Jim Lauderdale – Upside Down lyrics

Hot winds blew down from the north
Cold winds blew up from the south
Sleigh bells ringing on July fourth
So help me baby shut my mouth

My wheels started running on low cost gas
Without a single knock or a ping
The birds in the trees began barking so fast
My hound dog started to sneeze

Chorus
My whole world turned upside down
The day you rambled into to town
The sun set east, the sun rose west
And the fish in the river did drown

The devil he handed out cookies and cake
Angels swore and spit on the ground
My whole world turned for heaven's sake
The day you started hanging around

My heart started running fast as it could
I felt love deep down in my feet
But turn it back around if you only would
Your love would make my life complete

[Chorus:]

The clocks ran backwards, going tock-tick-tock
The telephone chimed the hour
I put my shoe on under my sock
Added sugar to my coffee turned sour

I don't dare tell you that I love you so
The words would only come out wrong
I'm just hoping you will somehow know
That baby that's the short and long

[Chorus:]

My whole world turned upside down
The day you rambled into to town
