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

I once had a girl Or should I say she once had me She showed me her room Isn't it good Norwegian wood? She asked me to stay And she told me to sit anywhere So I looked around And I noticed there wasn't a chair I sat on a rug biding my time Drinking her wine We talked until two and then she said "It's time for bed" She told me she worked In the morning and started to laugh I told her I didn't And crawled off to sleep in the bath And when I awoke I was alone This bird had flown So I lit a fire Isn't it good Norwegian wood?

Court is in session, a verdict is in No appeal on the docket today just my own sin The walls cold and pale, the cage made of steel Screams fill the room, alone I drop and kneel Silence now the sound, my breath the only motion around Demons cluttering around, my face showing no emotion Shackled by my sentence, expecting no return Here there is no penance, my skin begins to burn So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride (And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun A sun that shines on only some We the meek are all in one I hear a thunder in the distance, see a vision of a cross I feel the pain that was given on that sad day of loss A lion roars in the darkness, only he holds the key A light to free me from my burden and grant me life eternally Should have been dead on a Sunday morning, banging my head No time for mourning Ain't got no time Should have been dead on a Sunday morning, banging my head No time for mourning Ain't got no time So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride (And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun A sun that shines on only some We the meek are all in one I cry out to God, seeking only His decision Gabriel stand and confirms, I've created my own prison I cry out to God, seeking only His decision Gabriel stand and confirms, I've created my own prison So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride (And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun A sun that shines on only some We the meek are all in one (And I said, ohh) So I held my head up high Hiding hate that burns inside Which only fuels their selfish pride (And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun A sun that shines on only some We the meek are all in one Should have been dead on a Sunday morning, banging my head No time for mourning Ain't got no time

There's a new sun arisin' (In your eyes) I can see a new horizon (Realize) That will keep me realizin' You're the biggest part of me Need your lovin' here beside me (Shine the light) Need it close enough to guide me (All my life) I've been hoppin' you would find me You're the biggest part of me Well, make a wish, baby And I will make it come true Make a list baby, of the things I'll do for you Ain't no risk in lettin' my love rain down on you So we can wash away the past so that we may start anew Risin' over my shoulder (Love flows) Gettin' better as we're older (All I know) All I wanna do is hold her She's the life that breathes in me Got a feelin' that forever Together) We are gonna stay together (Forever) For me there's nothing better You're the biggest part of me Well, make a wish, baby And I will make it come true Make a list baby, of the things I'll do for you Ain't no risk in lettin' my love rain down on you So we can wash away the past so that we may start anew More than an easy feelin' She brings joy to me How can I tell you what it means to me Flow like a lazy river For an eternity I finally found someone who believes in me And I'll never leave (Now I've found all I need) Need your lovin' here beside me (To guide me) Keep it close enough to guide me (Inside of me) From the fears that are inside of me You're the biggest part of me Got a feelin' that forever (Together) We are gonna stay together (Forever) From now until forever You're the biggest part or me You're the life that breathes in me You're the biggest part of me You changed my life You made it bright And I'll be a savior to you For the rest of my life Oh, oh the biggest part of me

I may not always love you But long as there are stars above you You never need to doubt it I'll make you so sure about it God only knows what I'd be without you If you should ever leave me Though life would still go on, believe me The world could show nothing to me So what good would living do me God only knows what I'd be without you God only knows what I'd be without you If you should ever leave me Though life would still go on, believe me The world could show nothing to me So what good would living do me God only knows what I'd be without you God only knows what I'd be without you God only knows what I'd be without you God only knows what I'd be without you God only knows what I'd be without you (God only knows) God only knows what I'd be without you (what I'd be without you)

Summertime and the livin' is easy Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high Your daddy's rich and your ma is good lookin' So hush, little baby, don't you cry One of these mornin's, you're gonna rise up singin' You're gonna spread your wings and you'll take to the sky But 'til that mornin', there is nothin' can harm you With Daddy and Mummy, standing by Don't you, don't you cry

And this was a particularly good night indeed.” The recording is a document of one evening of music recorded live, no overdubs, no second takes and with all the nuances, surprises and magic known as Jazz. In rotation nationwide, achieving “Chartbound” status on Jazz Weekly national radio, and garnering positive reviews, One Night at Chris’ is perhaps Dave’s greatest work, yet!
