Subject: Lyr Add: OLD DEVILS DREAM
Here's the way I heard them, but can't remember the source!

Songwriter ???

Young devils find love most every night.
They lie with their dreams in their arms 'til daylight.
They use love like whiskey, their cares to dissolve:
To warm them and charm them, but not to involve.

CHORUS: Old devils dream, all alone it seems.
Old devils dream all alone.
When their devilment is done, all their wildest races run,
Old devils dream all alone.

Now I was a young devil, sturdy and proud.
I used to laugh long; I used to laugh loud.
I laughed when you told me goodbye that last time.
I didn't know how you'd linger on this old devil's mind. CHORUS
