Lyrics

Friend of the Devil

I lit out from Reno I was trailed by 20 hounds.
Didn't get to sleep last night until the morning came around.
I said I'd run gonna 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 and he loaned me 20 bills.
I spent the night in Reno in a cave up in the hils.

Refrain

I ran down to the levi babe but the Devil caught me there.
He snatched that 20 dollar bill and he vanished in the air.

Refrain

Performance Sung, arranged and recorded by Linda Mckenzie Label Addagirl Music
