Shut De Do Lyrics

Shut the door, keep out the devil,

You shut the door, keep the devil in the night,

Shut the door, keep out the devil,

You light the candle, everything's alright,

Light the candle, everything's alright.


Oh, when I was a baby child, (shut the door, keep out the devil)

Good and bad was just a game, (shut the door, keep the devil in the night)

Many years and many trials, (shut the door, keep out the devil)

They proved to me they not the same. (shut the door, keep the devil in the night)


I said, shut the door, keep out the devil,

Shut the door, keep the devil in the night,

Shut the door, keep out the devil,

Light the candle, everything's alright,

Light the candle, everything's alright.


Oh, Satan is an evil charmer, (shut the door, keep out the devil)

He's hungry for a soul to hurt, (shut the door, keep the devil in the night)

And without your holy armor, listen to me, (shut the door, keep out the devil)

He will eat you for dessert, yes, he will. (shut the door, keep the devil in the night)


Shut the door, keep out the devil,

Shut the door, keep the devil in the night,

Shut the door, keep out the devil,

Light the candle, everything's alright,

Light the candle, everything's alright.


I said a hey, hey, hey, (shut the door)

Hey, hey, hey, (keep out the devil)

Hey, hey, hey, (you gotta shut the door)

Say a prayer, he won't be back no more.


My mama used to sing this song, (shut the door, keep out the devil)

Oh, poppa used to sing it too, (shut the door, keep the devil in the night)

Jesus called and took them home, (shut the door, keep out the devil)

And so I sing the song for you. (shut the door, keep the devil in the night)


You better listen to me, shut the door, keep out the devil,

You shut the door, keep the devil in the night,

Shut the door, keep out the devil,

Light the candle, everything's alright,

Light the candle, everything's alright,

I said, you shut the door, keep out the devil,

Shut the door, keep the devil in the night,

Shut the door, keep out the devil,

Light the candle, everything's alright,

Light the candle, everything's alright,

Light the candle, everything's alright,

Light the candle, everything's alright.
