Episode Song Title Music:

We now know the title for the Episode 5 of Season 4 is “Me And The Devil”. As is our practice, we like to speculate about what song will be chosen by True Blood’s Creator and Executive Producer, Allan Ball and his Music Supervisor, Gary Calamar.

For this episode, we think the song is Gil Scott-Heron’s video for “Me And The Devil” and once again, we were right! Taken from his forthcoming album “I’m New Here”.

And, here are the lyrics:

Early this morning
When you knocked
Upon my door (2x)
An I say
Hello Satan
I believe it’s time to go
Me and the Devil
Walking side by side (2x)
And I’m gonna see my woman
‘Til I get satisfied
See See
You don’t see why
Like you’a dog me ’round
*Now babe you know I ain’t do it like that
Say I
Don’t see why
People dawging me around
It must be that old old evil spirit
That spirit drop me down in your ground
You may
Bury my body
Down by the highway side
*I don’t really care where you bury me when I’m gone
I’m gone
You may bury my body
Down by the highway side
So my old evil spirit
Can greyhound
Bus that ride
–Bonus part
In the ruins of another black mans life
Or flying through the valley
Separating day and night
I am am Death,
Cried the Vulture,
For the people of the light
Caron brought his raft
From the sea that sails on souls
And I saw the scavenger departing
Taking warm hearts to the cold
He knew the ghetto was a haven
For the meanest creature ever known
In a wilderness of heart break
In a desert of despair
Evil’s clarion of justice
Shrieks a cry of naked terror
Taking babies from their mamas
Leaving grief beyond compare
So if you see the vulture coming
Flying circles in your mind
Remember their is no escaping
For he will follow close behind

Only promise me a battle
A battle
For your soul and mind
And mine
And mine

    It looks like this may have some potential for Eric and Sookie interaction, hopefully the naughty kind.
