Lady Evil

Album: Heaven and Hell (1980)
  • There's a place just south of Witches' Valley
    Where they say the wind won't blow
    And they only speak in whispers of her name

    There's a lady they say who feeds the darkness
    It eats right from her hand
    With a crying shout she'll search you out
    And freeze you where you stand

    Lady evil, evil
    She's a magical, mystical woman
    Lady evil, evil in my mind
    She's queen of the night
    All right

    In a place just south of Witches' Valley
    Where they say the rain won't fall
    Thunder cracks the sky, it makes you bleed, yeah
    There's a lady they say who needs the darkness
    She can't face the light
    With an awful shout, she'll find you out
    And have you for the night

    Lady Evil, evil
    She's a magical, mystical woman
    Lady Evil, evil on my mind
    She's queen of the night

    So if you ever get to Witches' Valley
    Don't dream or close your eyes
    And never trust your shadow in the dark
    'Cause there's a lady I know who takes your vision
    And it turns all around
    The things you see are what to be, lost and never found

    Lady evil, evil
    She's a magical, mystical woman
    Lady evil, evil on my mind
    She's queen of the night
    Gonna do it right ?
    She's the queen of sin
    Look out, she'll pull you in
