Bad Things

I was standing by the river watching my bridge burn down
I was standing by the river watching my bridge burn down
Cause I done a bad thing and I'm paying it for all right now
Oh I've done a bad thing and I'm paying it for all right now
 
Hey there doctor, tell me what do you see?
Cause I got a bad disease and need of your remedy
And I've been aching from my head to my toes
I've been aching so much that I just don't ache no more
But there is a one thing that I need you to see
And you ain't never met a man sick as me
 
Hey mister bartender
You see my tremblin' hands
You know I need a drink and I need it so bad
Cause I don't know...Lordy what I just done
But you got me burning like a foxchild rebel under the sun
And now I'm shaking from all my misery
Cause you ain't never met a man as wrong as me
 
And no, no, no, I dont lie
Cause I was taken over by the devil last night
And I know, know, know, when he come around
I've done a bad thing and I'm paying for it all right now
 
Hey mister Judge, you gonna lock me up
Cause I've been thinking things that I should not thinkin' of
Go and hide all your brothers, go and hide the knife (night?)
You got me creepin' though the dark in the middle of the lonely night
You'd better lock your door, n' throw away the key
Cause you ain't never met a man as guilty as me
 
And I no, no, no, I don't lie
Cause I was taken over by the devil last night
And I know, know, know, when he come around
And I've done bad a thing and I'm paying for it right now
 
And I no, no, no, I don't lie
Cause I was taken over by the devil last night
And I know, know, know, when he come around
Well I've done a bad thing and I'm paying for it all right now
