lyrics

A velvet morning rising star shines through Saturn’s rings.
The angel Gabrielle had fell and broken both her wings.
The night was black with an evil eye. She threw daggers at me.
With the Jack of hearts and the queen of spades she stole all my money.

This demon girl is lost beyond control. She’ll break your heart and steal your soul

The gambling wheel was quickly shutdown when she pulled out a gun.
She fired a bullet into the sky and pierced a hole in the sun.
The cavalry came and the Sheriff’s men were told to take her down.
A poker player with a code to the vault, she was not to leave the town.
With high heel boots and looks-to-kill, and wit as sharp as steel.
She looked into the law-makers eyes and they began to kneel.

This demon girl is lost beyond control. She’ll break your heart and steal your soul.

Billy-bob was a deputy, he was green as the grass in spring.
He worked all hours that God did send to buy his girl that ring.
And Gabrielle took a .45 and put it to his head.
He fell into her big brown eyes and took her hand instead.

This demon girl is lost beyond control. She’ll break your heart and steal your soul.

They picked up a Chevy 59 and drove it through the night.
But hard on their tail were the boys in blue, for they had crossed a line.
There’s no way out and they’re cornered in at a cliff on the edge of town.
She put her foot on the gas pedal and they were going down.

This demon girl is lost beyond control. She’ll break your heart and steal your soul.
