G C G G C 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. G C 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.
D Set out runnin' but I take my time, Am a friend of the devil is a friend of mine. D If I get home before day light, Am I just might get some sleep tonight.
D Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night. C The first one's named Sweet Anne Marie and she's my heart's delight. D 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.
