Ed Bruce – Evil Angel lyrics

Evil angel on my shoulder well you sure do know your stuff
Now you start off with just a little till I just can’t get enough

Well that first sip of whiskey burnt your tongue
Now didn’t it
That first sip of whiskey it burnt your tongue
Now didn’t it
But you you had to go and have another
Now didn’t you
But the first sip of whiskey oh don’t you remember
That first sip of whiskey burnt your tongue

Evil angel on my shoulder well you sure do know your stuff…

Now that first cigarette had burnt your eyes
Now didn’t it
But that first cigarette burnt your eyes
Now didn’t it
But you you had to go and light another
Now didn’t it
But that first cigarette oh son do you remember
That first cigarette had burnt your eyes
Evil angel on my shoulder well you sure do know your stuff…
Now that first cheating love made you ashamed
Now didn’t it
That first cheating love made you ashamed
Now didn’t it
But you had to go and find another
Now didn’t you
But that first cheating love oh some don’t I remember
That first cheating love made you ashamed
Evil angel on my shoulder well you sure do know your stuff…
Evil angel on my shoulder well you sure do know your stuff…
Ah till I just can’t get enough
