The Devil's in the Courtyard

 

The Devil’s in the courtyard

There’s no money to be made

The Devil’s in the courtyard

He’s hiding in the shade

 

Singing where does the time go

Under the weeping limb

 Jewel and Uncle Harold

 Take the sinner in

 

Come on Violet, Come on Blue, 

Come on remember all the love that you knew

Come on Violet, Come on Blue,

Dreamer of the dream I dream only of you

 

It’s Easter morning 

Light upon the land

The sun is rising

Over the flower stand

 

The earth and the quiet

feed the hungry man

Mama  and her children

Walking hand in hand

 

Come on Violet, Come on Blue, 

Come on remember all the love that you knew

Come on Violet, Come on Blue, 

Dreamer of the dream I dream only of you

 

The Devil’s in the courtyard 

there’s no money to be made

The Devil’s in the courtyard 

he’s hiding in the shade

He’s shaking in his boots

he’s hiding in the shade

 

So cool

in the shade

So cool

in the shade

So cool

in the shade
