Marie Laveau

Bobby Bare

Down in Lou´siana where the black trees grow

Lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveaux.

She got a black cat tooth and a mojo bone,

And anyone wouldn´t leave her alone.

She go GREEEEEEEEEEEE...

Another man done gone.

She live in a swamp in a hollow log

With a one-eyed snake and a three-legged dog.

She got a bent bony body and stringy hair,

And if she ever seen you messin´ round there,

She go GREEEEEEEEEEEE...

Another man done gone.

And then one night when the moon was black,

Into the swamp came Handsome Jack.

A no-good man like you all know,

And he was lookin´ around for Marie Laveaux .

He said, "Marie Laveau, you lovely witch,

Why don´t you gimme a little charm that´ll make me rich.

Gimme million dollars, and I´ll tell you what I´ll do...

This very night I´m gonna marry you."

It´ll be UMMMMMMMM...

Another man done gone.

So Marie did some magic and she shook a little sand,

Made a million dollars, and she put it in his hand.

Then she looked and she said , "Hey hey,

I´m gettin´ ready for my wedding day."

But ol´ Handsome Jack said "Good-bye Marie.

You too damn ugly for rich man like me."

So Marie started shakin´, her fangs started gnashin´,

Her body started shakin´, and her eyes started flashin´.

She went GREEEEEEEEEEEE...

Another man done gone.

So if you ever get down where the black tree grow

And meet a voodoo lady named Marie Laveaux,

And if she ever asks you to make her your wife,

Man, you better stay with her for the rest of your life

Or it´ll be GREEEEEEEEEEEE...

Another man done gone.
