Devil Blues

This song is by Sylvester Weaver and appears on the split album Sylvester Weaver Vol. 2 (1927) (1992).

Had a dream while sleeping, found myself way down below, my Lord
I had a dream while sleeping, found myself way down below
Couldn't get to Heaven, Hell's the place I had to go

Devil had me cornered, stuck me with his old pitchfork
Devil had me cornered, stuck me with his old pitchfork
And he put me in an oven, thought he had me for roast pork

Hellhounds start to chasin' me and I was a runnin' fool
Hellhounds start to chase me and I was a runnin' fool
My ankles caught on fire, couldn't keep my puppies cool

Four thousand devils with big tails and sharp horns, my Lordy
Saw a thousand devils with tails and sharp horns
Everyone wandred (sic), tried to step on my corns

For miles around I heard men scream and yell, my Lord
For miles around, heard men scream and yell
Couldn't see a woman, I said, "Lord, ain't this Hell?"
