DEVIL WOMAN
(Paul Size, The Red Devils)
THE RED DEVILS (KING KING, 1992)

I met a devil woman
In a dream the other night
Had the black cat eyes
And I swear she could fly
Yeah, I met a devil woman
In a dream the other night
Woo-wooh, woo-wooh
I swear she could fly
Yeah, I swear the gal could fly
Yeah, I swear she could fly
And I heard my mama cry

Met a gypsy in jail
Was about to die
Gave me two clear vials
Now, son they make you fly
Met a gypsy in jail
Was about to die
Woo-wooh, woo-wooh
Yeah, I heard my mama cry
I can hear the little girl cry
I can hear her cry
Yeah, I heard my mama cry
She said don't you kill yourself

Had a black cat bone
Had the John the Conqueroo'
(High John the Conqueror Root **)
Had the needle in my hand
But I ain't got you
Yeah, I met a devil woman
In a dream the other night
Woo-wooh, woo-wooh
I can hear my mama cry
I can hear the little girl cry
I could hear my mama cry
Said now sonny don't die
Don't you kill yourself

Now you're thinkin' 'bout smokin'
Or the needle and the spoon
Just remember what I said
In that dirty backroom
Well, I met a devil woman
In a dream the other night
Woo-wooh, woo-wooh
I heard my mama cry
I can hear her cry
I can hear the little girl cry
Said sonny don't die
Don't you kill yourself

** High John the Conqueror is the most prized of the three John roots. When Muddy Waters sings in Willie Dixon's song "Hootchie Cootchie Man" that he has "a John the Conqueroo," he means a John the Conqueror root -- the hard, woody tuber of Ipomoea jalapa, a member of the morning glory family, and a relative of the common sweet potato.
