"Evil Ways" is a song by Santana from their 1969 album Santana. It was written by Clarence (Sonny) Henry and recorded by jazz percussionist Willie Bobo in 1968 on his album of the same name. The song is in simple verse form. Next year it was recorded by Santana.

Released as a single in late 1969, it became the band's first top forty and top ten hit in the U.S., peaking at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Gregg Rolie performs the lead vocals and plays a Hammond organ solo in the middle section. The double-time coda includes a guitar solo performed by Carlos Santana. "Evil Ways" is about a girl who is spiteful. "You've got to change your evil ways, baby/Before I stop lovin' you." She tries to make her boyfriend jealous by associating with her friends. "You hangin' 'round, baby/With Jean and Joan and-a who-knows-who."
