Evil
"If you're a long way from home
Can't sleep at night
Grab your telephone
Somethin' just ain't right
That's evil, evil is goin' on wrong
I am warnin' you brother
You better watch your happy home
Well, long way from home and
Can't sleep at all
You know another mule
Is kickin' in your stall
That's evil, evil is goin' on wrong
I am warnin' you brother
You better watch your happy home
You better catch him
'Cause somethin' wrong
In your home
Well, if you call her on the telephone
And she answers awful slow
Grab the first train smokin'
If you have to hobo
That's evil, evil is goin' on wrong
I am warnin' you brother
You better watch your happy home
If you make it to your house
Knock on the front door
Run 'round to the back
You'll catch him just before he go
That's evil, evil is goin' on
I am warnin' you brother
You better watch your happy home"
