The Devil Goes Down to Second Life

The Devil Goes Down to Second Life

Back in the 1979, the Charlie Daniels Band came out with a song called "The Devil Goes Down to Georgia." I remember it hit all the rock music stations (this was before the term "classic rock"), and probably all the country stations too (I don't listen to country).

It was a classic good vs. evil theme. The devil plays the fiddle. Johnnie plays the fiddle. The devil bets he can play better than Johnnie. The stakes are a gold fiddle (presumably worth enough to make Johnnie very rich) vs. Johnnie's soul. How does it turn out??
