about

Originally written by Billy the Legend, the greatest unsung hero of folk music, now sung with permission and creative expansion, with severe respect and reverence.

lyrics

Walks in moonlight, not a sound
Midnight devil gonna hunt you down
Ain't got no worries, bills to pay,
Midnight devil, gonna sleep all day.

Lost my job down in New Orleans
Spent my last paycheck buyin dead man's dreams
Went to the doctor, to that Ph.D.,
Said "Boy I'll make you what no man should be."

Walks in moonlight, not a sound,
Midnight devil gonna hunt you down
Ain't got no worries, bills to pay,
Midnight devil, gonna sleep all day.

Go to the bayou, there's a man you''ll meet
Whisper to the bullfrog "Mephistopheles".
Hair like midnight, eyes like fire
King of Devils and Prince of Lies.
I did like she told me, got down on one knee
With the man in the black suit, Mephistopheles.
