Paroles de la chanson Up Jumped The Devil par Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Oh my, oh my
What a wretched life
I was born on the day
That my poor mamma died
I was cut from her belly
With a Stanley knife
My daddy did a jig
With the drunk midwife

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

Oh poor heart
I was doomed from the start

Doomed to play
The villain's part
I was the baddest Johnny
In the apple cart
My blood was blacker
Than the chambers of a dead nun's heart

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

Oh no, oh 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 yonder laughing at me?
Like I was the brunt of some hilarity
Who's that yonder laughing at me?
Well, up jumped the Devil, one, two, three

Ha-ha ha ha ha
How lucky we were
We hit the cathouse
And sampled their wares
We got as drunk
As a couple of Czars
That night I swatted
My lucky star

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, I got proof"

Oh no, oh no, don't go
Oh slow down Joe
The righteous path
Is straight as an arrow
Take a walk
And you'll find it's 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
Now, who's that swinging from the gallow tree?
Up jumped the Devil and took my soul from me

Down, down, down, down we go
Down we go, down we go, down we go

The Devil and me
Down we go, down we go, down we go
Down, down, down, The Devil and me
Down we go, down we go, for eternity, down we go
Down we go, yeah down we go, down we go
Down, down, down, down we go
Down we go, down we go, the Devil and me
Down we go, down we go
