The Devil Went Down to Georgia: Cobb County Creationism Stickers Nixed


The devil went down to Cobb County, Georgia
He was lookin' for a book to steal
He was in a bind 'cause he was way behind
And he was willing to make a deal

When he came across this young man
Reading Chicken Little a whole lot
And the devil jumped up on a hickory stump
And said, "Boy let me tell you what

"I guess you didn't know it
But I'm a Chicken Little too
And if you'd care to take a dare
I'll make a bet with you"

"Now you squawk a pretty good Chicken Little, boy
But give the devil his due
I bet a cross of gold against your soul
'Cause I think I'm better than you"

The boy said "My name's Johnny
And it might be a sin
But I'll take your bet and you're gonna regret
'Cause I'm the best that's ever been"

Johnny creationism's taken a blow
So play Chicken Little hard
'Cause Hell's broke loose in Cobb County, Georgia
And the devil deals the cards

And if you win
You get this shiny cross made of gold
But if you lose
The devil gets your soul

The devil openned up his book
And he said "I'll start this show"
And fire flew from his fingertips
As he said "It's Darwin don't y'all know"

And he pulled open the Origin
And a blew a Darwinian kiss
Then a band of monkeys joined in
And evolved something like this

When the devil finished Johnny said
"Well you're pretty good, old son
But sit down in that chair right there
While I kiss my cousin for fun"

Fire on the mountain, run boys run
The devil's in the house of the Risen Son
Chicken in the bread pan pickin' out dough
Granny does your dog bite, no child no

The devil raised his head
Because he knew Johnny'd been beat
And he threw that banned book
On the ground at Johnny's feet

Johnny said "Devil, just come on back
If you ever want to try again
But I told you once, you son of a bitch
I'm the most bigoted that's ever been"

He played
Fire on the mountain, run boys run
The devil's in the house of the Risen Son
Chicken in the bread pan pickin' out dough
Granny will your dog bite, no child no

A judge (also known as the Devil in Cobb County, Georgia) ruled the "evolution is a theory" stickers unconstitutional.
