Temptation got the best of me, looks like it’s just my destiny
Devil’s got me running he’s hot on my track, got one eye forward and one looking back
Showing me the way that I’m destined to roll, the devil says he can lighten my load
Says he’ll pull some strings down at the crossroads
Playing my heart with worn out parts, paying my respects and singing the blues
Lord have mercy on my soul, making deals for rock n roll
Paying my crossroads dues
Lord I’ve been lost and I’ve been found, but I can’t find me no grace around
Show me the way I think I’m going down, need me a tune with that crying sound
Playing my heart with worn out parts, paying my respects and singing the blues
Lord have mercy on my soul, making deals for rock n roll
Paying my crossroads dues
Meet me down on that road tonight, down to the place where you seal it tight
Paying our respects to those before us
Singing the Blues with the Delta ghost chorus
