    Wise bit of editing there, BMG.

    Maybe we just don't have the music either.

    Actually its not even for me, I don't play fiddle or whatever. Someone had to learn it last night.
    I'll just let them learn it themselves.

  11. The Devil Went Down To Georgia*

    The devil went down to Georgia
    He was looking for a soul to steal
    And he was in a bind
    'Cause he was way behind
    And was willin' to make a deal
    When he came upon a boy playing

    on a fiddle and playin' it hot
    And the devil jumped up on 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 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'll 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."

    Johnny rosin up your bow and play your
    fiddle hard 'Cause hell's broke loose in Georgia
    And the devil deals the cards
    And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold
    But if you lose the devil gets your soul.

    The devil opened up his case and he said,
    "I'll start this show."
    And fire flew from his fingertips

    As he rosined up his bow
    And he pulled the bow across the strings
    And it made an evil hiss
    Then a band of demons joined in
    And it sounded something like this

    When the devil finished Johnny said,
    "Well you're pretty good ol' son!
    But sit down in that chair right there
    And let me show you how it's done!"
    Fire on the mountain, run boys run
    Devil's in the house of the rising sun
    Chickens in the breadpan, picking out dough
    Granny does your dog bite? No, child, no

    The devil bowed his head
    Because he knew that he'd been beat,
    And he laid that golden fiddle
    On the ground at Johnny's feet
    Johnny said, "Devil, just come on back
    if you ever wanna try again.
    I done told you once,
    You son-of-a-gun,
    I'm the best that's ever been!"

    He played:
    Fire on the mountain, run boys run
    Devil's in the house of the rising sun
    Chickens in the breadpan, picking out dough
    Granny does your dog bite? No, child, no
