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 rising flood
But then a lady came and rescued me
Down on St. John Bayou

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

We made love by the burnin flame
Midnight struck and I could feel the change, baby
Well I lost my arms, turned into a snake
The girl’s eyes turned red, red, red and she began to shake
She did a wild snake dance with me
Down on St. John Bayou
