    Lyrics

    I used to live with the whiskey
    And the good time and the ladies of the night
    Then the whiskey took control
    Left me waltzing with the witches in my mind

    But imaginary bottles won't be everywhere
    To haunt me like before
    'Cos I'm not dancing with those demons
    I'm not dealing with that devil anymore

    So, go to sleep my weary lady
    Heaven knows you've done your chore
    You were sent here just to save me
    I'm not dancing with those demons
    I'm not dealing with that devil anymore

    It don't matter where you came from
    All I know is that you gave me back my pride
    You reached out your hand and saved a man
    Who strayed about as far as he could slide

    And you probably came from heaven
    Who else could've sent you but the Lord
    I'm not dancing with those demons
    I'm not dealing with that devil anymore

    So, go to sleep my weary lady
    Heaven knows you've done your chore
    You were sent here just to save me
    I'm not dancing with those demons
    I'm not dealing with that devil anymore

    Yeah, go to sleep my weary lady
    Heaven knows you've done your chore
    You were sent here just to save me
    I'm not dancing with those demons
    I'm not dealing with that devil anymore, yeah

    Yeah, go to sleep my weary lady
    Heaven knows you've done your chore
    You were sent here just to save me
    And I'm not dancing with those demons
    I'm not dealing with that devil anymore
