lyrics

A woman stood singing alone in her garden
Singing songs sweet as the air
She heard a sound, and when she turned around
A beautiful devil was there

Will you come with me, oh won’t you come with me
The beautiful devil he cried
Will you come with me, oh won’t you come with me
Come rule in hell by my side

I swore to my mother I never would marry
A man or a devil beside
It won’t change a thing, be you devil or king
I never will be no man’s bride

Will you come with me, oh won’t you come with me
I’ll drape you in jewels and in gold
Will you come with me, oh won’t you come with me
My palace is sweet to behold

I won’t have a man who is seeking to own me
You bind me I’ll wither and die
A chain made of gold is still made to hold
A palace a cage to my eye

Will you come with me, oh won’t you come with me
I’ll feed you on sugars and sweets
Will you come with me, oh won’t you come with me
You’ll eat from the choicest of meats

There’s no fruit sweeter than what’s in my garden
Hell’s sweets would be bitter to me
The eggs from my hen are far choicer than
Your meat could possibly be

The devil he turned and the devil he cursed her
How dare you refuse me, he said
The devil he turned and the devil he cursed her
I’ll wait until after you’re dead

Oh you’ll never get me or you wouldn’t be here
Why trade for what you’ll get for free?
I’ll tend my plants and I’ll take my chances
And after it’s over I’ll see

Will you come with me, oh won’t you come with me
The beautiful devil he said
The woman replied with a gleam in her eye
I’d rather go nowhere instead
