me Jesus help me
I sold my soul to Satan
