Lyrics

The weight of all I’ve done
In this wicked life of mine
Burdens my each step
And it haunts my waking mind
Sometimes in the night
Looking through my kitchen door I’m afraid an evil wind is gonna blow

Well I grew up in the country
On an eighty-acre plot
We had corn and we had cattle That we raised and sold and bought I was just fourteen
When I fell so deep in love
And I felt that evil wind begin to blow

The moment I first saw her
at the market in the fall
I knew that I would have her
Or I’d have nothing at all
Each step I took towards her
Was like fighting through a storm
An evil wind, an evil wind is gonna blow

(chorus) An evil wind is gonna blow And bring that woman to my door She’s a storm cloud hangin’ in the air It wasn’t right, it wasn’t fair
It’s the way it had to go
An evil wind, an evil wind is gonna blow

It wasn’t very long before I asked her for her hand She said we had to wait
Until I was a man
But I was eager, I was foolish
And I’ve never done things slow
In her hair an evil wind began to blow

Well time is like molasses
And I knew I couldn’t wait
I’d climb in through her window
And we would run away
But when I went that night I found
She wasn’t there alone
In my heart an evil wind began to blow

Well now I can’t remember
what was going through my head
My blood turned to fire
And my face turned red
And I flew into that room
Like a moth to a torch
An evil wind, an evil wind is gonna blow

(chorus)

I see her in my dreams now
Each and every night
I see her in the air
At the break of morning light
And I see her in my doorway
Out the corner of my eye
An evil wind, an evil wind is gonna blow
An evil wind, an evil wind is gonna blow
