Devil In Disguise
J.J. Cale Lyrics


From the California shore to New York City
The beat don't never stop
You can hear it on the radio anywhere you go
It's steady as the rhythm of a clock
It cuts through the noise of the city life
It won't seem to go away
It's the devil in disguise I tell you no lies
My fingers do the walking everyday

Yonder comes a young girl she wants to take a whirl
She thinks it's all a dream
She got rock and roll way down in her soul
She wants to know where's the limousine
Get up honey let your mama sit down
You're too young anyway
The devil in disguise give her the prize
Then you can carry her away
When the road I travel starts to unravel

Every which way it goes
The beat starts to press on my bullet proof vest
And my high turns out to be low
Give me my guitar I'm going to go far
Let me see it let me hold it in my hand
I'm the devil in disguise I tell you no lies
I'm playing in a rock 'n roll band

This is the coolest rocker who ever lived and a genius songwriter who made so many rockers famous. He didn't want the spotlight but he sure gave it to so many others! RIP JJ!

JOHN MCCLINTOCK

That's right. . . and Christine surely helped too !

chrisput1024

Can count Clapton and Mark Knopfler as influenced by him. That's pretty lofty company. Who is the red headed guitarist that's in all of his videos?

Kevin Boyden

Brenner Holloman

I saw JJ at a club in Boston, he played for almost 3 hours. Then he stayed there and talked to everyone that wanted to talk to him, he was so nice. Rest In Peace JJ, you made a difference

@Troy Taylor The night he played at The Paradise in Boston Clapton was playing the Fleet Bank Center, it was like $200 to see Clapton and $20 to see JJ. Clapton was pissy that night, played an hour w/no encore. My friends were pissed too!
I found JJ because I always read LP jackets. I kept coming across his name everywhere from Santana to Lynyrd Skynyrd to Clapton. JJ was one of a kind musician and a really nice guy. Rory Gallagher was the same way. RIP

Imagine turning this on and seeing the guitar you owned and traded J.J. for the guitar you currently have! That Ovation he has there in his lap was mine! I traded it to him one day in a guitar store in Tulsa, OK by chance when we just happened to be at the store at the same time! I didn't even know who he was until he left! Until then I had been guilty of not really listening to his music! I do now tho. Sorry to hear he died! Pretty dang sure that guitar is the one I owned and traded him in Tulsa tho!!
