I lit out from Reno I was trailed by twenty hounds
G G/F# G/E G/D C C/B C/A C/G
Didn't get to sleep that night till 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 day light
Am D riff 1 (as D - G)
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 ...CHORUS

Ran down to the levee but the devil caught me there
took my twenty dollar bill and he vanished in the air ...CHORUS

riff 2 D
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
Second one is prison, baby, the shefiff's on my trail
Am C D riff 3 (D - G)
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
