MINISTRY : FRIEND OF THE DEVIL (1994)

“Εκτός προγράμματος”, η live, ακουστική εκτέλεση του κομματιού των Grateful Dead από τους Ministry έρχεται από ηρωϊκές εποχές. 1994, δύο χρόνια μετά το Psalm 69, και δυο πριν το Filth Pig.
“Off schedule”, the live acoustic performance of
Grateful Dead song by Ministry, comes from heroic times. 1994, two years after Psalm 69, and two before Filth Pig.

I lit out from Reno
I was trailed by twenty hounds
Didn’t get to sleep that 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 he 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
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
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
First one says she’s got my child
But it don’t look like me
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

      Ministry diehard here. And never big fan of the Dead. 😈😇
      Thank you!

    This is so cool! I had no idea. Love this better than the Dead’s version. (I’m not a Dead Head, but I’ll give them their props!) Thank you!

      Not a Deadhead either. I’m happy you like Al’s version more.
