Down Yonder Crossroads

Prompt: CROSSROADS

0c520381f2fb8bc10bbb1c0ae0b80239

They say if you go down yonder crossroads,
You can make a deal with King Devil.
They say if you go down yonder crossroads,
You can make a deal with King Devil.
But don’t you believe Stephen’s knave,
Cuz he nothin’, nothin’ but evil.

At midnight hour, he’ll grant your heart’s desire,
But it sure do come with a price.
Yeah, at midnight hour he’ll grant your heart’s desire,
But it sure do come with a big, big price.
And them Kings up in Glory,
They say it’s not worth the sacrifice.

But I done went and made me a deal,
Despite what the others say.
Yes, I done made me a deal,
No heed to what others say.
An I sure don’t regret it now,
But I might come my dying day.

 

 

A Xieland traditional blues song, 
Made famous by Blind Mose Williams
