Note: Jones tells of a man named McGinnis whom she knew in Fitzgerald, Georgia, who could perform spells and cure almost anything. He acquired this gift by going to the crossroads and cursing God for nine mornings; one the ninth, the devil came to him in the form of a bull and fulfilled his desire. Jones goes on to discuss experiences with evil spirits and witchcraft. The story at the end of the track cuts off, and continues on T955.15.
