Θα πάμε, όλη τη σημερινή ημέρα τουλάχιστον, με αφιερώματα. Αυτό εδώ δεν χρειαζεται, υποθέτω, παρουσίαση.

We ‘ll spend the whole day with dedications. I suppose this one doesn’t need an introduction.

❝ Early this morning
When you knocked upon my door
Early this morning, ooh
When you knocked upon my door
And I said “hello Satan
I believe it’s time to go”
Me and the Devil
Was walkin’ side-by-side
Me and the Devil, ooh
Was walking side-by-side
I’m going to beat my woman
Until I get satisfied
She said “you don’t see why
That I will dog her ’round”
Now baby you know you ain’t doin’ me right, now
She say “you don’t see why, hoo
That I would dog her ’round”
It must-a been that old evil spirit
So deep down in the ground
You may bury my body
Down by the highway side
Baby, I don’t care where you bury my body when I’m dead and gone
You may bury my body, hoo
Down by the highway side
So my old evil spirit
Can get a Greyhound bus and ride ❞

Enjoy!


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
