Four months ago in April on a daycoach she came down
And the dust autumn winds begin to blow
Shoulda known I couldn't hold livin' out so far from town
And the nights to come are long are slow to go
Well now she's up and left me and when walkin' down the line
And the dusty autumn wind begins to blow
All dressed up in red velvet and he high heeled shoes so fine
And the nights to come are long and slow to go

Well if I had only know before we kissed
You can't keep red velvet on a poor dirt farm like this

Oh now she's gone and left me and went walkin' down the line
And the dusty autumn winds begin to blow

Well I'll sit and count the evening stars as they walk around
When the dusty autumn winds begin to blow
Then I'll call my dog and I'll take the truck and I'll drive on into town
Cause the nights to come are long and slow to go

Well I'll sit and count the evening stars as they walk around
When the dusty autumn winds begin to blow
Then I'll call my dog and I'll take the truck and I'll drive on into town
Cause the nights to come are long and slow to go
And those dusty autumn winds begin to blow
