(Overend watts/morgan fisher/ray major)

There's a rumour going roung this place
That you've been hanging around
If I find out that it's true
I'm telling you
Gonna put you in the ground

There's a kind of misty morning
As I'm looking out 'cross town
Thinking 'bout my friends
Remembering what they said
An' making me feel like a real lowdown

Well I saw that smoke stack lightning
When you pushed me to the brink
You got me worried, you got me mean
And when I'm mean I drink

And then a lot of wild talk was flying
About a tall cat sleeping around
Well I dunno who he is but I'm telling you this
When I catch up with him I'm gonna mow him down

When I get there tonight you better be back home
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
An' when I get there tonight you better be alone
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
'Cause when I get there tonight I'm gonna be insane
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
I've had enough of your lip gonna cause you some pain
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
I'm gonna jump on a train

Now you've burned out all my money
Just as much as you could take
And then your love turned bad and now I'm mad
'Cause I made a big mistake
But if you think I'm gonna take it
Lying down like a dog
Well you'd better think again
I'll fix you up for good
I told you I would
And I'm just about to jump on a real fast train

When I get there tonight you better be back home
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
When I get there tonight you better be alone
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
'Cause when I get there tonight I'm gonna be insane
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
Feel my temperature rise like a knife in my brain
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm

Oh, slow down!

Cat's all running for cover
'Cause there's no place left to hide
I've go a vengeance in my soul
And it will not be denied
You better get on your knees little girl
It's the only thing to do
I'm gonna make you sorry you were born
You better come right over get my hands on you

When I get there tonight you better be back home
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
When I get there tonight you better be alone
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
'Cause when I get there tonight I'm gonna be insane
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
Feel my temperature rise like a knife in my brain
There's an ill wind blowing and it's bringing a storm
