Devil Blues

VERSE 1
 D5
Well I got the devil blues
G             A           D5
But I ain’t as blue as most people
G
Well I got the devil blues
                            D5
But I ain’t as blue as most people
      G            A
You’ll find the sorry kind
    D                     Bm
Underneath the church house steeple
  G          A       D5
I got the devil blues in me
 
VERSE 2
Some years ago they tried
To baptize me in the river Ohio
Some years ago they tried
To baptize me in the river Ohio
I held that preacher under
His hair turned white
And his heart turned cold
I got the devil blues in me
 
VERSE 3
They put me in the youth hospital
Sayin’ I’d seen too much TV
They put me in the youth hospital
Sayin’ I’d seen too much TV
But all the old folks say
I got the devil inside me
Those mean old devil blues in me
 

VERSE 4
The door to door preacher came
Trying to sell us the word of God
The door to door preacher came
Trying to sell us the word of God
I said friend I done been sold
Handed him Marquis de Sade
I got the devil blues with me
 
VERSE 5
I didn’t see TV ten years
They finally said that I was well
I didn’t see TV ten years
They finally said that I was well
They said I got to church
Or else I’d got to hell
With the devil blues in me
 
VERSE 6
Late one Saturday night
Somebody blew up the church
Late one Saturday night
Somebody blew up the church
They found me at the library
Dogs and guns led their search
I was doing research on the devil blues

VERSE 7
They asked me questions till the dawn
Boy did you set off that dynamite
They asked me questions till the dawn
Boy did you set off that dynamite
I said sir I did not
I held the flashlight
I got the devil blues in me
 
VERSE 8
They said boy who was working with you
I said take a wild guess
They said boy who was working with you
I said take a wild guess
They said that name and shuttered
I smiled and I said yes
I had the devil blues with me
 
VERSE 9
There’s a one way road to heaven
It goes through church and Sunday school
There’s a one way road to heaven
It goes through church and Sunday school
I can make joyful noise
On the toilet stool
I got the devil blues in me
