The painted lady is waiting
Waiting for you to do wrong
She'll tear your heart out, make you cry
Then chill your bones till you die

Who is this woman in disguise
Who sees through you with fiery eyes
And draws the life-blood from you

The devil's daughter is she
Who seized the new tide from you
The time has come to make a stand
You're fighting over your land
And will she take you in hand
Make you a grey hunted man
You've got to fight for your soul

All that I ask for is time enough
To remember all the dreams
Leave it to me to fight
Let me come along with the scene
Slipping away when I could have
What I had in mind
This part of me that I tried in my heart to be

When is she coming to you
Or have you let her slip through
Her blazing eyes still cling to you
And tick the debt on by through

The painted lady is waiting
Waiting for you to do wrong
The painted lady is waiting
Waiting for you to do wrong
