The Devil Came from Kansas - Yusuf/Cat Stevens

Oh the devil came from Kansas where he went to I can't say

 

Though I teach I'm not a preacher and I aim to stay that way

There's a monkey riding on my back been there for some time

He says he knows me very well but he's no friend of mine

I am not a humble pilgrim

 

There's no need to scrape and squeeze

 

And don't beg for silver paper

 

When I'm trying to sell you cheese

 

Oh the devil came from Kansas where he went to I can't say

 

If you really are my brother then you'd better start to pray

For the sins of those departed and the ones about to go

 

There's a dark cloud just above us don't tell me 'cos I know

 

I am not a humble pilgrim

 

There's no need to scrape and squeeze

 

And don't beg for silver paper

 

When I'm trying to sell you cheese

 

No I never came from Kansas don't forget to thank the cook

 

Which reminds me of my duty I was lost and now I look

For the turnings and the signpost and the road which takes you down

To that pool inside the forest in whose waters I shall drown

 

I am not a humble pilgrim

 

There's no need to scrape and squeeze

 

And don't beg for silver paper

 

When I'm trying to sell you cheese
