Joe Diffie – If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets) lyrics

Diablo motors had a hell of a sale downtown yesterday
Word got around, no money down, take years and years to pay
When I got there the lot was bare, but the salesman said hold on
For a little cash, I got a two-tone Nash out behind the barn
If the devil danced in empty pockets
He’d have a ball in mine
With a nine foot grand, a ten piece band
And a twelve girl chorus line
I’d raise some loot in a three piece suit
Give him one dance for a dime
If the devil danced in empty pockets
He’d have a ball in mine
Well he said friend, it ain’t the end, let’s see what I can do
If you own a home, I’ve got a loan tailor-made for you
Then above the racket a voice in my jacket said, “I’ll tote the note”
The devil made me do it, talked me into it and that was all she wrote
If the devil danced in empty pockets
He’d have a ball in mine
With a nine foot grand, a ten piece band
And a twelve girl chorus line
I’d raise some loot in a three piece suit
Give him one dance for a dime
If the devil danced in empty pockets
He’d have a ball in mine
They say debt is a bottomless pit
Where the devil likes to play
I’d sell my soul to get out of this hole
But there’d be hell to pay
If the devil danced in empty pockets
He’d have a ball in mine
With a nine foot grand, a ten piece band
And a twelve girl chorus line
I’d raise some loot in a three piece suit
Give him one dance for a dime
If the devil danced in empty pockets
He’d have a ball in mine
