The devil went down to Georgia

Open in Spotify

A delightful redneck tune where the devil is looking for souls in Georgia. He is a bit down on his luck, but he’s not getting any better when he tries to best Johnny and his fiddle in a contest. The devil loses, and the cocky Johnny invites him to come back and try again, anytime.

This might be the only bluegrass song in my entire collection. So for lovers of this, expect nothing more. I do admit, this is nice music, I just didn’t get around buying more.

Charlie Daniels was active as a singer from 1958 onwards. He died two years ago, aged 83.
