This is a brand new song by Augustana, that hasn't even been released yet i don't think.

Not certain on whether he strums or picks, that's why im unsure of whether it's two
or one! So i put down both strummed and arpeggiated!

LYRICS (7:36) I pull up my blanket Up to my ears In an old irish prison Stained with tears Im trapped in a jail cell Black and grey But i aint afraid man So see that i leave But i aint been locked here More than my crime He used to be walking With faith by my side I went and lost it On a warm summer night The night that i saw him With the devil's blue eyes See i was a good man A long time ago Born and raised in surreals ?? New Mexico See i had a mother Sweet as could be She said son don't you follow Your daddy's bad ways So i found a woman She was my wife We made a living And a beautiful child Damn we were happy With plenty of cash But then my sweet lord Took my babies and left See I was just walking On a cold winter eve Took the train home then And took out my keys Unlocked the front door Only to find My wife and my babies And the blood had run dry He raped them and shot them And shot them through twice I screamed through the ceiling And ran through the house I saw his face covered With the blood of my wife That's when i saw him With the devils blue eyes And before i could catch him He had escaped I got on my knees And i started to pray I said what have we done here To deserve such pain Sweet lord you're a liar And i'm alone once again Lord if i may ask you For one simple thing I'd pray that i'd find him You did these deeds I'd kill that man slowly So he no longer breathes Oh and if i am hell bound Then so let it be Some 40 years later I was barely alive Travelling the world With revenge by my side I was passing by Dublin With a carnival ride And that's when i saw him With the devil's blue eyes It took me a moment To round supplies So i pulled out my black gun And i shot him through twice He fell down quite slowly No resistance or tears He looked in to my eyes And then it was clear As i watched him there dying A thought came to mind What good had i done here I'd taken his life As blood run across me And soaked me through, right Then i'd become The Devil's blue eyes So i pull up my blanket Up to my ears In an old irish prison Stained with tears And although i've done wrong And cursed the skies So now i will die here With the Devil's blue eyes THE END!
