  • Primus - The Devil Went Down To Georgia
  • ***************************************
  • The devil went down to Georgia
  • He was lookin' for a soul to steal
  • He was in a bind 'cause he was way behind
  • And he was willing to make a deal
  • When he came across this young man
  • Sawing on a fiddle and playing it hot
  • And the devil jumped up on a hickory stump
  • And said, "Boy let me tell you what
  • "I guess you didn't know it
  • But I'm a fiddle player too
  • And if you'd care to take a dare
  • I'll make a bet with you"
  • "Now you play pretty good fiddle, son
  • But give the devil his due
  • I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul
  • 'Cause I think I'm better than you"
  • The boy said "My name's Johnny
  • And it might be a sin
  • But I'll take your bet and you're gonna regret
  • 'Cause I'm the best that's ever been"
  • Johhny you resin 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 get this shiny fiddle made of gold
  • But if you lose
  • The devil gets your soul
  • The devil openned up his case
  • And he said "I'll start this show"
  • And fire flew from his fingertips
  • As he resined up his bow
  • And he pulled the bow across the 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 you're pretty good, old son
  • But sit down in that chair right there
  • And let me show you how its done"
  • {Refrain}
  • Fire on the mountain, run boys run
  • The devil's in the house of the rising sun
  • Chicken in the bread pan pickin' 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
  • Johnny said "Devil, just come on back
  • If you ever want to try again
  • But I told you once, you son of a *****
  • I'm the best that's ever been"
  • He played
  • Fire on the mountain, run boys run
  • The devil's in the house of the rising sun
  • Chicken in the bread pan pickin' out dough
  • Granny does your dog bite, no child no
