Way down in Louisiana
Amongst the tall grown sugar canes
Lived a simple man and a domineerin' hen
And a rose of a different name

The first time I fell lightly
I was standing in the drizzlin' rain
With a trembling hand and a bottle of gin
And a rose of a different name

The devil made me do it the first time
The second time, I done it on my own
Lord, put a handle on a simple handed man
And help me leave that black rose alone

When the devil made that woman
Lord, she threw the pattern away
She was built for speed with the tools you need
To make a new fool every day

Way down, deep and dirty
On the darker side of shame
You caught a cane cuttin' man with a bottle of gin
With a rose of a different name

The devil made me do it the first time
The devil made me do it the first time

SHAVER, BILLY
