"Christine's Tune" as written by Christopher Hillman and Gram Parsons....
She's a devil in disguise you can see it in her eyes
She's telling dirty lies she's a devil in disguise in disguise
Now a woman like that all she does is hate you
She doesn't know what makes a man a man
She'll talk about the times that she's been with you
She'll speak your HREF to everyone she can
She's a devil in disguise you can see it in her eyes
She's telling dirty lies she's a devil in disguise in disguise
Unhappiness has been her close companion

Her world is full of jealousy and doubt
It gets her off to see a person crying
She's just the kind that you can't do without
She's a devil in disguise you can see it in her eyes
She's telling dirty lies she's a devil in disguise in disguise
Her number always turns up in your pocket
Whenever you are looking for a dime
It's all right to call her but I'll bet you
The moon is full and your just wasting time

    General CommentThe name was hastily changed to "Devil in Disguise" after the Christine of this title (known to both Parsons and Hillman) died suddenly.

    Song FactYes, it was Christine Hinton! She also inspired the song "Guinevere" from CSNY.

    John Einarson wrote on Hot Burritos: The True Story of The Flying Burrito Brothers:
    “The Christine in the song was Christine Hinton. It was written about her. When Gram and I were having our individual marital problems, Christine Hinton was right in there stirring it all up. So we got her in a song. She was Crosby's girlfriend at the time. It was a very incestuous social scene back then. We were mad at her, which is why the lyrics came out like that. When the poor girl was killed we changed it to 'Devil In Disguise,' but of course that was after the album had come out. I don't like those lyrics much now. They're just too misogynous."
