Friend of the Devil Lyrics Meanings

Friend of the Devil Lyrics

Just got back from Reno I was trailed by 20 hounds
Didn’t get to bed last night till morning came around


Set out running but I take my time
Friend of the devil is a friend of mine
I get home before daylight
Just might get some sleep tonight


Ran into the devil baby he loaned me 20 bills
Spent the night in Utah in a cave up in the hills


Set out running but I take my time
Friend of the devil is a friend of mine
I get home before daylight
Just might get some sleep tonight


Went down to the levee babe and the devil caught me there
Took my 20 dollar bills and he vanished in the air


Set out running but I take my time
Friend of the devil is a friend of mine
I get home before daylight
Just might get some sleep tonight


Got a wife in Chino baby and one in Miramichi
First one says she’s got my child but it don’t look like me


Set out running but I take my time
Friend of the devil is a friend of mine
I get home before daylight
Just might get some sleep tonight


Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night
First one’s named sweet Amy D and she’s my heart’s delight
Second one is prison babe, sheriff’s on my trail
And if he ever catches me, I’ll spend my life in jail


Got two reasons why I cry away each lonely night
First one’s named sweet Amy D and she’s my heart’s delight
Second one is prison babe, the Coast Guard’s on my trail
And they ever board this boat, I’ll spend my life in jail




Made it back to Reno babe and I wagered 50 cents
I turned it to 5000 yes and paid back what was lent


Set out running but I take my time
Friend of the devil is a friend of mine
I get home before daylight
Just might get some sleep tonight


Borrow from the devil baby borrow from a friend
The devil will lend you 20 yes and a friend will loan you 10


Set out running but I take my time
Friend of the devil is a friend of mine
I get home before daylight
Just might get some sleep tonight
