Recorded by Kitty Wells
Written by Eddie Pleasant
[C]Jesus loved the devil out of [G7]me
Yes Jesus loved the devil out of [C]me
When He took me by the hand
Ol’ [F]Satan just gave up and ran
[G7]Jesus loved the devil out of [C]me
Life for me was filled with sin and [G7]shame
The devil had a plan to claim my [C]name
But just before I crossed the eternal [F]line
[G7]Jesus said no Satan this one’s [C]mine
No will to live my future looked so [G7]cold
The devil stood there waiting for my [C]soul
But just before I walked into his [F]arms
The [G7]king of kings my king of kings
Reached [F]for my hand and [G7]saved me from all [C]harm
repeat #1 x3[/chordpress]

Who is Kitty Wells?
– Ellen Muriel Deason (August 30, 1919 – July 16, 2012), known professionally as Kitty Wells, was an American pioneering female country music singer. She broke down a barrier to women in country music with her 1952 hit recording “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels”, which also made her the first female country singer to top the U.S. country charts and turned her into the first female country superstar. â€œIt Wasnâ€™t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angelsâ€ would also be her first of several pop crossover hits. Wells is the only artist to be awarded top female vocalist awards for 14 consecutive years. Her chart-topping hits continued until the mid 1960s, paving the way for and inspiring a long list of female country singers who came to prominence in the 1960s.
Wells ranks as the sixth most successful female vocalist in the history of the Billboard country charts, according to historian Joel Whitburn’s book The Top 40 Country Hits. In 1976, she was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1991, Wells became the third country music artist, after Roy Acuff and Hank Williams, and the eighth woman to receive the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Wells’ success and influence on country music garnered her the title “Queen of Country Music”.
