lyrics

Well i tried to stay away from the bottle
But i couldn't 'cos the whiskey was too nice
Wouldn't listen to the preacher or the doctor
'Cos the liquor had me caught up in a vice
So in rides Evil on horseback
And i have to make a sacrifice

Well they say that the horse is a charger
Or a steed that's as black as the grave
But i know that damn horse is a nightmare
Once you've seen it you can never be saved
'Cos when Evil rides in on horseback
Brother, your choice is already made

Well if the dead were still alive, they'd tell you just the same
You can gamble all you want to 'cos it's nothing but a game
When they put you in the picture, they just put you in the frame
And it doesn't really matter who's to blame

'Cos when Evil rides in on horseback
Don't let him call your name
Yes when Evil rides in on horseback
Better run and catch the train
'Cos when Evil rides in on horseback...
