      About "The Devil Came From Kansas"

      Lyrics for Procol Harum - "The Devil Came From Kansas"

      The Devil came from Kansas. Where he went to I can't say
      Though I teach I'm not a preacher, and I aim to stay that way
      There's a monkey riding on my back, been there for some time
      He says he knows me very well but he's no friend of mine

      I am not a humble pilgrim
      There's no need to scrape and squeeze
      And don't beg for silver paper
      When I'm trying to sell you cheese

      The Devil came from Kansas. Where he went to I can't say
      If you really are my brother then you'd better start to pray
      For the sins of those departed and the ones about to go
      There's a dark cloud just above us, don't tell me 'cause I know

      I am not a humble pilgrim
      There's no need to scrape and squeeze
      And don't beg for silver paper
      When I'm trying to sell you cheese

      No I never came from Kansas, don't forget to thank the cook
      Which reminds me of my duty: I was lost and now I look
      For the turning and the signpost and the road which takes you down
      To that pool inside the forest in whose waters I shall drown

      I am not a humble pilgrim
      There's no need to scrape and squeeze
      And don't beg for silver paper
      When I'm trying to sell you cheese
