  • If you're in Charleston look out for a woman
    Hanging out in a bright red Cadillac
    She took my money, she left me crying
    And I don't know will I ever make it back?

    Oh Yolanda, why you forsake me?
    Why you just lay, lay, lay my body down?
    Oh Yolanda, why did you leave me
    In this wilderness with no money down?

    I was wealthy and lonely when I met her
    Had a house, a job and a Cadillac
    A lovely wife, a beautiful daughter
    I lost them all when she called and I answered back

    Oh Yolanda, why you forsake me?
    Why you just lay, lay, lay my body down?
    Oh Yolanda, why did you leave me
    In this wilderness with no money down?

    If you're in Charleston look out for a woman
    Hanging out in a bright red Cadillac
    She took my money, she left me crying
    And I don't know will I ever make it back?

    Oh Yolanda, why you forsake me?
    Why you just lay, lay, lay my body down?
    Oh Yolanda, why did you leave me
    In this wilderness with no money down
    In this wilderness with no money down?

    Why did you leave me?
    You're gone, oh now you're gone
    Where have you gone? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
