DmThe devil went down to Georgia 
he was looking for a soul to steal 
He was in a bind cuz he was way behind 
he was willin' to make a deal 
When he came across this young man 
sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot 
And the devil jumped apon a hickory stump 
and said boy let me tell you whatBb C Dm 
DmI bet you didn't know it 
but I'm a fiddle player too 
And if you'd care to make a dare 
I'll make a bet with you 
Now you play a pretty good fiddle boy 
but give the devil his due 
I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul 
cuz I think I'm better than youBb C Dm 
The boy said my name's Johnny 
and it might be a sin 
But I'll take your bet your gonna regret 
cuz I'm the best that's ever been 
 
DmJohnny your rosin up your bow 
and Cplay your fiddle hard 
Cuz Gmhells broke loose in Georgia 
and the Dmdevil deals it hard 
And if you win you get this shiny Gmfiddle made of gold 
But Aif you lose the devil gets your soul 
 
Violin solo:  Dm  C   Dm C Bb A G F E Dm 
 
DmThe devil opened up his case 
and he said I'll start this show 
And fire flew from his fingertips 
as he rosined up his bow 
And he pulled the bow across his strings 
and it made an evil hiss 
Then a band of demons joined in 
and it sounded something like thisA C Dm 
 
Devil Solo:  Dm C Dm (7 times) then G A Bb C Db Dm  C Db Dm 
 
DmWhen the devil finished Johnny said 
well you're pretty good ol' sun 
But sit down in that chair right there 
and let me show you how its done 
 
DFire on the mountain run boys run 
CThe devil's in the house of the risin' sun 
DChicken in the bread pin pickin' out dough 
CGranny does your dog bite no  child  no 
 
Solo:  Dm  C  Dm  C  Dm  C  A A A  A C Dm 
 
DmThe devil bowed his head 
because he knew that he'd been beat 
He laid that golden fiddle 
on the ground at Johnny's feet 
Johnny said devil just come on back 
if you ever want to try again 
'Cause I told you once you son of a bitch 
I'm the best that's ever been 
 
And he played Dfire on the mountain run boys run 
Cthe Devils in the house of the risin' sun 
DChicken in the bread pin pickin' out dough 
CGranny does your dog bite no child no 
 
Outro solo  Dm  C  Dm  C  Dm  C Dm Em G A G F E  
Dm C Bb A  Dm C Bb A  Dm   C Dm
