Lyrics

ST JOHN BAYOU (by Scott Detweiler)

A hurricane in New Orleans
Blowin rain too hard to see
Well I lost my way deep in the mud
All around me was a risin flood
Then a lady came and rescued me
Down on St. John Bayou, yeah
St. John Bayou

Between the bayou and the railroad tracks
The girl lived alone in a one room shack
She did voodoo as the sun went down
Doin snake dances naked on the ground
Oh the girl did a wild snake dance for me
Down on St. John Bayou
St. John Bayou
St. John Bayou
St. John Bayou
(alright, Larry)

We made love by the burnin flame
Midnight struck I could feel the change, baby
Well I lost my arms, now, cause I turned into a snake
The girl's eyes turned red, red, red, red, red, baby
She began to shake
Oh, the girl did a wild snake dance for me, baby
She did a wild snake dance for me, Jesus
She did a wild snake dance for me
Down on St. John Bayou, yeah
St. John Bayou
St. John Bayou
St. John Bayou
