Willie Nelson - Satan,You,re Kingdom Must Come Down
"Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down" is an old song from North Carolina has been done in many variations. . A very different variation of the song, called "Satan, We're Gonna Tear Your Kingdom Down" appears on a compilation of early songs from North Carolina's African-American music tradition called Eight Hand Sets and Holy Steps (you can buy it here). This version was by the Second St. Paul Junior Choir and recorded by University of North Carolina folklorist Glenn Hinson in the late 1970s. From the liner notes of that album: "Though it rarely appears in song collections, "Satan, We're Gonna Tear Your Kingdom Down" has apparently enjoyed wide currency across the Carolinas for many years. The song's earliest recording...was made by the black South Carolina evangelist Blind Joe Taggart in 1931. Since that time, this piece has been recorded by both African-American and Anglo-American singers, with renditions ranging from solo performances to spirited gospel versions."
