She was a shark smile in a yellow van
She came around and I stole a glance in my youth
A vampire
Evelyn shown quiet as roses sting
It came over me at a bad time
But who wouldn't ride on a moonlit line?
Had her in my eye, 85 down the road of a dead end gleam

And she said woo
Baby, take me
And I said woo
Baby, take me too

It came over her at a bad time
Riding through Winona down the dotted line
Held us gunning out
Ninety miles down the road of a dead end dream
She looked over with a part smile
Caught up in the twinkle, it could take awhile
And the money pile on the dashboard fluttering

As she said woo
Baby, take me
And I said woo
Baby, take me too

Evelyn's kiss was oxygen
I leaned over to take it in
As we went howling through the edge of south Des Moines
It came over me at a bad time
She burned over the double line
She impaled as I reached my hand for the guardrail
Ooh, the guardrail
Ooh, the guardrail

And she said woo
Baby, take me
And I said woo
Baby, take me too

She said woo
Baby, take me
And I said woo
Baby, take me too

The baby in the photo, is that the lead singer?
Fantastic song. This is a great band.

I'm 74 3/4 -- and I just "discovered" Big Thief today, and I love this song. So am I still hip?
Like the song I recently heard on RP from their record, Masterpiece, this feels like a really nice mix of good old storytelling and music with a hint of Country; not too much, mind you, but just the right amount, in my opinion...
That's 3 Big Thief songs today...is BillG up to something?  Or was it just an epiphany?

It seems RP has been adding some new music lately. It's great to have good new music in the mix. Thanks Bill/Rebecca!



Noticed this too - it is refreshing - keep it up B&R!
