Song Meaning
Verse 1
I lit up from Reno
I was trailed by twenty hounds
Didn't get to sleep that night
Till the morning came around
Verse 2
I set out running but I'll 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
Verse 3
I ran into the Devil, babe
He loaned me twenty bills
I spent that night in Utah
In a cave up in the hills
Verse 4
I set out running 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
Verse 5
I ran down to the levee
But the Devil caught me there
He took my twenty dollar bill
And he vanished in the air
Verse 6
I set out running 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
Verse 7
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 sheriff's on my trail
And if he catches up with me
I'll spend my life in jail
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
I set out running 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
Verse 10
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 sheriff's on my trail
And if he catches up with me
I'll spend my life in jail
Verse 11
Got a wife in Chino, babe
The one in Cherokee
The first one says she's got my child
But it don't look like me
Verse 12
I set out running 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
