Devil Went Down To Georgia

Charlie Daniels

The devil went down to Georgia he was looking for a soul to steal He was in a bind cuz he was way behind he was willinâ to make a deal When he came across this young man sawinâ on a fiddle and playinâ it hot And the devil jumped âpon a hickory stump and said boy let me tell you what
I bet you didnât know it but Iâm a fiddle player too And if youâd care to make a dare Iâll make a bet with you Now you play a pretty good fiddle boy but give the devil his due I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul cuz I think Iâm better than you The boy said my nameâs Johnny and it might be a sin But Iâll take your bet your gonna regret cuz Iâm the best thatâs ever been
Johnny your rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard Cuz hells broke loose in Georgia and the devil deals it hard And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold But if you lose the devil gets your soul
The devil opened up his case and said Iâll start this show
And fire flew from his fingertips as he rosined up his bow And he pulled the bow across his strings and it made an evil hiss Then a band of demons joined in and it sounded something like this
When the devil finished Johnny said well youâre pretty good olâ sun But sit down in that chair right there and let me show you how its done
Fire on the mount run boys run The devilâs in the house of the risinâ sun Chicken in the bread pin pickinâ out dough Granny does your dog bite no, child, no
The devil bowed his head because he knew that heâd been beat He laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnnyâs feet Johnny said devil just come on back if you ever want to try again I told you once you son of a bitch Iâm the best thatâs ever been
He played fire on the mount run boys run the Devils in the house of the risinâ sun Chicken in the bread pin pickinâ out dough Granny does your dog bite no child no
