FRIEND OF THE DEVIL - GRATEFUL DEAD
G C G
I lit out from Reno I was trailed by twenty hounds.
ran into the devil, babe, he loaned me twenty bills.
ran down to the levee but the devil caught me there.
Got a wife in Chino, babe, and one in Cherokee.
Didn't get to sleep that night till the morning came around.
I spent the night in Utah in a cave up in the hills.
took my twenty dollar bill and he vanished in the air.
Fist one says she's got my child, but it don't look like me.
Set out runnin' but I take my time,
a friend of the devil is a friend of mine.
If I get home before day light,
I just might get some sleep tonight.
Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night.
The first one's named Sweet Anne Marie and she's my heart's delight.
Second one is prison, baby, the shefiff's on my trail,
Am C D
and if he catches up with me I'll spend my life in jail.
