Run devil run, the angels having fun
Making winners out of sinners better leave before it's done
B
When he gets through, he'll be coming after you,
E A G A E
Listen what I'm saying to you Run . . . Run Devil Run
E
By a swamp in Alabama in the cold in the damp
E
Sittin reading by the light of a kerosene lamp
A
Lives a holly roller with a mission on her mind
E
Got to spread the word to anybody she can find
B
You can hear her screaming any time in night or day
E
This is what she says to keep the demons away

E
Run devil run, the angels having fun
E
Making winners out of sinners better leave before it's done
B
When he gets through, he'll be coming after you,
E A G A E
Listen what I'm saying to you Run . . . Run Devil Run

E
Her brother and her sister said that she brought them down
E
Steppin on the bus that was heading to town
A
There they started drinking, they got into a fight
E
The sheriff introduced them to the jailhouse for a night
B
When the holy roller came to town to pay the bail
E
This is what she sang as she was leaving the jail

E
Run devil run, the angels having fun
E
Making winners out of sinners better leave before it's done
B
When he gets through, he'll be coming after you,
E A G A E
Listen what I'm saying to you Run . . . Run Devil Run

Lead solo (8 bars)

Piano (8 bars)

E
Well by the middle of the summer they were back in the shack
E
Picking cotton for a livin keep 'em on the right track
A
Visiting the nieghbours trying to spread the good news
E
Singing gospel music with a hint of the blues
B
All of them determined to deliver the goods
E
Now you you hear the music comin out on the woods

E
Run devil run, the angel having fun
E
Making winners out of sinners better leave before it's done
B
When he gets through, he'll be coming after you,
E A G A E
Listen what I'm saying to you Run . . . Run Devil Run

E A G A E
Ah you'ld better Run . . . Run Devil Run
E A G A E
You better Run . . . Run Devil Run
