"Evil Ways" as written by and Clarence Arthur Henry....
You've got to change your evil ways, baby
Before I stop lovin' you
You've got to change, baby
And every word that I say is true
You got me runnin' and hidin' all over town
You got me sneakin' and a-peepin' and runnin' you down
This can't go on, Lord knows you got to change, baby

When I come home, baby
My house is dark and my pots are cold
You're hangin' round, baby
With Jean and Joan and-a who knows who
I'm gettin' tried of waitin' and foolin' around
I'll find somebody who won't make me feel like a clown
This can't go on, Lord knows you got to change, baby

When I come home, baby
My house is dark and my pots are cold
You're hangin' round, baby
With Jean and Joan and-a who knows who
I'm gettin' tried of waitin' and foolin' around
I'll find somebody who won't make me feel like a clown
This can't go on, Lord knows you got to change, baby

    General Commenti ant believe there arent more comments on this song. This song is the bomb! Whoever says nonpoint's cover of this is better should go jump off a bridge Satnata has 100 times the skill that the guitarist of nonpoint will ever have. Santana is a musical genious!

    Lyric CorrectionIncorrect lyrics:
    When I come home... baby
    My house is dark and my THOUGHTS are cold

    Correct lyrics:
    When I come home... baby
    My house is dark and my POTS are cold

    ----------------------------------------

    The boyfriend comes home, and his girlfriend isn't there. Instead, she's out with her friends. Thus, his house is dark and his pots are cold (i.e., she's not home cooking for him).

    His THOUGHTS may be cold as well, but the lyrics address the POTS issue.

    General CommentGood tune, odd topic, but relects feeling of a guy who comes home and his girl is elsewhere rather than looking after him and the home and he has had enough!
