lyrics

WAS A TIME GONE AWAY I’D A FARM ON A HILL
FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA
IN A TIME GONE AWAY I’D A FARM ON A HILL
I’S INCLINED TO HOE CORN, I’D BE FARMING THERE STILL
SINGIN’ FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA

ONE DAY AS I LAY WITH MY HEAD TO THE SKY
FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA
THIS DAY AS I LAY WITH MY HEAD TO THE SKY
COME THE DEVIL TO ME WITH A FIRE IN HIS EYES
SINGIN’ FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA

I ASKED OF THE DEVIL: YOU’RE AFTER MY LIFE?
FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA
I CRIED TO THE DEVIL: YOU’RE AFTER MY LIFE
OH NO, SAID THE DEVIL, I’M AFTER YOUR WIFE
SINGIN’ FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA

I SAID: TAKE HER AWAY, AND I’LL TROUBLE YOU NONE
FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA
YOU TAKE HER AWAY, AND I’LL TROUBLE YOU NONE
SHE WON’T BE MUCH LONGER SO PRETTY AND YOUNG
SINGIN’ FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA

HE CARRIED HER DOWN TO THE VALLEY OF HELL
FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA
HE CARRIED MY LOVE TO THE VALLEY OF HELL
AND HE CALLED TO HIS DEMONS: LET’S SCORCH HER UP WELL
SINGIN’ FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA

OUT COME HIS DEMONS TO PUT HER IN CHAINS
FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA
OUT COME SOME DEMONS TO PUT HER IN CHAINS
THEN UP WITH HER FOOT AND SHE KICKED IN THEIR BRAINS
SINGIN’ FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA

SHE BACKED THE OLD DEVIL UP INTO THE WALL
FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA
SHE BACKED MISTER DEVIL UP INTO THE WALL
SAYIN’ LET ME GO, DADDY, OR I’LL MURDER YOU ALL
SINGIN’ FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA

EARLY NEXT MORNING I LOOKED TO THE ROAD
FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA
I WOKE THE NEXT MORNING AND LOOKED TO THE ROAD
AND THERE WAS MY LOVER A’COMIN’ ON HOME
SINGIN’ FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA

BY NOW YOU SHOULD KNOW WHAT MY WOMAN CAN DO
FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA
NOW YOU SHOULD KNOW WHAT MY WOMAN CAN DO
SHE BESTED THE DEVIL, SHE’D DO BETTER TO YOU
SINGIN’ FIDDLE-EE-DEE, FIDDLE-DA
