"Friend of the Devil" as written by and Jerry Garcia....
I walked to the window turned out the light
Looked at the city went through the night
Yeah I stood in the darkness stood all alone
Thank God for California thank God I'm going home

Thats right you hurt me baby hurt me good
Hurt me like no one else ever could
Cut me down the middle face down in the dirt
And we both know it's too late to save it
Betcha feel proud about it baby
You taught me how to hurt

DC-10, 10:45
Halfway to L.A. red in the eyes
Might be the devil, might just be his friend
It don't make no difference you ain't gettin' me again

Thats right you hurt me baby hurt me good
Hurt me like no one else ever could
Cut me down the middle face down in the dirt
And we both know it's too late to save it
Betcha feel proud about it baby
You taught me how to hurt

I lit it out from Reno
I was trailed by twenty hounds
Didn't get to sleep last night
'Til the morning came around

Set out runnin' 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

Well, I ran into the devil
And he loaned me twenty bills
I spent the night in Utah
In a cave up in the hills

I set out runnin' but I take my time
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
If I get home before daylight
Just might get some sleep tonight

But I ran down to the levee
But the devil caught me there
And he took my twenty dollars
And he slicked back all my hair

I set out runnin' but I take my time
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
If I get home before daylight
Just might get some sleep tonight

I've 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
The second one is prison, babe, the sheriff's on my trail
And if he catches up with me, I'll spend my life in jail

Well, I got a wife in Chino, baby
One in Cherokee
One that says she's got my child
She don't look like me

Set out runnin' 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 set out runnin' 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
