For those who haven’t seen it on the righthand side of the page, nofightin.com is now on YouTube as nofightindotcom.

Right now, we’ve gathered some of the best Red Devils, 13 and Lester Butler clips in easy-to-use playlists, so you can hear things like Pinkpop all in one sitting (and in the right order). If we have time, we’ll try to upload some of our own personal videos, and collect up some other Devils-related music. And if any fans have videos they’d like us to upload to nofightindotcom, or found some vids we haven’t seen, please let us know.

You can find more about some of these videos here on nofightin.com, including reviews, background info and more.

“I was Wrong” Lyrics

Posted in red devils with tags , , on August 5, 2009 by automatic32

Contained in this post are the lyrics to the song credited incorrectly as “Who Do You Love” on the Pinkpop video footage. It has been unofficially renamed “I was Wrong,” taking its name from the phrase most often repeated in the chorus by Lester Butler. The lyrics are similar to and seem to have been lifted in part from the Magic Sam tune “You Were Wrong,” while the music sounds as if it was borrowed from a different Magic Sam song called “Backstroke.” At any rate, if you’re listening to the Pinkpop performance, these are the lyrics.

(extended guitar intro)

I’ve been wrong, baby, I been so wrong, baby
I been wrong, baby, I been so wrong, girl
I been wrong, I been wrong, I been wrong
Shouldn’t of stayed away too long

Kiss me, baby, momma hold me tight
Kiss me, baby, momma hold me tight
Can’t wait another minute
Can’t wait another night

(guitar solo)

Oh yeah, baby – I feel all right
Say yeah, baby, momma feels all right
Can’t wait another minute, won’t wait another night

(harp solo)
