The Charlie Daniels Band – The Devil Went Down To New York City lyrics

The Devil came down on nyc, He was lookin for souls to steal.
And he was in a bind, 'Cause he was way behind with an arab he'd made a deal.
When he killed our own on American soil, We knew it was an evil plot.
Bush stepped upon that podium and said, "Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it but we got plans of our own too.
And if you care to take a dare? I'll make a bet with you.
You may have begun this battle boy, but give America it's due.
We're gonna find you no matter where you go. We'll win this war against you. "

The Marine said:
"My name's Johnny and this is where I come in.
I'm part of this bet your gonna regret.
'Cause we're the best that's ever been'.
Airforce load up our planes and bomb those arabs hard.
'Cause hell's broke loose in America.
Bush called out the national guard. And when we win you'll not see those shiny streets of gold.
You'll have lost, now the Devil's got your soul. "

The Navy jumped on our ships and said: "We'll start this show".
Fire flew from their turrets as they struck a mighty blow.
The Army marched across the sands and they made an evil hiss.
Then a band of volunteers joined in and it sounded something like this:
"When you attacked America you said "Look what I have done". But just cower there in your hole and let our soldiers show you how it's done."
Fire in the towers, run boys run. America was attacked at the rising sun.
Terrorism's always been a faceless foe: It's gonna be a dogfight don't cha'll know.

The Devil bowed his head cause he knew that he'd been beat.
And he realized our American Spirit he just can not defeat.
Bush said: "Devil just come on back if you ever wanna try again...
I done told you once you Son-Of-A-bitch, we're the best we've ever been! "
