Friend of the Devil

I lit out from Reno, I was trailed by 20 hounds
Couldn't get to sleep that night 'til the morning came around

I set out runnin', but I 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

I ran into the devil, babe, he loaned me 20 bills
I spent the night in Utah in a cave up in the hills

I set out runnin', but I 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

I ran down to the levee, but the devil caught me there
He took my $20 bill and he vanished in the air

I set out runnin', but I 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

I got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night
The first one's named sweet Anne Marie, and she's my heart's delight
The second one is prison, babe, and the sheriff's on my trail
If he catches up with me, I'll spend the night in jail

I got a wife in Chino, babe, and one in Cherokee
The first one says she's got my child, but it don't look like me

I set out runnin', but I 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
