Running With The Devil è la prima traccia del disco d’esordio (eponimo) dei Van Halen, uscito nel 1978 e divenuto uno dei loro migliori successi, certificato “diamante” per il numero di vendite che ha totalizzato: 10 milioni soltanto negli Usa.
Nelle testo, la canzone è ispirata a quella, uscita qualche anno prima, degli Ohio Players (band americana funk e R&B) dal titolo Runnin’ From The Devil. Nel 2009, il canale musicale americano VH1 l’ha piazzata al nono posto tra le migliori canzoni hard rock di tutti i tempi.

Proponiamo la tablatura per chitarra dettagliata di alcune parti vocali, più il testo completo.

Testo Lyrics

Yeah, Yeah!
Ah, yeah!

I live my life like there’s no tomorrow
and all I’ve got, I had to steal
Least I don’t need to beg or borrow
Yes I’m livin’ at a pace that kills

Oooh, yeah
(Ahh!) Runnin’ with the devil (Ahh-hah! Yeah!)
(Woo-hoo-oo!) Runnin’ with the devil
I’m gonna tell ya all about it

I found the simple life ain’t so simple
When I jumped out, on that road
I got no love, no love you’d call real
Ain’t got nobody, waitin’ at home

(Ah, yeah-ah!)
Runnin’ with the devil
(God damn it lady. You know I ain’t lyin’ to ya)
(I’m only gonna tell you one time-ya!)
Runnin’ with the devil
(Yes I am! Yeah!)

(Guitar Solo)
Woo!

Woo!

You know I, I found the simple life
Weren’t so simple, no
When I jumped out, on that road
Got no love, no love you’d call real
Got nobody, waitin’ at home

(Ah, yeah!)
Runnin’ with the devil
(Hold on. Hold on, I’m runnin’! Ah, yeah!)
Runnin’ with the devil
(Uh! Uh! Come on, one more time)

(Guitar Solo)

(Ha-yeah!)
Runnin’ with the devil
(Oh, yeah! Ya-yeah!)
Runnin’ with the devil
(Woo! Woo!)
Runnin’ with the devil
(Ah-ha, yeah! Ah-ha, yeah! Ah-hah, yeah!)
Runnin’ with the devil (Woo!)
