Devil Woman    (1962)

I told Mary about us, told her about our great sin
Mary just cried and forgave me, Mary took me back again
She said if I wanted my freedom, I could be free evermore
But I don't want to be, and I don't want to see Mary cry anymore.

Devil woman, devil woman, let go of me
Devil woman, let me be
Just leave me alone,
I want to go home.

Mary is waiting and weeping alone in our shack by the sea
Even after I hurt her, Mary's still in love with me
Devil woman, it's over, trapped no more by your charms
I don't want to stay, I want to get away, women let go of my arms.

Devil woman, devil woman, let go of me
Devil woman, let me be
Just leave me alone,
I want to go home.

Devil woman, you're evil, like the dark coral reef
Like the winds that bring high tides, you bring sorrow and grief
You made me so ashamed to face Mary, barely had the strength to tell
Skies are not so black, Mary took me back, Mary has broken your spell.

Devil woman, devil woman, let go of me
Devil woman, let me be
And leave me alone,
I want to go home.

Runnin' along by the seashore, runnin' as fast as I can.
Even the seagulls are happy, glad I'm coming home again.
Never again will I ever, cause another tear to fall,
Down the beach I see what belongs to me, the one I want most of all.

Oh, devil woman, devil woman, let go of me
Devil woman, let me be
And leave me alone,
I want to go home.
