1. Devil Wind

From the recording Fountain of Love


Devil Wind
The devil wind’s a blowing
blowing hard in from the east
and there’s a full moon rising
no way to tame the beast

Sweeping ‘cross the Borrego sands
rattling our windows and doors
a lone coyote’s howling
out on the desert floor

Everything around here baby
is dried up as a bone
and it’s the same old game,
someone gets too careless
and everything goes up in flames

On the ridge a brush fire’s burning
we are packed and ready to go
tonight our fate will be decided
by which way the devil wind blows
