Talkin' Devil

Bob Dylan

19 Jan 1963
BLIND BOY GRUNT (vinyl bootleg)

Folkways Studios, New York City NY - february 1963  

This is all about what the devil is,
some people say that there's no devil.

Well sometimes you can't see him so good
When he rides his head neath a snow white hood
An' rides to kill with his face well hid
An' then goes home to his wife an' kids
Wonder if his kids know who he is?

Well he wants you to hate, he wants to fear
He wants you to fear somethin' that's not even there
He'll give you his hate an' he'll give you his lies
He'll give you the weapons to run out an' die
An' you give him your soul.

There's just two verses to it.
