I Was Dancin' With the Devil
©2002 Corey Parkman

I came up a Baptist child
A little meak, a little wild
Though my parents tried to teach me right
Soon as I turned seventeen
I skipped my curfews, ripped my jeans
Raised hell till each and every mornin' light

The whiskey kept me grinnin'
Steppin' after short skirt women
Chasin' and fornicatin' every night
But last night in my drunken sleep
Jesus came and spoke to me
That's when I woke up from my sinful life

Chorus
I was dancin' with the devil
till Jesus Christ cut in
I was jukin' and a' jivin'
to the rhythm of my sin
Until my dear sweet Savior
asked me to walk with Him
I was dancin' with the devil
till Jesus Christ cut in

This morning is a new day
And I'm back in church to pray
Time to heal my spiritual relations
I know Baptists don't dance much
But my joy has got me all stirred up
Two steppin' at the Spirit's invitation

Chorus
I was dancin' with the devil
till Jesus Christ cut in
I was jukin' and a' jivin'
to the rhythm of my sin
Until my dear sweet Savior
asked me to walk with Him
I was dancin' with the devil
till Jesus Christ cut in

Bridge
Sins are forgiven, old life buried and dead
Now I'll follow Jesus wherever I'm led

Chorus
I was dancin' with the devil
till Jesus Christ cut in
I was jukin' and a' jivin'
to the rhythm of my sin
Until my dear sweet Savior
asked me to walk with Him
I was dancin' with the devil
till Jesus Christ cut in
