Blues Traveler

The Devil Went Down To Georgia

Original Performer: Charlie Daniels Band

 

The Devil went down to Georgia, he was looking for a soul to steal

He was in a bind, cause he was way behind

And he was willing to make a deal

 

Well he come across a young man sawing on a fiddle and he played it hot

The Devil jumped up on a hickory stump

And said "Boy, let me tell you what

 

In case you didn't know it, I'm a fiddle player too

And if you care to make a dare

I'll make a bet with you

 

Now you play pretty good fiddle, son but give the Devil his due

I'll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul

Cause I think I'm better than you"

 

Well the boy said "My name's Johnny, and it might be a sin

But I'll take your bet you're gonna regret

Cause I'm the best there's ever been"

 

Johnny rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard

Cause hell's broke loose in Georgia

And the Devil deals the cards

 

And if you win you'll get this shiny fiddle made of gold

But if you lose the Devil gets your soul

The Devil opened up his case, and said, "I'll start this show"

And fire flew from his finger tips as he rosined up his bow

When he pulled that bow across the strings, it made an evil hiss

And a band of demons joined in, it sounded just like this

 

When the Devil finished, Johnny said, "Well you're pretty good old son

But just sit down in that chair right there and let me show you how it's done"

 

He played Fire on the Mountain, run, boys, run

The Devil's in the house with the rising sun,

Chicken in the breadpan picking out dough,

Granny does your dog bite, "No, child, no"

 

The Devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat

And he laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny's feet

And Johnny said, "Devil, come on back if you ever want to try again

But I told you once, you son of a bitch, I'm the best there's ever been!"

 

He played Fire on the Mountain, run, boys, run

The Devil's in the house with the rising sun

Chicken in the breadpan picking out dough

Granny does your dog bite, "No, child, no"
