"Wild Wind" lyrics - ROBERT EARL KEEN

"Wild Wind"

Down on Main Street after sundown
Good Time Charlie and Wandering Bill
Thought they might hold up old Hoppy's Drive In
One got away one never will

And thats the way it goes around here
I think everybody knows
Thats the song we've been singin' for years
Thats the way the wild wind blows

Too tall Annie kept her money
In a Bible she never read
They found Lefty her first ex-husband
In his new pickup truck at the bottom of the river bed


Luther Martin he ain't got no money
But he sells papers and buys his wine
His great granddaddy owned half of Main Street
Luther's daddy didn't have a dime


Ain't no secret ol Doc Skinner
Wrote prescriptions made lots of friends
He could dance like nobody's business
Folks around here are sure missing him
