CHORUS
Half of my blood is Cain's blood
Half of my blood is Abel's
One eye looks to Heaven
One eye looks for trouble
Sweet mother, she sang in the Sunday choir
On her head was a halo, she spoke brimstone and fire
Daddy lived by the bottle, Daddy died by the barn
Well, he froze one night, Mama said "Serves him
right"
"The devil can keep him warm"
CHORUS
Guess I always saw myself as a simple man
But there's a man in the mirror I don't understand
Every day I fight it, but I know down deep
It's the secrets I've been keeping
Rising from their sleep
CHORUS
There's an angel and a devil playing tug of war with
my soul (Half of my blood is Cain's blood)
The battle rages on each and every day (Half of my blood is Abel's)
It's all I can do just to try to maintain control (Half of my blood is
Cain's
blood)
My one and only hope(one and only hope) is to my knees and pray
