Ill Wind from the album Homesick Heroes

Well he found her in two bit joint down in Dallas
(?) for the juke box serving up beer
Fooled around, messed around, fell in love
He put a ring on her finger and he brought her back here
Atlanta couldn't hold her but he brought her back here

He bought a big house on Peach Tree Avenue
Tried his best to give her her heart's desire
Thought he had her wrapped around his little finger
She left town on the Midnight Flyer
Ain't enough whiskey left to put out the fire

She got your number, big man
She's got you crying in your bourbon drinking when you're all alone
She's got your number big man
She took your love, and your heart, and your credit cards
And now she's gone

Did you ever see a big man crying like a baby
Thought he had it figured out 'til yesterday
When a ill wind come a blowin 'cross Georgia
She's spreading her wings and they blew her away
To who knows where
And I wish I didn't care

He was doing pretty good and the scars were healing
Then she called him one night on the telephone
Said she wanted them to start all over
She was feeling bad, she was feeling all alone
He sent her a ticket she was coming back home

He met her at the airport, took her home and loved her
She told him all about how lonely she'd been
A rolling stone'll crush a loser in a minute
Stone keeps a rollin, the loser can't win
Two weeks later, she was gone again

She got your number, big man
She's got you crying in your bourbon drinking when you're all alone
She's got your number big man
She took your love, and your heart, and your credit cards
And now she's gone

Did you ever see a big man crying like a baby
Thought he had it figured out 'til yesterday
When a ill wind come a blowin 'cross Georgia
She's spreading her wings and they blew her away
To who knows where
And I wish I didn't care

Did you ever see a big man crying like a baby
Thought he had it figured out 'til yesterday
When a ill wind come a blowin 'cross Georgia
She's spread her wings and they blew her away
To who knows where
And I wish I didn't care
