Wild Wind (Album Version)

Wild Wind (Album Version)

Robert Earl Keen, Jr.

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

[Chorus:]
And that's the way it goes around here
I think everybody knows
That's the song we've been singin' for years
That's 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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]
