I've been reading the Dark Tower series lately by Stephen King, and this song is what comes to mind when I think of Roland the gunslinger. Thought it made a pretty decent blues/folk song, even though its still a very rough draft.


The Man in Black

the devil is keeping me warm tonight
the devil is keeping me warm tonight
the devil is keeping me warm tonight
because i got no place to stay

the desert wind is blowing black
the day may never take me back
the desert wind is blowing black
because the devil's on his way

no i wont go back
the fire's already built
i have to strike the match

il keep chasin until my bones are cracked
until the rough skin burns right off of my neck
il keep chasin until my bones are cracked
because there aint nothing left

you believe me when i say he's real
you can see him when your heart takes ill
you believe me when i say he's real
and you best go hide away

no i wont go back
i'm breathin' down his neck
and he better believe that

the devil is keeping me warm tonight
he'll be with me til the sand turns white
the devil is keeping me warm tonight
because i got no place to stay
