Thread Name: Origin: Back Up And Push lyrics
Subject: Lyr Add: BACK UP AND PUSH (from June Carter Cash)
Hi you all. I'm curious about the lyrics to the fiddle tune Back Up And Push. The only one I've found who performs the song with vocals is June Carter Cash. Here's the video...
Are these traditional lyrics and has anyone else recorded them? The words are...

(As recorded by June Carter Cash)

Do you ever wonder about the riddle,
What kind of spirit lives in a fiddle?
Well that's old Satan right there waiting.
Or are you tuned with the angel band?

You back up and push, back up and push,
Back off from glory in.
You can't go wrong singing this song.
Back up and push away.

Verse 2:
If you let the devil play on your senses
Prepare to suffer the consequences.
The foolish measure of worldly pleasure
Can only drag you to the roaring fire.

Just curious if anyone's heard these words or knows when they were written.
