Well, the light's turnin' gray, nearly eve'ry day
Come a walkin' into town and try to find the way
Well, I've only got a nickel, got to score myself a dime
And try to make it 'til tomorrow, buy a little more time
Evil woman, evil woman
Evil woman

Well, my damsel she's a woman with coal black hair
Don't you look her in her eye when she starts to stare
'Cause her beauty drive you crazy
And her potions steal your soul
No matter how you beg her she don't ever let you go
Well, you can cry, you can plead
It won't help you none
She'll keep you in the shadows, never see the sun
Try to run, try to hide
Find a place to stay
No matter where you go you can't get away

Evil woman, evil woman
Evil woman, oh

For evil woman set my life free
I can't go on livin' this way, no
Evil woman set my life free
Pullin' me down, down
I can't go on this way
Down, down my head will go against the floor again
Down, down my head will go against the floor again
Down, down I can't go on this way
Down, down my head will go again
Down, down I can't go on this way
Down, down my head will go again
Down, down I can't go on this way
Down, down my head will go again
Down, down I can't go on this way
Down, down, down

Well, the light's turnin' gray
Nearly ev'ry day
Come a walkin' into town
Try to find my way
I said I only got a nickel
Got to score myself a dime
Try to make it 'til tomorrow
Buy a little more time
My damsel she's a woman with coal black hair
Don't you look her in her eye when she starts to stare
'Cause her beauty drive you crazy
And her potions steal your soul
No matter how you beg her she don't ever let you go


Evil woman, evil woman
Evil woman
