[G]I lit o[G/F#]ut from R[G/E]eno I [G/D]was tra[C]iled by t[C/B]wenty hound[C/A]s[C/G]
[G]Didn't g[G/F#]et to sleep t[G/E]hat n[G/D]ight till the mo[C]rning c[C/B]ame aro[C/A]und[C/G]
[D]Set out runnin' but I take my time
a [Am]friend of the devil is a friend of mine
If [D]I get home before day light
Am D riff 1 (as D -> G)
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 ...CHORUS
Ran down to the levee but the devil caught me there
took my twenty dollar bill and he vanished in the air ...CHORUS
riff 2 D
Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night
The [C/G]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 riff 3 (D -> G)
and if he catches up with me I'll spend my life in jail
Got a wife in Chino, babe, and one in Cherokee
First one says she's got my child, but it don't look like me
