Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, and space rock, and for live performances of long musical improvisation. "Their music," writes Lenny Kaye, "touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists." These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead "the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world." They were ranked 57th in the issue The Greatest Artists of all Time by Rolling Stone magazine.

I lit out from Reno, i was trailed by twenty hounds
Didn't get to sleep last night 'till 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.

Ran into the devil, babe, he loaned me twenty bills
I spent the night in Utah in a cave up in the hills.

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 ran down to the levee but the devil caught me there
He took my twenty dollar bill and vanished in the air.

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.

Got two reasons why i cry away each lonely night,
The first one's named sweet Anne Marie, and she's my hearts 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.

Got a wife in chino, babe, and one in Cherokee
The first one says she's got my child, but it 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.
