The 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 willing to make a deal
When he came across this young man
Sawing on a fiddle and playing it hot
And the devil jumped up on a hickory stump
And said, "Boy let me tell you what"

/ Dm - / : / Dm AmC Dm - /

"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 pretty good fiddle, boy
But give the devil his due
I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul
