      About "Devil Went Down to Georgia"

      Lyrics for Charlie Daniels - "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 willin' to make a deal

      When he came upon this young man
      Sawin' on a fiddle and playin' 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 a pretty good fiddle, boy
      But give the devil his due
      I'll 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 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 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

      Then he pulled the bow across the strings
      And it made an evil hiss
      And 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 it's done."

      He played Fire on the Mountain run boys, run
      The devil's in the House of the Rising Sun
      Chicken in a 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
      I done told you once you son of a bitch
      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 a bread pan pickin' out dough
      Granny, does your dog bite? No child, no
