me and the devil
walkin’  side by side

devil say
“why you been so bad?”

i look at him an’  say
“i was  just tryin’  to get by”

devil,  he shook his head
continue on his way

me and the devil
walkin’  side by side

i say
“what’d i do that was all that bad?”

devil,  he say
“why you even gotta ask that?”

devil,  he shook his head
continue on his way

me and the devil
walkin’  side by side

devil,  he look at me an’ say
“don’t fool me none…..     you know what you did”

i turn to him an’  say
“yeah,  but i had one helluva ride!”

devil,  he shook his head
continue on his way

me and the devil
walkin’  side by side

“Me And The Devil”   Gil Scott Heron

lyrics ~

Early this mornin’
When you knocked upon my door
Early this mornin’
When you knocked upon my door
An’  I say  “Hello, Satan
I believe it’s time to go.”

Me and the Devil
Walkin’  side by side
Me and the Devil
Walkin’  side by side

And I’m going to see my woman
Till I get satisfied
She say she don’t see why
You dog me around
Don’t see why
You keep on doggin’  me around

Must be that old evil spirit
Deep down in the ground
You may bury my body
Down by the highway sign
You may bury my body
Down by the highway sign
So my old evil spirit
Can take the Greyhound bus and ride
