North Mississippi Allstars – Keep The Devil Down lyrics
Dirty Red's got his pockets full of them things
Standing on a corner in Holly Springs
They busted Dirty Red in Hickory Flat, y'all
Old Dirty is a soldier, Red ain't no rat

If you raise the devil
It can't keep the devil down
And now I've found
The starry crown

If you raise the devil
It can't keep the devil down
Don't look him in the eye
The devil is alive

Them things got me snapping like a fighting dog
Drinking gun powder from a rotten log
Old habits die hard, I'm damn sure stuck in my way
It's the nature of the beast that one of these days

I'm a gonna raise the devil
It can't keep the devil down
If you've found
The starry crown

And you raise a devil
It can't keep the devil down
Don't look him in the eye
The devil is alive

If you raise the devil
It can't keep the devil down
And now I've found
The starry crown

If you raise the devil
It can't keep the devil down
Don't look him in the eye
The devil is alive
