[All right, Skip - wherever you are, this one's for you]

You know, I'd rather be the devil
You know, I'd rather be the devil
Than a woman to that man
You know, I'd rather be the devil
Than a woman to that man
You know, I'm so sorry
You know, I'm so sorry
That I ever fell in love with you
Because you know you don't treat me
Baby, like the way you used to do

I laid down last night
You know, I laid down last night
And I tried to take me some rest
But my mind, it got to rambling
Like a wild geese in the west
You know, the man that I love
You know, the man that I love
I stole him from my best friend
You know, it done, she done got lucky
And she done stole him back again

You know, my baby don't like whiskey
You know, my baby don't like whiskey
And I know he ain't crazy about wine
You know, it was nothing but the devil
That changed my baby's mind

You know, I might be right
You know, I might be right
Then again, I might be wrong
You know, it ain't nothing but the devil
He done got my baby and gone

You know, it ain't nothing but the devil
He done got my baby and gone
