I found a comment under the lyrics of Evil Woman at:
<https://songmeanings.com/songs/view/113014/>

It says:

---------

In 2006, "Face the Music" was re-released,
with several bonus tracks, including a different,
"Stripped Down Mix" version of "Evil Woman".
That version includes a fourth verse:

Hang out for just a while
And I'll tell you a story that'll make you smile
'Bout a dark-eyed woman with a Cadillac
But all she had was on her back
Well, a fool rushed in, and thought he saw
Just the kind of woman that he'd adore
She lay beside him and turned on her charms
But this devil's woman sure knows how to do you wrong

So: a bonus version to the re-released album Face the Music...

Is this what you heard?
