About the Song

Stevie wrote “Kind of Woman” in Aspen, Colorado, in 1973. She also wrote “Landslide” at this time.

“‘Kind of Woman’ I wrote about Lindsey (Buckingham) when he went on the road with the Everly Brothers, and I was sure he was gonna meet somebody because it says, “Temptation falls in your path / No hesitation why you ask / You have another waiting at home / And yes she matters to you.” That was me, right? And then I thought… It says, “You didn’t mean to meet her you cry.” Right, right. “Oh, but the sun goes down every night / She came to you and you were alone / And yes she matters to you / It’s the kind of woman that’ll haunt you.” So it’s like, which is the kind of woman? Was it me or was it the woman that he would meet? I didn’t know. And then I’d never been on the road or I had no idea. I mean I had same thoughts that probably every little girl in the world thinks when a rock and roll band comes into town. As Joni Mitchell would say, “Don’t count on your plans with a rock and roll man.”

Lyrics

Temptation falls in your path
No hesitation why you ask
You have another waiting at home
And yet she matters to you

Kind of woman that’ll haunt you
She matters to you
She’s kind of woman that’ll haunt you
She matters to you

You didn’t mean to meet her you cried
Oh, but the sun goes down every night
She came to you and you were alone
So yes, does she matters to you

Kind of woman that’ll haunt you
Oh, kind of woman that’ll haunt you
She matters to you

Promised myself a long time ago
No, it would be difficult to let you go
Oh, if not at least within
The touch of my fingers
It’s close she keeps in heaven

Kind of woman that’ll haunt you
Heaven
Kind of woman that’ll haunt you
Is to be in heaven

Kind of woman that’ll haunt you
Is to be in heaven
I know, I know
Kind of woman that’ll haunt you
