Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea

(Harold Arlen / Ted Koehler)


Roy Fox and his Band

I'm home early
'Cause I got leave
Home till March?
Too good to believe
I'm always wrong
And I'll always be between
The devil and the deep blue sea

Come home late
And I'm told I've lied
More than likely
I'm locked outside
I'm always wrong
And I'll always be between
The devil and the deep blue sea

Most people sometime sigh
And believe they got the blues
But they'd have one long cry
If they were in my shoes
If, I'm unhappy, of course, I'm bad
If, I'm careful, It's cos I'm mad
I'm always wrong
And I'll always be between
The devil and the deep blue sea
