Devil Got My Woman
Skip James Lyrics


I'd rather be the devil, to be that woman's man
I'd rather be the devil, to be that woman's man
Aw, nothin' but the devil, changed my baby's mind
Was nothin' but the devil, changed my baby's mind

I laid down last night, laid down last night
I laid down last night, tried to take my rest
My mind got to ramblin', like a wild geese
From the west, from the west

The woman I love, woman that I loved
Woman I loved, took her from my best friend
But he got lucky, stoled her back again
And he got lucky, stoled her back again

This is as genuine as it gets.  I've never heard Skip James before.  I feel like I've had my head stuck in a hole in the ground.  What a treasure he is.

@Richard Brown I think this is actually 20's but I might be mistaken. It was before Robert Johnson. Johnson was the 30's

Richard Brown

Well, it was 1930.

play all of his, both copied old 78s and the "rediscovery" live & studio sets from 1960s

"The woman I loved." That line, said three times, is the saddest sound a person can make. By the third time, chills. Every time.
