My Ancestors were French

.
My ancestors were French and, for what it’s worth, faith ruled their lives. Me, I’ve never been to Church. I haven’t been good. But I’ve made my mark and I’ve got in trouble, listenin’ to my devil in the dark…
.
Y’know I’ve always landed on my feet, and I’ve got a sense of history…and those flowers take me back…
.
The devil inside, sittin’ on my shoulder, pushin’ me out so I’m sittin’ on a boulder in the middle of the lake. And the devil can’t swim, so I’m feelin’ brave and I’m gonna get him.
.
It’s gonna get colder, if he falls in the lake, he’ll be off my shoulder, off my back. There’ll be no more trouble, gonna make a fresh start, stop listenin’ to the devil, gonna listen to my heart.
.
Y’know I’ve always landed on my feet, and I’ve got a sense of history, and… those flowers take me back
