Shut that door and keep that devil out
Shut that door and keep that devil out
You ain't got no business being around
Shut that door and keep that devil out
Tell all of your friends around this town
To shut that door and keep that devil out

Here we go

I went down to Memphis
Memphis, Tennessee
Looking for some barbeque
With that devil chasing me

I ain't going down
Ain't no way I'm going down
He may got this world on a string
But he ain't getting me

Shut that door and keep that devil out
Shut that door and keep that devil out
You ain't got no business being around
Shut that door and keep that devil out
Tell all of your friends around this town
To shut that door and keep that devil out

Here we go

(Instrumental Break)

I went down to New Orleans
Wearing Sunday best
Searching for some Jesus
Found a devil in that blue dress

I ain't going down
Ain't no way I'm going down
He may got this world on a string
But he ain't getting me

Shut that door and keep that devil out
Shut that door and keep that devil out
You ain't got no business being around
Shut that door and keep that devil out
Tell all of your friends around this town
To shut that door and keep that devil out

Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

Shut that door and keep that devil out
Shut that door and keep that devil out
You ain't got no business being around
Shut that door and keep that devil out
Tell all of your friends around this town
To shut that door and keep that devil out

Tell all of your friends around this town
To shut that door and keep that devil out
