The Devil Ain't A Lonely Woman's Friend
Recorded by Red Steagall
Written by Dallas Frazier and Sanger D. Shafer

C Am C Am
Barely past fourteen Ginger Mae met up with Shane
F G7 C
Carrying a child without a name
Am C Am
The only thing she had was a love forsaken past
F C A7
And a song that caused a shiver when she sang (when she sang)

D7 G7 D7
That old Mississippi river ain’t the Jordan
G7 D7
And the state of Tennessee ain’t the promised land
G7 D7 A7 B7
Memphis Tennessee or Jerusalem
G7 D7
And the devil ain’t a lonely woman’s friend

C Am C Am
Looking middle aged twenty-one found Ginger Mae
F G7 C
Shackled by the demons of cocaine
Am C Am
Destitute and weak the pusher kept her on the street
F C A7
When a daughter of misfortune cried insane (and she sang)

Repeat #2

C Am C Am
Almost forty three Ginger Mae gave up her dream
F G7 C
She could hear the river call her name
Am C Am
Standing on the edge of that big ol’ lonely bridge
F C A7
She cried forgive me Lord and then she sang (and she sang)

Repeat #2 x2
