"Victim Of Changes" as written by and Glenn Raymond/halford Tipton....
Whiskey woman don't you know that you are drivin' me insane
The liquor you give stems your will to live and gets right to my brain
Don't you know you're driving me insane
You're tryin' to find your way through life
You're tryin' to get some new direction
Another woman's got her man
But she won't find no new connection

Takes another drink or two
Things look better when she's through

Take another look around, you're not goin' anywhere
Realized you're gettin' old and no one seems to care
You're tryin' to find your way again
You're tryin' to find some new
Another woman's got her man
But she won't find a new

Takes another drink or two
Things look better when she's through

You 'bin foolin' with some hot guy
I want to know why is it why
Get up get out you know you really blew it
I've had enough, I've had enough, good God pluck me

Once she was wonderful
Once she was fine
Once she was beautiful
Once she was mine (She was mine)

Now change has come over her body
She doesn't see me anymore
Now change has come over her body
She doesn't see me anymore

Changes, changes, changes, changes
Victim of changes

No, no, no, no

    General CommentThe original title of the song was "Whiskey Woman/Victim Of Changes". The first half of the song, Whiskey Woman, up until the K.K./Glenn solo is about a man talking about his woman who is an alcoholic and has cheated on him. The second half of the song, Victim Of Changes, is about the man and how he is, in fact, a victim of changes. His woman has changed and she isn't beautiful and wonderful like she once was. Very powerful song. Rob Halford really shows how well he can sing in this song.

    General Commentman does Rob Halford fucking WAIL on this song. sheer metal, or as sheer metal as you could get in '76.

    seems its about some woman who was once beautiful but got hooked on alcohol and her life took a turn for the worst. no one seemed to notice her anymore. she became a victim of changes

    General CommentThe song is a combination of two songs by two Judas Priest singers: "Whiskey Woman" by Priest founder Al Atkins and "Red Light Lady" by Rob Halford.

    This track could well be partly about prostitution - "Another woman got her man / She won't find no new connection"

    General CommentMasterblasterpiece, the song that launched Priest. The song is quite progressive, with two seperate sections, the first beinf "Whiskey Woman" and the second "Victim Of Changes".

    General CommentI can relate a lot to the lyrics of this song, especially this part:

    'Once she was wonderful
    Once she was fine
    Once she was beautiful
    Once she was mine...she was mine

    Now change has come over her body, she doesn't see me anymore
    Now change has come over her body, she doesn't see me anymore '

    ...because a while back I went out with this girl, and over time she got sick and at the same time our relationship fell apart. I think it would have fallen apart anyways her body just happened to be going through changes. So I can take 'changes came over her body, she doesn't see me any more' completely literally in regards to that. That bit makes me sad. Though as a P.S she got completely better and is now living happily.

    And yeah the song is most likely about alcoholism and the damage it has done on a relationship. My example was more about a sickness, but it can still apply. It's a fine portrait of how life changes and things fall apart. Halford sounds ace.

    General CommentComes in just under Green Manaliche for me but hey Please play both at my funeral.Hauntingly Beautifull and Head bangin Hard!The original member of the band wrote it but Halford made it his own.(ps I allways thought he was Gay,but it didnt matter to me.)The song should be taken litterally.No hidden meaning,s.
