Me and the Devil Blues

Robert Johnson

Me and the Devil Blues - Robert Johnson -

Early this morning
When you knocked upon my door
Early this morning, ooh,
When you knocked upon my door
And I said hello Satan
I believe it’s time to go

Me and the Devil
Was walkin’ side by side
Me and the Devil, ooh,
Was walking side by side
And I’m goin’ to beat my woman
‘Til I get satisfied

She said you don’t see why
That I would dog ‘round
(Spoken:) Now baby you know you ain’t doin’ me right don’t cha
She say you don’t see why, hoo,
That I would dog ‘round
It must-a be that old evil spirit
So deep down in the ground

You may bury my body
Down by the highway side
(Spoken:) Baby, I don’t care where you bury my body when
I’m dead and gone
You may bury my body, ooh,
Down by the highway side
So my old evil spirit
Can get a Greyhound bus and ride
