Recorded live at the Aquarius Theatre, Boston
You know
If somebody, somewhere done you wrong
Oh, don't worry about your revenge, no

I said if somebody, somewhere done you wrong
Oh, don't worry about your revenge, no no
'Cause that's when evil
Oh, evil slips on in

Hey, when I first met you baby
You were nothing but a child
When I first met you baby
I used to let you run wild

But somewhere, somehow
Lord, I don't know how
All your goodness
Slipped away

And that's when evil
Yeah
Evil let it stay
Evil let it stay, yeah

Evil's with me in the morning
Evil's with me and I can't get away, no
But there's gonna come a time
Oh, when somebody else is gonna pay
Gonna pay baby
