Up Jumped The Devil

Nick Cave and the bad seeds

O My O My
 What a wretched life
 I was born on the day
 That my poor mother died
 I was cut from her belly
 With a stanley knife
 My daddy did a jig
 With the drunk midwife

Who's that younder all in flames
 Dragging behind him a sack of chains
 Who's that younder all in flames
 Up jumped the Devil and he staked his claim

O poor heart
 I was doomed from the start
 Doomed to play
 The villians part
 I was the baddest Johnny
 In the apple cart
 My blood was blacker
 Than the of a dead nun's heart

Who's that milling on the courthouse steps
 Nailing my face to the hitching fence
 Who's that milling on the courthouse steps
 Up jumped the Devil and off he crept

O no O no
 Where could I go
 With my hump of trouble
 And my sack of woe
 To the digs and deserts of Mexico
 Where my neck was safe from the lynching rope

Who's that younder laughing at me
 Like I was the brunt of some hilarity
 Who's that younder laughing at me
 Up jumped the Devil 1, 2, 3

Ha-Ha Ha Ha
 How lucky we were
 We hit the cathouse
 And sampled their whares
 We got as drunk
 As a couple of Czars
 One night I spat out
 My lucky stars

Who's that dancing on the jailhouse roof
 Stamping on the ramping with a cloven hoof
 Who's that dancing on the jailhouse roof
 Up jumped the Devil and said "Here is your man and I got a proof"

O no don't go O no
 O slow down Joe
 The righteous part
 I straight as an arrow
 Take a walk
 And you'll find it too narrow
 Too narrow for the likes of me

Who's that hanging from the gallow tree
 His eyes are hollow but he looks like me
 Who's that swinging from the gallow tree
 Up jumped the Devil and took my soul from me

Down we go Down we go Down we go
 The Devil and me Down we go down down down
 Hell fire and flames Down we go Down we go
 To Eternity Down we go We go down down down
 Down we go we go down down down
 Down we go the Devil and me to Eternity
 We go down down down down down ad inferno
