The Day I Turned The Devil Down

Not long ago Satan offered a deal.
I laughed and said, “Come on, Old Scratch. Get real.”
and grabbed my Fender, a pearl white Squire
to shred on some chords – higher and higher
trying my best to play like Elmore James,
Memphis Minnie, or one of the hundreds of names
of men and women who picked on the blues.
Folks who have nothing with nothing to lose.
