lyrics

Keep a light burning for me for when I get home.
Keep a light burning for me for when I get home.
Darling if you keep a light burning for me,
I’ll take you dancing with the Devil ‘neath the willow tree.
So won’t you keep a light burning for me for when I get home?

Be sure to bring the whiskey and I’ll be sure to bring the wine.
Be sure to bring the whiskey and I’ll be sure to bring the wine.
‘Cause if you bring the whiskey and if I bring the wine,
Then we’ll be dancing in the moonlight with the Devil keeping time.
So won’t you keep a light burning for me for when I get home?

And we’re dancing with the Devil and his hounds are nipping at our heels.
Yeah we’re dancing with the Devil and his hounds are nipping at our heels.
Now we’re dancing with the Devil and his hounds are at our heels,
He said he didn’t want your soul, but your kiss he’d gladly steal.
So won’t you keep a light burning for me for when I get home?

Now I’m walking home alone with my back warmed by the new sunrise.
Now I’m walking home alone with my back warmed by the new sunrise.
Yes I’m walking home alone beneath the clear blue skies
Because I saw the Devil dancing ‘round the fire in your eyes.
So won’t you keep a light burning for me for when I get home?

Keep a light burning for me for when I get home.
Keep a light burning for me for when I got home.
Darling if you keep a light burning for me,
I’ll take you dancing with the Devil ‘neath the willow tree
So won’t you keep a light burning for me for when I get home?
