Friend of the Devil Got a wife in Chino, babe, and one in
(Grateful Dead) Cherokee. The first one says she's got
my child, but it don't look like me.
(starts on 'B') (Instrumental)
I lit out from Reno, I was trailed by (Back to "Got two reasons")
twenty hounds. Didn't get to sleep
that night till the morning came
I set out runnin' but I take my
time, a friend of the devil is a
friend of mine, if I get home
before daylight, I just might get
some sleep tonight.
Ran into the devil, babe, he loaned me
twenty bills, I spent the night in
Utah, in a cave up in the hills.
I ran down to the levee, but the devil
caught me there He took my twenty
dollar bill and vanished in the air.
Got two reasons why I cry a- way each lonely
night, First one's named sweet Anne Marie,
and she's my hearts delight. Second one is
prison, baby, the sheriff's on my trail, and
if he catches up with me, I'll spend my
life in jail.
