RED VELVET (Ian Tyson 1965) As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 1998 Four months ago in April On a day coach she came down And the dusty autumn winds begin to blow. I shoulda known I couldn't hold her Living out so far from town And the nights to come are long and slow to go. Well now she's up and left me And went walkin' down the line The dusty autumn winds begin to blow. All dressed up in red velvet And her high heeled shoes so fine And the nights to come are long and slow to go. Well if I had only known before we kissed You can't keep red velvet on a poor dirt farm like this. Oh now she's gone and left me And went walkin' down the line And the dusty autumn winds begin to blow. (bridge) Well I'll sit and count the evening stars As they walk around And the dusty autumn winds begin to blow. Then I'll call my dog and I'll take the truck And I'll drive on into town 'Cause the nights to come are long and slow to go. Well I'll sit and count the evenin' stars As they walk around The dusty autumn winds begin to blow. Then I'll call my dog and I'll take the truck And I'll drive on into town The nights to come are long and slow to go. And those dusty autumn winds begin to blow.
