Chorus:
I been 'buked an' I been scorned, Childrens, I been 'buked an' I been scorned, Childrens, I been 'buked an' I been scorned, I been talked 'bout sure as you're born.
I met ol'. Satan on the way, I met ol' Satan on the way, I met ol' Satan on the way, He says, "Young man, you're too young to pray."
EŁ you want to see ol' Satan run, Jes' fire off dat gospel gun.
01' Satan wears a mighty big shoe,
EŁ you don' watch, gwine slip it on you.
Ol' Satan's like a snake in de grass, Always in some Christian's pass.
What's oP Satan grumblin' about, He's in hell an' he cain' get out.
OP Satan's mad, an' I am glad,
He missed de soul he thought he had.
OP Satan's like an ol' greyhoun', Runnin' dem sinners roun' an' roun\
[589]
