FRIEND OF THE DEVIL  Grateful Dead

from the album "American Beauty", 1970
[G]I lit out from Reno I was [C]trailed by twenty hounds.
[G]Didn't get to sleep that night till the [C]morning came around.
[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 s[C]leep . . . to-[D]night.
[G]Ran into the devil, babe, he [C]loaned me twenty bills.
I [G]spent the night in Utah in a [C]cave up in the hills.
[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 s[C]leep . . . to-[D]night.
[G]Ran down to the levee but the [C]devil caught me there.
[G]Took my twenty dollar bill and he [C]vanished in the air.
[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 s[C]leep . . . to-[D]night.
[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.


[G]Got a wife in Chino, babe, and [C]one in Cherokee.
[G]Fist one says she's got my child, but [C]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 s[C]leep . . . to-[D]night.
