Scratch a lie...
Posted by SR on February 02, 2005
I watched the movie "Ray" last evening and when Ray Charles Robinson was a boy, his mother cautioned, "Scratch a lie, find a thief!"
Any ideas on origin? Is this a Southern/Negro saying or is it more widespread?
As ESC posted earlier they also referred to "Devil's Music."
