Bad boy Brantley Gilbert has won us over countless times already with his fantastic songs that he both performs and pens himself. He's a songwriting genius and it's no different when it comes to "Hell On An Angel". Brantley's songs never cease to pierce our hearts, making us bleed happiness or cry tears, depending on which songs we're thankfully submitted to. 

"Hell On An Angel" was released in 2011 on Gilbert's Halfway To Heaven (Deluxe Edition) album. Written by Brantley and Jeremy Spillman, it talks about how the narrator, a "bad boy" (go figure), that is described as being "baptized in dirty water by the hands of the devil himself" is won over by the tenderness and love of a woman that teaching him new tricks, like cuddling, and has him "purrin' like a kitten" and laying down all his guns.

It's really a bittersweet sort of song that many people could probably relate to. Brantley sings it so well, as usual, driving his audience wild.

LYRICS BELOW

They say I was baptized in dirty water
By the hands of the devil himself
Between the banks of a whiskey river
Beside the highway to hell

I got scars on my heart and knuckles
I got debts that I ain't pay
Yeah but I got a blessing that was sent down from heaven,
Baby you're my saving grace

Girl you've got an outlaw, ready to lay down all my guns
A dirty old hound dog, learnin' new tricks like cuddlin' up,
You've got a hellcat purrin' like a kitten,
You've got a sinner down on his knees
It had to be hell on an angel
Lovin' the devil out of me

Tell me how did you get under this leather skin I wear
Beneath the callouses and tattoos around the walls I built down there
To this heart I've long kept guarded, all alone I was free to fly
But it takes an angel to fly with a free bird
Baby we've got the sky

Girl you've got an outlaw, ready to lay down all my guns
A dirty old hound dog, learnin' new tricks like cuddlin' up,
You've got a hellcat purrin' like a kitten,
You've got a sinner down on his knees
It had to be hell on an angel
Lovin' the devil out of me

Hell on an angel
Come on boys

Girl you've got an outlaw, ready to lay down all my guns
A dirty old hound dog, learnin' new tricks like cuddlin' up,
You've got a hellcat purrin' like a kitten,
You've got a sinner down on his knees
It had to be hell on an angel
Lovin' the devil out of me
