Devil Went Down to Georgia
(C.Daniel - T.Crain - T.DiGregorio -
F.Edwards - C.Hayward - J.Marshall)

The devil went down to Georgia,
He was looking for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind
he was willin' to make a deal.
When he came across this young man sawin'
on a fiddle and playin' it hot.
And the devil jumped upon 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 a pretty good fiddle, boy,
but give the devil his due
I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul,
'cos 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, your gonna regret,
'cos I'm the best that's ever been

Johnny rosin up your bow
and play your fiddle hard.
'Cos hells 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 opened up his case and he said
I'll start this show
And fire flew from his fingertips
as he rosined 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 ol' son
But if you'll sit down in that chair,
right there,
and let me show you how its done

Fire on the mountain run boys, run
The devil's in the house of the risin' sun.
Chicken in the bread pin, pickin' out dough
Granny, does your dog bite? No, child, no
The devil bowed his head because
he knew that he'd been beat.
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
I told you once, you son of a bitch,
I'm the best that's ever been

And he played
