Jeremiah Tall - The Devil and Daved

I was walking down by the river
I saw a woman who prayed through song and dance
I wondered has she ever seen the Devil
I've been made into a fool but is never take that chance

I cried
Hey lady
Have you ever made sin
Have you ever played with voodoo dolls and pins

She walked up and sat down
She began to tell me the story of the Devil and Daved
Oh Daved was a stable boy
Who worked all night and day
And he fell hard for a girl
Who God said stay away

And he didn't have any money
And he didn't have any luck
And he never quite got those looks that he wants

I cried
Hey Daved
Have you ever made sin
Have you ever played with voodoo dolls and pins

Well he sold his soul
And he sold his land
And he sold his soul for that love he never had

Now Daved he'd have some regrets
Well he had the woman he loved but now was in debt
Oh he and his wife
They had a beautiful boy
But when they went to name him well the Devil stood poised
He said
Daved I gave you love
Daved you signed in blood
Daved you owe me your first born son

I cried
Hey Daved
Don't you ever made sin
Don't you ever played with voodoo dolls and pins

Now Daved oh he’d have a choice
He could run like hell or fight the Devil for his boy
Well, he reached into his deck
Throw down his best
And the Devil was shocked and stunned with what he saw

He said
Daved I never rest
And on the day of your final breath
I'll be there to take you down to hell
Well you might fool the Devil for a minute but it never ends well
Well you might fool the Devil for a minute but you'll end up in hell
