You ain't never had my cornbread

Dave Matthews has another potential hit song.

But I must warn, the lyrics are a bit... not clean. They also change slightly each time the song is played. This version is taken from DMB's performance in Camden, NJ on May 31st of this year.

Dancing with the devil 'round the fire
mess your mama's bed for a little more magic
make you wanna run around naked
'cause you know it looks good on you
you ain't ever had my cornbread
little bit of heaven and a little bit of
cut it down the middle, open wide, and jump right in

Seen you there behind this miller's shed
got your boy and giving him head
naughty little girl but you know instead
joy is steeped with sin
cover yourself with guilt and shame
well what that good ain't no one to blame
enjoy yourself while you're in the game
the joy is steeped with sin

It soars inside my soul because of you
all this innocence that you inspire
you know you are as heaven intended you
come on show it off, your lovely flower

Dancing with the devil 'round a fire
mess your mama's bed for a little more magic
make you wanna run around naked
'cause you know it looks good on you
you ain't ever had my cornbread
a little bit of heaven and a little bit of
cut it down the middle, open wide, and jump right in

Yeah, yeah, know you love me
yeah, yeah, know you love me
yeah, yeah, know you love me
joy is steeped with sin
yeah, yeah, know you love me
yeah, yeah, know you love me
yeah, yeah, know you love me
joy is steeped with sin

It soars inside my soul because of you
and all the innocence that you inspire
you know you are as heaven intended you
come on, open up your lovely flower

It's all inside your head
[?] enough inside your head
all you need now to make love happen
it's all inside your head
quite enough inside your head
all that you need to make love, yeah

Dancing with the devil 'round a fire
mess your mama's bed for a little more magic
make you wanna run around naked
'cause you know it looks good on you
but you ain't ever had my cornbread
little bit of heaven and a little bit of
cut it down the middle, open wide, and jump right in

It soars inside my soul because of you
all the innocence that you inspire
you know you are as heaven intended you
open up your lovely flower

It's all inside your head
it's all inside of your head
all that you need to make love happen
it's all inside your head
love inside your head
all that you need to make love happen

It might be.

There's an early acoustic version on the "Live at Radio City" CD and there's a full band version on the "Live at Piedmont Park" CD.

Thank you for the best version of the lyrics, I could find. I am doing this as a painting. I wonder if you would be interested in what I do??? Happy days to you!
