About me

Sydney Carter 'The Devil'

The Devil wore a Crucifix 
"The Christians they are right" 
The Devil said "so let us burn 
A heretic tonight, 
A heretic tonight". 

The stars and stripes or swastika 
The crescent or a star 
The Devil he will wear them all 
No matter what they are, 
No matter what they are, 

In red or blue or khaki 
In green or black and tan 
The Devil is a patriot 
A proper party man, 
A proper party man.

Whenever there's a lynching 
The Devil will be there
A witch or an apostle, 
The Devil doesn't care, 
The Devil doesn't care. 

He'll beat a drum in China
He'll beat it in the west 
He'll beat a drum for anyone 
"And a Holy war is best, 
A Holy war is best". 

The Devil isn't down in hell 
Or riding in the sky 
The Devil's dead (I've heard it said) 
They're telling you a lie, 
They're telling you a lie!
