FRIEND OF THE DEVIL (Words by Robert Hunter / Music by Jerry Garcia, John Dawson) The Grateful Dead I lit out from Reno I was trailed by twenty hounds Didn't get to sleep that night Till the morning came around I set out running but I take my time A friend of the Devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight I might get some sleep tonight I ran into the Devil, babe He loaned me twenty bills I spent that night in Utah In a cave up in the hills I set out running but I take my time A friend of the devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight I might get some sleep tonight I ran down to the levee But the Devil caught me there He took my twenty dollar bill And he vanished in the air I set out running but I take my time A friend of the Devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight I might get some sleep tonight Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night First one's named sweet Anne Marie and she's my heart's delight Second one is prison, baby the sheriff's on my trail 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 I set out running but I take my time A friend of the Devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight I might get some sleep tonight
