"I'd rather be the devil" as written by and Skip James....
I'd rather be the devil,
Than I would be my woman's man;
Yes I'd rather be the devil,
Than I would be my woman's man.
'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 mind.
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 a little rest.
Well my mind starts rambling
Like a wild geese in the -
Well my mind starts rambling
Like a wild geese in the -
Well my mind starts rambling
Like a wild geese in the west.
Yes the woman that I love,
Well she's evil all the time;
Yeah, the woman that I love,
She's evil all the time.
She did so much evil,
Just to have it on -
So much evil,
Just to have it on -
So much evil,
Just to have it on and on.
And the woman that I love,
Stole her from my best friend;
The woman I love,
I stole her from my best friend.
But I know he'll get lucky,
Steal her back -
I know he'll get lucky
Trying to steal her back -
I know he'll get lucky,
Steal her back again.
