  • The devil went down to Georgia, he was looking for a soul to steal.
    He was in a bind 'cause 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 bet 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, '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, your gonna regret, 'cause I'm the best that's ever been."
