Evil
Howlin' Wolf Lyrics


If you're a long way from home
Can't sleep at night
Grab your telephone
Something just ain't right

That's evil
Evil is goin' on wrong
I am warning you, brother
You better watch your happy home
Well, long way from home and
Can't sleep at all
You know another mule is
Kickin' in your stall

That's evil
Evil is goin' on wrong
I am warnin you, brother
You better watch your happy home

You better catch him
'Cause somethin' wrong
In your home

Well, if ya call her on the telephone and she
Answers aweful slow
Grab the first train smokin' if you
Have to hobo

That's evil
Evil is goin' on wrong
I am warning you, brother
You better watch your happy home

If you make it to your house
Knock on the front door
Run around to the back, you'll catch him
Just before he go

And that's evil
Evil is goin' on
I am warnin you, brother
You better watch your happy home

Howlin' Wolf

If you're a long way from home
Can't sleep at night
Grab your telephone
Something just ain't right

That's evil
Evil is goin' on wrong
I am warnin' ya brother
You better watch your happy home

Well, long way from home and
Can't sleep at all
You know another mule
Is kickin' in your stall

That's evil
Evil is goin' on wrong
I am warnin' ya brother
You better watch your happy home

You better catch him
'Cause somethin' wrong
In your home

Well, if ya call her on the telephone
And she answers awful slow
Grab the first train smokin'
If you have to hobo

That's evil
Evil is goin' on wrong
I am warnin' ya brother
You better watch your happy home

If you make it to your house
Knock on the front door
Run around to the back
You'll catch him just before he go

That's evil
Evil is goin' on
I am warnin' ya brother
You better watch your happy home

@Jody Hakala The blues and gospel come from the same place.

Some people just don’t know good music, also some so-called religious people go around and thumbs down or complain if they think it’s evil, even though they rent listening to it, not the story. They don’t know poetry through music.

5 years later there are 16. What is wrong with those people???

The blues are scary to children used to bubble gum pop.
