DEVIL'S GONNA GET (GIT) YOU Porter Grainger Bessie Smith rec August 24th 1928 New York It's a long, long lane that has no turnin', There's a fire that always keeps on burnin', Mister Devil down below, pitchfork in his hand, And that's where you are goin' to go, do you understand? Devil's gonna git you, Devil's gonna git you, Oh, the Devil's gonna git you, man, Just as sure as you born! Devil's gonna git you, Devil's gonna git you, Oh, the Devil's gonna git you, The way you carryin' on! You go away, stay for weeks, On your doggone spree, Come back home, get in my bed, And turn your back on me! Oh, the Devil's gonna git you, I mean the Devil's gonna git you, Man, the Devil's gonna git you, Sure as you born! Dirty two-timer! Dirty two-timer! Dirty two-timer! You ain't comin' clean. Oh, the Devil's gonna git you, I mean the Devil's gonna git you, Oh, the Devil's gonna git you, You know what I mean! I don't want no two-time stuff >From my regular man, Don't want nothin' that's been used, 'Cause it's secondhand. The Devil's gonna git you, Oh, the Devil's gonna git you, Man, the Devil's gonna git you, Sure as you born to die. (Contributed by Peter Akers - July 2008)
