Subject: Grateful Dead - Friend of the Devil
[G] [C] [G]  
[G]I lit out from Reno I was [C]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]Didn't get to sleep that night till the [C]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,
a [Am]friend of the devil is a friend of mine.
If [D]I get home before day light,
I [Am]just might get some sleep tonight.
[D]Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night.
The [C]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,
and [Am]if he catches up with me I'll [C]spend my life in [D]jail.
