Friend of the Devil 1

Jerry Garcia, Robert Hunter


20 Apr 1996
cd imgTHE MAINE EVENT (T-508)

  Live, State Theater, Portland ME - 20.apr.1996  

I lit out from Reno, babe, I was paced by twenty hounds
Didn't get to sleep last night until the morning came around

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, love, he loaned me twenty bills
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 met me there
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.

There's two reasons that I lay awake each lonely night
First one's named sweet Anne Marie, and she's my heart's delight
Second one is prison, babe, the sheriff's on my trail
And 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

Set out runnin', but I take my time
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
I get home before daylight, just might get some sleep tonight.

There's two reasons that I lay awake each lonely night
First one's named sweet Anne Marie, and she's my heart's delight
Second one is prison, babe, the sheriff's on my trail
And 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

Set out runnin', but I take my time
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
I get home before daylight, just might get some sleep tonight.  up

  Live, State Theater, Portland ME - 19.feb.1999  

I set out from Reno, babe, chased by twenty hounds.
Didn't get to sleep that night 'til the morning came around.

Set out runnin', but I take my time.
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine.
If i get home before daylight, just might get some sleep, sleep tonight.

I ran into the devil, dear, he loaned me twenty bills.
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, sleep tonight.

Go down to [where i don't know], the devil caught me there
Took my twenty dollar bill, vanished in the air.

Set out runnin', but I take my time.
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine.
I get home before daylight, just might get some sleep, sleep tonight.

There's two reasons why I lay awake each lonely night
First one's named sweet Anne Marie, and she's my heart's delight.
Second one is prison, babe, sheriff's on my trail
And if he catches up with me, I'll spend my life in jail.

I got a wife in Chino, babe, I got a wife in Cherokee
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.
I get home before daylight, just might get some sleep, sleep tonight.

There's two reasons why I lay awake each lonely night away
First one's named sweet Anne Marie, she's my heart's delight.
Second one is prison, babe, sheriff's on my trail
And if he catches up with me, I'll spend my life in jail.

I got a wife in Chino, babe, I got a wife in Cherokee
First one says she 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.
I get home before daylight, just might get some sleep, sleep tonight.  up
