Description
This is one of my "big hits" I guess - a popular original that we do in the band (Three Husbands on the Loose). I wrote it back in the 70s when I was listening to a lot of Southern Rock / California Rock stuff. I always thought a mariachi-style trumpet solo would be cool in the middle. Hope you enjoy. (Need to get a drum track on this someday, too.)

Lyrics
I’ve been ridin’ all night on this hot dusty trail
I don’t know how I look, but I feel mighty pale
The moon is refectin’ off brush-covered hills
And the night wind is blowin’ ocassional chills

I’m feelin’ so empty, I’m feelin’ so cold
I’m feelin’ so tired and I’m feelin’ so old
I am ridin’ hard, but I’m not ridin’ free
‘Cause that devil-eyed woman is followin’ me

CHORUS:
And I feel like I been down so long
And I know that woman done me wrong (done me wrong)
I just can’t get away.

She’s hauntin’ my trail and she’s hauntin’ my dreams
That innocent lover si not what she seems
This road out before me, I know where it leads
That devil-eyed woman, I know what she needs

That devil-eyed woman would stand in my way
Trapped in her love adn I can’t get away
I’m runnin’ away from the things that I know
And that devil-eyed woman will not let me go

CHORUS:
And I feel like I been down so long
And I know that woman done me wrong (done me wrong)
I just can’t get away.

"Big hits"
I can definitely see why you would characterize this that way. Very nice western fell to it as well.

Has a certain Eagles sound to it
especially in the harmony parts, but also a little like Crosby, Still, Nash, & Young.

Great lyrics Dave and some really fantastic vocals and harmonies in this. Now you need to get those drums in there, or not, sound really good to me as is.

Do you know ..
.. I think this could be done like a "Levellers" style tune .. you've probably never heard of them .. but check 'em out you might hear what I mean. I think that direction would suit better than mariachi-style trumpet to be honest. Cool song.

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
