Must have been the devil who changed my mind

must have been the wind blowing not me crying

half the joy of leaving was the space I left behind

now I`m back, angelheaded holloweyed

placed myself at the eye of the storm

just didn`t see the signpost to scorn

the blue sky wrinkled through my tears

then darkness grounded all my fears

I gave him my sugar; he switched it for salt

should have seen him coming that`s always my fault


rocks for my pillow and sand for my bed

for better or worse I left him for dead

but two rivers to each other run

words that shook me like the kick of a gun

had something in my heart ain`t got no name

turned out he felt the same

ain`t it lonesome, ain`t it sad

I was the only happiness he ever had

by Indian River the vows were said

in a red devil`s dress I was wed


bit*h`s baby round lady

came to me in a dream

then lightning struck and thunder roared

and nothing was as it seemed

a two-headed doctor walked on the water

and buried a lemon outside my door

he turned and laughed, threw up his hands

when I asked him what it was for

he sang `ships in the ocean rocks in the sea,

blond-headed woman made a fool outta me`

then everything went crazy

my shoes filled with blood

the water rose the wind did howl

the river looked ready to flood

I left my man asleep to drown

and ran without looking back around


ring the bells of mercy

send the sinnerman home

the keys to the kingdom are lost and gone

and I`m left to die alone

all these girls grown old now

all that long hair in the grave

realize what`s done is done

it`s far too late to be saved
