Alligator Pie

Album: Big Whiskey And The Groogrux King (2009)
  • Floating in the lower nine
    Waiting for a boat to throw me a line
    See my Stella smile
    Sitting on the roof eating alligator pie
    First day the water rise
    Second day the sun is high
    Third day Stella cried cause night times dark as a dead man's eye's

    Tell me when help is gonna come
    Stella said daddy when you gonna put me in a song?

    Morning ride on by thank lord everybody's alright
    Don't mean to throw us a second line
    The devil broke the levy and left us here to die

    Stella said daddy when you gonna put me in a song?

    All the things we know and
    Everything we hoped for
    All the things we wanted
    Everything that was sure
    Now there is a scar
    Where the old men used to be
    The corner store and market
    Where Stella used to sing to me

    Grace is all I'm asking
    When will grace return
    Grace is all I'm asking

    Remember how I feel in those days of the summertime
    Then Stella smiled, she said
    Stella said daddy when you gonna put me in a song?

    Tell me lord when help is gonna come
    Daddy when you gonna put me in a song?
