The Devil Loves California - A Parody

A Parody of 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia' by the Charlie Daniels' Band

The Devil loves California, cause everyone knows their souls are sealed
Everyone gets high, works nine to five, and is willing to kill or steal
Then he came across this young girl shaved, tattooed, selling hydroponic pot

So the Devil bought her last half an ounce then says,"Girl let me tell ya what..
Ain't too many know it, but I'm a riddle spinner too,I'll make a bet with you...
Now you slay pretty good riddles, but won't you give this serpent his due
I bet a riddle of golden ass and soul, cause this devil rhymes better than you..."

The girl said, "My names Sunny, and in my surfer girl tanned brown skin
I'll take those odds, then double your bet, cause I'm the bitch who always wins..."

Honey milk and silver spoons, with guns and stripper bars
Because hells broke loose in Santa Cruz and evil here is art
If he wins he gonna skin your naked bones for gold
And if you loose California get your soul

The Devil grins, his wicked face, it says, "Let's blast this ghetto."

Amplified bass speakers appearing from the air like satellite radio
His telemetry signals circuitry and he blew his competition one cold kiss
Then a thousand fallen angels joined his stardust band to make music dark like this

When the Devils band finished, Sunny shouted, " That might rock the house for some
You best listen up, grow some hair, then let a California girl show y'all how its done."

All the leaves are brown in the golden sun
Radio playing 'House o..the Rising Sun'
If you ever get out West of San Francisco
Watch out for those devil people
Don't go child please don't go

The surf was tidal ebbing, the Devil hung his head, in agony and defeat
His sharpest golden riddle had bare compared to Sunny improvised break beats

Sunny laughed, "Lucy...fer sure just come on back, and I'll kung fu your ass again
I sold out once, and your only Satan's son, my bitch-craft's darker than you've ever been."

All the leaves are brown in the golden sun
Radio playing 'House o..the Rising Sun'
If you ever get out West of San Francisco
Watch out for those devil people
Don't go child please don't go

I might take a request Jo. But I would reserve the right to turn it down, if I didn't think I could really do the parody justice. It is not something I do very often. Go ahead though shoot one at me if you want. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d

Interesting Parody Blake! I had to laugh about California people, but I was one of them once too. The Parody surely gave a spin on a very wonderful song. Thumbs Up! :)

Thanx AE. Don't think at all I don't love my Californian friends. It was a weird little inspiration I had, kinda nagged at me until I wrote it. Go figure, but it seems to still get some good vibrations. One of my secret faves still. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d
