Waltzing With Sin

Waltzing with sin is
Not the dance ticket you want.
It's not good for you.

I don't know who wrote "Waltzing With Sin." I've seen it credited to truck-driver songwriter Red Sovine as well as Mr. Hell-Raiser/Womanizer/Drinker/Born-Again Christian preacher Sonny Burns. Bob Dylan's version was recorded during the 1967 Basement Tapes sessions and is available on volume 11 of the Bootleg Series.

Someday you'll find
That the world's left you out
No true love, no nothing
Just roaming about

Parties and people
And a cold heart within
And each time you're dancing
You're waltzing with sin

You're Satan made over
In perfect disguise
Unfaithful, unworthy
And oh so unwise

I pity the heart
Of the next guy you win
Like me you'll be losing
While waltzing with sin
