Down on Main Street, after sundown
Good Time Charlie, Wonderin' Bill
Thought they might hold up ol' Happy's Drive-In
One got away, one never will.

That's the way it goes around here
I think everybody knows
That's the song they've singing 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 pick-up truck at the bottom of the river bed

That's the way it goes around here
I think everybody knows
And that's the song they've singing for years
That's the way the wild wind blows

And it blows

Luther Martin, he ain't got nobody
But he sells papers and he buys his wine
His great-granddaddy owned half of Main Street
Luther's daddy didn't have a dime

And that's the way it goes around here
I think everybody knows
And that's the song they've singing for years
That's the way the wild wind blows

Ain't no secret Old Doc Skinner
Wrote perscriptions, made lots of friends
He could dance like nobody's bussiness
Folks around here are sure missing him

And that's the way it goes around here
I think everybody knows
That's the song they've singing for years
That's the way the wild wind blows

And it blows
