Devil's Fiddle (Gabriel's Song)


My father had me by the hand, I was just a girl
We came across an old fiddler man, his music changed my world
I'd never looked in eyes so bright or felt a soul so free
Before my father could break my stare...
The old man said to me

Bend and ear toward the devil's fiddle
Listen up for Gabriel's song
Find your place right in the middle...and play your song

I only saw the old man once I remember him as wise
I search for truth in many a song both noble and full of lies
I listen for the sacred and also the profane
Now I start to hear my song...
Sometimes joy sometimes pain

I bend and ear toward the devil's fiddle
Listen up for Gabriel's song
Find my place right in the middle...and play my song

Now I ramble 'round this world so much to see
Money's scarce but I have my friends alone I'll never be
Troubles come and troubles go I'll take my share of pain
Look into these eyes you'll see...
This journey's not in vain

I bend and ear toward the devil's fiddle
Listen up for Gabriel's song
Find my place right in the middle...and play my song
