El Diablo se pasó por Georgia...

...buscando desesperadamente almas para el infierno,dispuesto incluso a hacer un trato.Se encuentre con un chavalín,Johnny tocando el violín de cojones,y le dice que el también toca,y le reta,avisándole que nadie puede ganarle.Johnny acepta aunque le advierte a Satán que se arrepentirá,ya que él es el mejor que jamás existirá.Si Johnny gana el diablo le dará un violín de oro,pero si gana el Diablo se llevará el alma del chico al Infierno.¿Quien ganará?

Una genialidad de Primus:Les Claypool,Larry Lalonde y Brian Mantia.Con la colaboración especial de Mark Haggard(slide y voz de Johnny),Brian Kehoe en el papel del Diablo y Violina Misteriosa(sic) al violín.

The devil went down to Georgia, he was looking for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind: he was willin' to make a deal.
When he came across this young man sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot.
And the devil jumped upon 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'd 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 bet a fiddle of gold against your soul, 'cos 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, 'cos I'm the best that's ever been."

Johnny you rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard.
'Cos hells broke loose in Georgia and the devil deals it hard.
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 resined up his bow.
And he pulled the bow across his 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 if you'll sit down in that chair, right there, and let me show you how its done."

Fire on the moun, run boys, run.
The devil's in the house of the risin' sun.
Chicken in the bread pin, pickin' out dough.
"Granny, does your dog bite?"
"No, child, no."

The devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat.
He laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny's feet.
Johnny said: "Devil just come on back if you ever want to try again.
"I told you once, you son of a bitch, I'm the best that's ever been."

And he played fire on the mount, run boys, run.
The devil's in the house of the risin' sun.
Chicken in the bread pin pickin' out dough.
"Granny, does your dog bite?"
"No, child, no."

Jay: Hoy me he bajado a Lucinda. Va a ser mi primera vez. Mañana me levantaré temprano, me haré mi tazón de café y me sentaré frente al balcón a ver la nieve blanquísima y escuchar su disco. Y tal vez tenga un momento mágico de esos que ta acompañan para siempre. Gracias a ti. Nada, quería contartelo.
