BAT OUT OF HELL
© 2000 & 2017 by Jeff Platts

Verse 1
Get on out of my way!
Can’t you see how busy I am just runnin’ away?
There’s no need for me to shout about it,
I’ve been freed, that’s all I know about it,
Give me speed to keep runnin’ away,
Here’s Why!

Chorus
I was flirtin’ with sin when I stumbled and fell,
Then Satan himself put me under his spell,
Jesus set me free, He let me out of my cell,
Now I’m runnin’ from the devil like a bat out of hell.

Verse 2
Can’t you hear me pray?
Lord give me the strength I need to keep runnin away,
There’s no use to get upset about it,
It’s old news you must have read about it,
These old shoes they just keep runnin’ away,
Look Out!

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
I’d love to stay!
But I’m too doggone busy just runnin’ away!
There’s no time to stop and chat about it,
I don’t mind if you get mad about it,
I’ll be fine if I keep runnin’ away,
Watch out!

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4
I saw you today!
If I were you I’d start thinkin’ real hard about runnin’ away!
Get a clue, don’t make a stink about it,
It’s all true you’d better think about it,
He wants you, so start runnin’ away, Don’t delay!

Repeat Chorus

Last Chorus
I was flirtin’ with sin when I stumbled and fell,
Then Satan himself put me under his spell,
Jesus set me free, He let me out of my cell,
Now I’m runnin’ from the devil like a bat out of hell
I’m runnin’ from the devil like a bat out of hell
I’m runnin’ from the devil like a bat out of hell.
