Robert Earl Keen – Wild Wind lyrics

Down on Main Street after sundown
Goodtime Charlie and Wanderin' Bill
Thought they might hold up Happy's Drive-in
One got away and one never will

That's the way it goes around here
I think everybody knows
That's the song they've been singin' for years
That's the way wild wind blows

Too tall Annie kept her money
In a Bible she never read
They found Lefty, her first ex-husband,
In his new pickup truck at the bottom of the riverbed

(Repeat Chorus)

Luther Martin, he ain't got nobody
But he sells papers and buys his wine
His granddaddy owned half of Main Street
Luther's daddy didn't have a dime

(Repeat Chorus)

Ain't no secret old Doc Skinner
Wrote prescriptions and made lots of friends
He could dance like nobody's business
Folks around here are sure missing him

(Repeat Chorus)
