Lyrical Meaning Of Rolling Stones' "Sympathy For The Devil"

I was given the DVD, Interview With The Vampire, as a gift and recently decided to give a watch. I’ve seen the movie countless times and never find it to get old. Interestingly, and I’m not sure why, I have only seen it on cable television maybe once. Oh well.

Guns N' Roses does a cover of “Sympathy for the Devil” at the end of the movie. Nice job with the cover, but I prefer the Rolling Stones' (Mick Jagger pictured above) version. So what do these lyrics from the song mean anyway?

And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay
