Electric Light Orchestra - Evil Woman

You made a fool of me, but them broken dreams have got to end.

Hey woman, you got the blues, cos you aint got no one else to use.
There's an open road that leads nowhere, so just make some miles
Between here and there.
There's a hole in my head where the rain comes in,
You took my body and played to win,
Ha ha woman it's a crying shame,
But you aint got nobody else to blame.

[Chorus:]
E-evil woman, e-evil woman, e-evil woman, evil woman

Rolled in from another town,
Hit some gold too hot to settle down,
But a fool and his money soon go separate ways,
And you found a fool lyin in a daze,
Ha ha woman what you gonna do,
You destroyed all the virtues that the lord gave you,
It's so good that you're feeling pain,
But you better get your face on board the very next train.

[Chorus: Repeat]

Evil woman how you done me wrong,
But now you're tryin to wail a different song,
Ha ha funny how you broke me up, you made the wine now you
Drink the cup,
I came runnin every time you cried,
Thought I saw love smilin in your eyes,
Ha ha very nice to know, that you aint got no place left to go.

[Chorus: Repeat]

The strings effect near the end is sampled in The Pussycat Dolls' Beep (feat. will.i.am). The electronic guitar during the chorus is sampled in Daft Punk's Face to Face. According to the Evil Woman Songfacts, the line "There's a hole in my head where the rain comes in," was inspired by the Beatles song, "Fixing a Hole." The song also plays in the beginning of episode one of Peacock Original mini-series "Angelyne".
