Lyrics

Early this mornin'
When you knocked upon my door
Early this mornin'
Ooh, when you knocked upon my door
And I said
«Hello, Satan, I believe it’s time to go»
Me and the devil
Was walkin' side by side
Me and the devil
Ooh, was walkin' side by side
I’m goin' to beat my woman
Until I get satisfied
She say, «You don’t see why
That I will dog 'round»
My baby, you know
You ain’t doin' me right now
She say, «You don’t see why
Ooh, that I be dog 'round»
It must be that old evil spirit
So deep down in the ground
You may bury my body
Down by the highway side
Baby, I don’t care where you bury my body
When I’m dead and gone
You may bury my body
Ooh, down by the highway side
So my old evil spirit
Can catch a Greyhound bus and ride
