Ray LaMontagne - Devil's In The Jukebox Lyrics




Big yellow moon risin' up over them old hills
Big yellow moon risin' up over them old hills
There's a big yellow moon risin' over the hills
My baby's on a tear and she's fit to kill
There's a big yellow moon risin' up over them old hills

The Devil's in the Jukebox jumpin' on the rhythm and blues
Devil's in the Jukebox jumpin' on the rhythm and blues
The Devil's in the Jukebox jumpin' on the rhythm
Kinfolk say you've got to take what you've been given
The Devil's in the Jukebox jumpin' on the rhythm and blues

Mama 'bout to throw a few tomatoes on the griddle to fry
Mama 'bout to throw a few tomatoes on the griddle to fry
Mama 'bout to throw a few tomatoes on the griddle
Kick off your shoes and set a little
Mama 'bout to throw a few tomatoes on the griddle to fry

Packin' my bags and thinking that Id get out of town
Packin' my bags and thinking that Id get out of town
Been packin' my bags, think I'll get out of town
But like an old dog I just keep hangin' 'round
Packin' my bags and thinking that Id get out of town

Big yellow moon risin' up over them old hills
Big yellow moon risin' up over them old hills
There's a big yellow moon risin' over the hills
My baby's on a tear and she's fit to kill
There's a big yellow moon risin' up over them old hills

  17. Emily Robbins

    This is why dirt is dusty and why Howlin' Wolf is muddy waters. This is harmonica-souled to the devil's sell---swaying saved blues.

    You are not musically inclined if you don't appreciate the subtle beauty and artistry of the vocal melody, lyrics and band groove. Seriously......get a clue, this is phenomenal. What is slightly unusual is going to the 5 chord before going to the 4. There are broad similarities in terms of chord progression to the Beatle's "Saw Her Standing There", believe it or not!

  21. Hankus Dankus

    Wow, someone compared the tune as "Apple Sucklin's Tree" from the Basement Tapes. Gratifying to know there are similar souls out there. I didn't think about that but the tunes are the same. But, I agree with Equalizer 919, it's been around forever. That doesn't mean this isn't a great song performed with lots of heart and style. Comparison to The Band is appropriate as much of this album is kinda Band-like. Go Ray!

  22. Todd Schumann

    Your forgetting one main thing, maybe the biggest...MOJO! Man He's(They) got it. Sure it's 12 bar. 20 people could record the same track, but not many of them can hook you in and get emotional about it. If your not feeling that....I feel sorry for you.

  23. keltyk

    Is that the same tune as Dylan's 'Apple Sucklin' Tree' off of Basement Tapes? Very traditional and very very nice- Did Dylan and Ray both source it from some old tune? Enjoyed both very much- I'm just asking because I'm interested in traditional music

    thanks for posting - good stuff
