Friend of the Devil
Grateful Dead Lyrics


I lit up from Reno
I was trailed by twenty hounds
Didn't get to sleep that night
Till the morning came around

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

I ran into the Devil, babe
He loaned me twenty bills
I spent that night in Utah
In a cave up in the hills

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

I ran down to the levee
But the Devil caught me there
He took my twenty dollar bill
And he vanished in the air

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

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

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

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

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

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

I set out running but I took 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 hope that Prosciutto and Pesci got to live with eachother in the afterlife. People always forget La Squadra was a family just as much as Passione was, so I hope they have a great afterlife.

After Jerry's cremation, his ashes were spread in the river Ganges India. Bob weir was in tears and played this song at the Ganges at that time. RIP Jerry

@remusomega Nah. If you're near the main city then yeah. But like if you're in Uttarakhand (Haridwar, Hrishikesh) it's crystal clear. I distinctly recall being able to see fishes from the top of a bridge.

The Ganges is a truly disgusting river if you have ever lived/been to India. He's probably not resting in peace.
