Blow, ill wind, blow away,
Let me rest today,
You're blowin' me no good,
No good.

Go, ill wind, go away,
Skies are oh, so gray,
Around my neighborhood,
And that's no good.

You're only misleadin' the sunshine I'm needin',
Ain't it a shame! Lord, it's so hard,
To keep up with troubles that creep up from out of nowhere,
When love's to blame.

Go, ill wind, go away,
Let me rest today,
You're blowin' me no good,
No good,
No good.
