Evil Woman

Electric Light Orchestra

You made a fool of me
but them broken dreams have got to end.

Hey, woman, you got the blues
'cause you ain't got no one else to use.
There's an open road that leads nowhere,
so just make some miles between here and there.
There's a hole in my head where the rain comes in.
You took my body and played to win.
Ha ha, woman, it's a cryin' shame
but you ain't got nobody else to blame.

Evil woman, evil woman,
evil woman, evil woman.

Rolled in from another town,
hit some gold too hot to settle down.
But a fool and his money soon go separate ways
and you found a fool lyin' in a daze.
Ha ha, woman, what you gonna do?
You destroyed all the virtues that the Lord gave you.
It's so good that you're feelin' pain
but you better get your face on board the very next train.

Evil woman, evil woman,
evil woman, evil woman.

Evil woman, how you done me wrong
but now you're tryin' to wail a different song.
Ha ha, funny how you broke me up,
you made the wine now you drink a cup.
I came runnin' every time you cried,
thought I saw love smilin' in your eyes.
Ha ha, very nice to know
that you ain't got no place left to go.

Evil woman, evil woman,
evil woman, evil woman.

Evil woman, evil woman... (repeat & fade)
