Lover Of The Bayou

Album: Mudcrutch (2008)
  • Catfish pie in gris gris bag
    I'm the lover of the bayou
    Pack your doorstep with a half wet rag
    I'm the lover of the bayou
    I was raised and swam with the crocodile
    Snake-eye taught me the Mojo style
    Sucked and weaned on chicken bile
    I'm the lover of the bayou

    I learned the key to the master lock
    Learned to float in the water clock
    Learned to capture the lightning shock
    I'm the lover of the bayou
    And I got cat's an' teeth and hair for sale
    I'm the lover of the bayou
    And there are zombies on your tail
    I'm the lover of the bayou

    I cooked a bat in a gumbo pan
    I drank the blood from a rusty can
    Turned me into the Hunger Man
    I'm the lover of the bayou, yeah.
