Friend Of The Devil  Grateful Dead


[G]I lit out from Reno I was [C]trailed by twenty hounds
[G]Didn't get to sleep that night 'til the [C]morning came around
[D]Set out running but I take my time
[Am]Friend of the Devil is a friend of mine
[D]If I get home before daylight
[Am]I just might get some sleep to[D]night
Ran into the Devil, babe, he loaned me twenty bills.
Spent the night in Utah in a cave up in the hills
(chorus)

I ran down to the levee but the Devil caught me there
Took my twenty dollar bill and he vanished in the air
(chorus)

[D]Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night
[C]First one's named sweet Ann Marie and she's my heart's delight
[D]Second one is prison baby, the Sheriff's on my trail
[C]And if he catches up with me I'll [Am]spend my life in jail

[G]Got a wife in Chino, babe, and [C]one in Cherokee
[G]First one says she's got my child but [C]it don't look like me
(chorus)

[D]Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night
[C]First one's named sweet Ann Marie and she's my heart's delight
[D]Second one is prison baby, the Sherriff's on my trail
[C]And if he catches up with me I'll [Am]spend my life in jail

[G]Got a wife in Chino, babe, and [C]one in Cherokee
[G]First one says she's got my child but [C]it don't look like me
(chorus)

I think, on the last line of the bridge a chord progression is missing.

I'll[Am]spend my l[C]ife in j[D]ail
