Eva

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

You can't outfox, you can' outrace
Guess it's time to turn and face
Miles too big by the looks of it
God knows it may shrink to fit
Blame it on the shifting times
Some are yours, none are mine
I know when I'm lost, don't need a sign

Chorus
Hey little Eva, bomp-sh-bomp
Shake that thing and never stop
The boom may fall, the rocks may roll
But, hey, little Eva, I love you so
Hey, little Eva
Hey, little Eva

The dam burst and the flood thereof
Swirled through this night of love
And if that wasn't quite enough
We asked some further meaning of
You and were such a pair
People used to stare
I never could tell from pity or from envy

[chorus]

Hey, little Eva
Where do we go from here?
Ain't no use to call for help
There's no one near
Maybe we should curse or fret
Trust to fate or pray
Or bide awhile in quiet
'Cause there's not a lot to say

[chorus]

Some get wrecked and then complain
It's their pleasure to show their pain
My little Eva got tears in her eyes
She don't hurt, she just loves to cry
When she really feels the pain
She don't cry at all
Just stands there grinning
With her back against the wall

[chorus]

Hey little Eva, bomp-sh-bomp
Shake that thing and never stop
The boom may fall, the rocks may roll
But, hey, little Eva, I love you so
