Friend of The Devil


by Grateful Dead (Hunter, Garcia, Dawson)
I lit out from Reno, I was trailed by twenty hounds
	Didn't get to sleep that night 'till the morning came around

	G  - - / C  - - // (2x)

 C:	Set out running gonna take my time
	A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
	If I get home before daylight
	I just might get some sleep tonight

	D - - - / Am - - - / D - - - / Am - - - / D - - - /   //

	Ran into the devil and he loaned me twenty bills
	Spent the night in Utah in cave up in the hills

 C:	Set out running gonna take my time
	A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
	If I get home before daylight
	I just might get some sleep tonight

	Ran down to the levee but the devil caught me there
	Took my twenty dollar bill and vanished in the air

 C:	Set out running gonna take my time
	A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
	If I get home before daylight
	I just might get some sleep tonight

 B:	Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night
	First ones named Sweet Anne Marie and she's my hearts delight
	Second one is prison baby, the sheriff's on my trail
	And if he catches up with me, you know I'll spend my life in jail

	D - - - /   / C - - - /   / D - - - /   / Am - - - / C - - - / D - - - /   //

	(Solo on verse changes)

 B:	Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night
	First ones named Sweet Anne Marie and she's my hearts delight
	Second one is prison baby, the sheriff's on my trail
	And if he catches up with me, you know I'll spend my life in jail

	Got a wife in Chino and one in Cherokee
	First one said says she's got my child, but it don't look like me

 C:	Set out running gonna take my time
	A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
	If I get home before daylight
	I just might get some sleep tonight
