Excellent modern prodigal son story, kind of had a "bad cowboy gone repentant" feel to it. You drew me in at the outset with that ear-catching intro. Nice job on the lyric writing. Cursed virtue - nice internal rhyme. The flute was a nice addition, kind of unexpected. Good instrumentation and I could understand over 90% of the lyrics.

    - Kate Carpenter

Great voice - like the flute sound. Gregorian chants at end vey creative idea

    - Janet Murphy
Lyrics

THE DEVIL'S FOOL

I have a story just to tell you, though my time grows short
I hear the hammering and the nailing as my gallows beckons forth
I fell in with bad companions, thieves and robbers on the run
there's no rest for the wicked and all that live by the gun

CHORUS
And my mother was a Christian, and my father was too
I ran away and cursed their virtue, just to play the devil's fool
Just to play the devil's fool

I began drinking whiskey, rolling dice and playing cards
I cast my eyes on a scarlet woman, Jezebel stole my heart
I needed more and more money, just to gamble and drink my wine
I took a gun and killed a banker, now I'm paying with my life

CHORUS

This is my last request, before they come to take me away
No name needed on my tombstone, just 'A devil's fool here lay'

And my mother prayed for me, and my father prayed too
I pushed away God's Spirit, just to play the devil's fool
