I laid up from Reno I was trailed by 20 hounds

Didn't get to sleep last 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

Well, I ran into the levee but devil caught me there

Took my twenty dollar bill and he vanished in the air



I got two reasons why I cry each lonely night

First one's named sweet Anne Marie, she's my heart's delight

Second one is person with the sheriff on my trail

And if he catches me I'll spend my life in jail

I?ve got a wife in Chino Bay and one in Cherokee

First one says she got my child but it don?t look like me
