"The Devil went down to Georgia..."
#1
The Devil did go down to Georgia, and I've heard this historical account of how Johhny outplayed the Devil and his golden fiddle a jillion times.
My only problem is...I think the Devil's portion of the musical contest is actually far better than Johnny's!
I think the Devil should have won Johnny's soul, as the bet stipulated.

Who's with me?

Stylistically I agree, but it was the band of demons joining in that took the music past that of Johnny's fiddle. So the Devil's own playing alone wasn't enough. Johnny also showed a technical proficiency that the Devil did not.

I think this should clear things up

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

OK... wow.

But - I gotta agree. Johnny didn't have his own band of demons to join in, so technically the Devil cheated... which is not exactly "out of character."


So... now that that's out of the way, can anybody explain, "Chicken in the bread pan, kickin' out dough," to me?

Those are old square dance lerics...I think it suposta be "Chicken in the bread pan pickin' out dough..Big pig rootin' up the little tater now.

They must of been taking about the troubles of farm animals at the time .lol

When i seen charlie play this live when i was 10 years old " first show i ever been too" during the fiddle solo, Some arse hole jumped on stage and grabbed the bandana off charlies hat..He turned and gave him a big cowboy boot off stage "boom!!" and kept playing..He did not miss a note!! But he did write later how upset he was cause he had that bandana a long time...Which that sucks ass..I don't think he ever played here again.

Those are old square-dancing routines ( I think?).

Johnny should have hired the demons as his backup band. Too cool...

And I always thought that it was interesting that the devil had to go 'down' to get to Georgia. Smile


What I never understood was if there were five big dudes, a drunk chick and a fella with green teeth why was he only going to fight 3 of them?

well seeing how the Devil is all about letting you do what you want to regardless of the consequences, teenage sex, drugs, gays etc it would appear he is a liberal. Well that said he may have been from Washington DC or the northeast or left coast? Big Grin
