The Devil Comes Back To DC ~ Lyric Re-Write

The Devil Comes Back To DC 
Lyric Rewrite
The Devil Comes Back To Georgia

 It's been not even a year
since the devil laid her fiddle at Donnie's feet
And it burned inside Nancy's mind
the way she suffered that defeat
In the darkest pits of hell
Old Nancy hatched an evil plan
To tempt the fiddle player
for he's just a mortal man
"The sin of pride," the devil cried
is what will do you in
"I thought we had this settled,
I'm the best there's ever been."
Donnie did you ever know
that time keeps marching on
The coldest hour is the one
comes just before the dawn
The devil's back in DC
will you stand up to the test
Or will you let the devil be the best?


"In truth I haven't played much
since the end came in Feb
But give me half a minute
an' I'll get this fiddle back in tune"
The devil grabbed the golden fiddle
out of Donnie's hand and said
"Though I'm the fiddle player underground
and I walk upon the land"


"Y'all just better be just turnin' back
if you want this man to win
'Cos practice is the only cure
for the predicament he's in"
"Now Nancy it would be a sin
for you to get my bow
You go on back to hell
and to the White House I will go"


Donnie are you practicing
or will your hands grow cold?
The devil drags the swamp
and plays a fiddle made of booze
Can you hear the people crying,
will he ever know
The devil wants this leader's very soul?


"Before we play I want to thank you
for letting God's own Word ring true
He said you can't be trusted"
"Yes but what you gonna do?"
"Well you get your fiddle Nancy
if you think that you can win
'Cos I beat you once you drunken bitch
and I'm still your President"
John Brown's green, the devil is drunk
Mama's little baby loves shortnin' bread
The devil's dream is that she can win
But Donnie is the best that's ever been

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
