From the california shore to new york city
The beat don’t never stop
You can hear it on the radio anywhere you go
It’s steady as the rhythm of a clock
It cuts through the noise of the city life
It won’t seem to go away
It’s the devil in disguise I tell you no lies
My fingers do the walking everyday
Yonder comes a young girl she wants to take a whirl
She thinks it’s all a dream
She got rock and roll way down in her soul
She wants to know where’s the limousine
Get up honey let your mama sit down
You’re too young anyway
The devil in disguise give her the prize
Then you can carry her away
When the road I travel starts to unravel
Every which way it goes
The beat starts to press on my bullet proof vest
And my high turns out to be low
Give me my guitar I’m going to go far
Let me see it let me hold it in my hand
I’m the devil in disguise I tell you no lies
I’m playing in a rock ’n roll band
