Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

    (Arlen-Koehler)

Transcribed from Cab Calloway and His Orchestra, recorded October 21, 1931.
From Cab Calloway and His Orchestra 1931-1932; The Chronogical Classics 526.

I don't want you,
But I hate to lose you,
You've got me inbetween the devil and the deep blue sea.

I forgive you,
'Cause I can't forget you,
You've got me inbetween the devil and the deep blue sea.

I ought to cross you off my list,
But when you come knocking at my door,
Fate seems to give my heart a twist,
And I come running back for more.

I should hate you,
But I guess I love you,
You've got me inbetween the devil and the deep blue sea.
