"I'd rather be the devil" as written by and Skip James....
I'd rather be the devil and I will leave my woman's ?mane?
Yes, I'd rather be the devil and I will leave my woman's ?mane?
'Cause nothing but the devil knows my baby's
Nothing but the devil knows my baby's
Nothing but the devil knows my baby's name

Well, I laid down last night and I was trying to take my rest
Yes, I laid down last night, I was trying to take my rest
But my mind starts a-rambling like the wild geese in the
My mind starts a-rambling like the wild geese in the
Mind starts a-rambling like the wild geese in the west

The woman I love, though she's evil all the time
Yeah, the woman I love, oh she's evil all the time
Studies so much evil, just add it on
So much evil, just add it on
So much evil, just add it on to mine

The woman I love, I stole her from my own best friend
The woman I love, I stole her from my best friend
But I know you'll get lucky, steal her back
I know you'll get lucky, try to steal her back
I know you'll get lucky, steal her back again
