Album: That Don't Make Me a Bad Guy (2008)

  • I stopped in Thibodeaux, Roadhouse in Louisiana
    I wasn't stayin' long, I was a wanted man
    The air was thick with danger, I watched the vixens dance
    My six gun in my pocket, my pistol in my pants
    I let her walk up on me, she pinned me to the door
    She said she swore she knew me, we'd never met before
    She pressed up hard against me, I stared into her eyes
    She grabbed my face and kissed me, she had me hypnotized

    [Chorus:]
    I'm runnin' down the road, can't find the interstate
    It's like I'm being followed and I can't get away
    The snakes and alligators, they whisper in the wind
    I hear her calling to me, I turn around again
    Cry of a Creole woman
    Woke up the devil down in me

    She took me to her bedroom, smelled like a cheap hotel
    Never had a Cajun queen, I'm used to Southern belles
    But through the smoky billows of my tobacco leaves
    I watched her in the mirror as she was lovin' me

    [Chorus:]

    What's this you wicked woman, some kind of voodoo game?
    Hell I haven't slept since Thursday, don't even know your name
    This spell you got me under, got just one remedy
    Just like a poison potion, that goes down smooth and sweet

    [Chorus:] Writer/s: Bobby Pinson, Toby Keith
