The Vanquishing of the Devil Out West (Yee-haw)

By Andrew R. Duckworth

Out west was where the devil rode,
Preying on both the young and old
From sun up ‘til the stars came out each night.

No one seemed to know what to do
When the dark horse would trample through.
Not a soul could bear to put up a fight.

One night a man came trotting in.
The man was no stranger to sin
And he sat down at the saloon barstool.

And when the devil came to speak,
The man showed that he wasn’t weak
And said “Easy! My debt’s been paid in full.”

The devil left to hide his face
And feed upon another place.
The town embraced the man who came along.

But the man held up a firm hand,
Said “I don’t think you understand.
I’m just a man who sings a Jesus song.”

Yes… I have been listening to some Johnny Cash… This one is inspired by a legend.
