Be Careful What You Ask For © Hal Brolund (SOCAN) 2022
I was standing at the crossroads waiting for the devil to take his share
I saw the ghost of Robert Johnson, he was still standing there
He said "be careful what you ask for, in this world it's always true.
The devil is in the details and you might just wind up screwed."
I was playing Smokestack Lighting in a bar in Memphis Tennessee
I saw the ghost of Furry Lewis staring back at me
He said "be careful what you ask for, it's a natural fact.
The devil might give you riches, but he'll damn sure take them back."
Be careful what you ask for you just might get it
When that bill comes due you might regret it
Be careful what you ask for that's what I say to you
Be careful what you ask for no matter what you do
