It's been ten long years since the devil laid his fiddle at Johnny's feet
And it burned inside his mind the way he suffered that defeat
To tempt the fiddle player for he's just a mortal man
"I thought we had this settled, I'm the best there's ever been."
Johnny did you ever know that time keeps marching on
The devil's back in Georgia will you stand up to the test

But give me half a minute an' I'll get this fiddle back in tune"
The devil grabbed the golden fiddle out of Johnny's hand and said

'Cos practice is the only cure for the predicament he's in"
"Now devil it would be a sin for you to get my bow

The devil walks the land and plays a fiddle made of gold
The devil wants his daddy's very soul?
"Before we play I want to thank you for letting God's own Word ring true
"Well you get your fiddle devil if you think that you can win

Mama's little baby loves shortnin' bread
But Johnny is the best that's ever been
