The Lyrics

The Devil Went Out To Vegas

The devil went out to Vegas
He was lookin' for a soul to steal
Shouldn’t be too hard in his own backyard
But he was willin' to make a deal
When he came across this one man
Playin' some blackjack and playin’ it hot
And the devil jumped up on a slot machine
And said,"Man let me tell you what.
I guess you didn't know it
But I'm a blackjack dealer too.
And if you'd care to take a dare
I'll make a bet with you.
Now you play a pretty good game old man,
But give the devil his due.
I'll bet these chips of gold against your soul
'Cause I think that I can beat you."
The man said, "My name's Johnny,
And it might be a sin,
But I'll take your bet and
You're gonna regret it
‘Cause I'm the best there's ever been."

Johnny, sharpen up your skills and don’t get yourself barred
‘Cause hell's broke loose in Vegas
And the devil’s dealin’ cards.
And if you win you get this stack of chips made out of gold
But if you lose the devil gets your soul.

Well the devil shuffled up the decks
And he said, "I'll start this show."
And fire flew from his fingertips
As he dealt them out real slow
And he tossed the cards across the felt
And then he turned up an ace.
He looked for fear in Johnny’s eyes
But couldn’t find the slightest trace

Johnny hit a blackjack
And he said, "Well that’s pretty good old son”
The devil asked for even money
Johnny said, “That ain’t how it's done."

Fire in Las Vegas
Don't you run
The devil's in the house
Of the risin' sun
Don’t you be afraid
Just play your game
The devil is done and
Put to shame

The devil bowed his head
Because in the end, he'd been beat
And he laid that golden chip stack
On the felt by Johnny's seat
Johnny said, "Devil just come on back
If you ever wanna try again
I done told you once you son-of-a-bitch
I'm the best there's ever been"

Fire in Las Vegas
Don't you run
The devil's in the house
Of the risin' sun
Don’t you be afraid
Just play your game
The devil is done and
Put to shame
