Lyrics

Ashes in the Wind

With tears in her eyes, she sees in black and white
The happy couple on their wedding day
A razor blade in hand, as neatly as she can
She cuts that picture from its silver frame

Every letter that he wrote, his fiddle and all his clothes
On their double bed, she puts 'em in a pile
It's time for striking back, and with a single wooden match
She guarantees no trace is left behind

He gave her a ring, his name and his word
To have and to hold until the end
But true love has been lost, betrayed and double-crossed
And all that's left is ashes in the wind
Ain't nothing left but ashes in the wind

On the other side of town, two lovers laugh out loud
Holed up in a musty motel room
They don't know they've been caught or the fury Hell hath wrought
But it's in the air -- they're gonna find out soon

CHORUS

An awesome fire spread from that four-poster bed
It burned their white frame house plumb to the ground
They searched for her remains, but their efforts were in vain
In the smoky air she was nowhere to be found

CHORUS
