Marty Robbins Finally Breaks Free From The Charms of a “Devil Woman”

by

In 1962, Marty Robbins released “Devil Woman” as the first single and title track off his tenth studio album. The song then became another successful hit for Robbins, reaching No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart – where it remained at the top spot for eight remarkable weeks.

On top of that, it successfully crossed over onto the pop chart, peaking at No. 16 on Billboard Hot 100. Since then, several artists from various genres and different countries have recorded “Devil Woman.” This includes Puerto Rican singer Chucho Avellanet, who released a Spanish language version of the country ballad titled “Magia Blanca.” It became Avellanet’s first career hit!

The Tale Of An Unfaithful Husband

Written by Marty Robbins, “Devil Woman” tells the story of a man breaking up with his paramour. He tells her – whom he refers to as the Devil Woman – that he has finally confessed to his wife, Mary. Although Mary was so hurt and cried hard, she has forgiven her unfaithful husband. After all, she’s still in love with him.

Now, the man is asking the Devil Woman to release him, for he no longer wants to see Mary crying. Throughout the song, he blames the Devil Woman for the whole shenanigan, telling her that she’s pure evil, blaming her for his wife’s emotional distress, and even heavily suggesting that the Devil Woman was somehow holding him hostage.

But it’s now over between the two of them, and he’s no longer trapped within her charms. He vows never again to cause another tear to fall, for he now fully knows what belongs to him – and that’s his wife, Mary.

“Devil Woman” was one of Marty Robbins songs that drew critical acclaim. You can listen to the song in the video below.
