G I lit out from Reno, C I was trailed by twenty hounds G Didn't get to sleep that night C 'Till the morning came around. D Set out runnin' but I take my time Am A friend of the devil is a friend of mine D If I get home before daylight, Am C D I just might get some sleep tonight. Ran into the devil, babe, He loaned me twenty bills I spent the night in Utah In a cave up in the hills. 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 twenty dollar bill And vanished in the air. 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. D Got two reasons why I cry D Away each lonely night, C The first one's named Sweet Anne Marie, C C C# And she's my hearts delight. D The second one is prison, baby, D The sheriff's on my trail, Am And if he catches up with me, C D I'll spend my life in jail. 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. 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. Extra Verse You can borrow from the devil You can borrow from a friend The devil’ll loan ya twenty But your friend got only ten
