......he was looking for a Soul to Steal He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind:
he was willin' to make a deal. When he came across this ole bald man
shootin' a camera and playin' it hot. And the Devlin jumped upon a graffiti
wall and said: "Boy let me tell you what:
"I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a model.
"And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
"Now you play a pretty good photographer, boy, but give the Devlin his due:
"I bet a camera of gold against your soul, 'cos I think I'm better than you."
The boy said: "My name's J T and it might be a sin,
"But I'll take your bet, your gonna regret, 'cos I'm the best that's ever been."
J T you focus up your lens and play your camera hard.
'Cos hells going to break loose in Georgia and the Devlin deals it hard.
And if you win you get this shiny camera made of gold.
But if you lose, the Devlin gets your soul.
The Devlin opened up his case and he said: "I'll start this show."
And fire flew from his fingertips as he modeled up for show.
And he pulled his body across this graffiti wall and it made an evil hiss.
Then a band of demons joined in and it looked something like this.
When the Devlin finished, J T said "Well you're pretty good ol' son.
"But if you'll stand there next to this wall, right there, and let me show you how its done."
Fire on the moun, run boys, run.
The Devlin's in the house of the risin' sun.
Chicken in the bread pin, pickin' out dough.
"Granny, does your dog bite?"
"No, child, no."
The Devlin bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat.
He laid that golden Camera on the ground at J T's feet.
J T said: "Devlin just come to HTL if you ever want to try again.
"I told you once, you son of a gun, I'm the best that's ever been."
I had the pleasure of working with Christian DEVLIN for another Pre-HTL run down in St. Louis, Missouri and before he took a road trip. A LONG road trip back home. Thanks Christian. Glad you made it home safe! See you soon.
