The Lyrics

The devil just went out bowling
Went to the lanes late on Friday night
He came straight from hell
And he could really tell
That I was the worse bowler in sight

So than he walked right up to me
He said I know it's late and you want to sleep
We'll play just one game
Even let me pick the lane
And if I win my soul I keep

So I better bring out my best A game
Tell you it's over for me
He bet a new can of skoal
Against my soul
Oh why did I agree?

He was bowling like a pro
Need help for heavens sake
Saw an open door
With an open frame four
Oh that was a real lucky break

The devil yelled and screamed oh sh*t
Just because I faked a cough
Distracted him it made aim off
And it made him roll a split

To tell you I think I bowled alright
Victory, it was in sight
I fought long and hard that night
I wasn't going without a fight

Then in frame number ten
I was down by nine, I was really scared
Calmed my nerves and then somehow I spared
I'll never be so dumb again

I wiped the beads of sweat right off of my head
The devil face was an evil shade of red
I was handed that new can of skoal
Took a proud dip "cause I still had my soul

The devil seemed to grieve
Because he knew that he'd been beat
It was a bitter sweet defeat
Now I beg would you please leave

Than I said, I just had a good game
If you played me any other day
I doubt I could even come close to play
What I did in the past ten frames

And then he walked next to me said I bowl well
I said thanks a lot now go right back to hell
He said let know if you want to bowl
I said NO I'm just glad to have your skoal

Hmmm. I absolutely love this song. The only things I could point out is that you might want to make the words flow a little bit better. And on the first verse, you put it that the devil walked up to you and said that he could keep his soul if he won, which makes no sense. Rather, it would be that you could keep your soul if you won, and it makes sense when written that way. And the rambling on about the can of skoal is a little out of place. Lastly, All you really did was change it from playing fiddle to bowling. So really, it has potential, but not so great right now. Needs some TLC before I can give you 555. So, I give you 444.
