Bayou Baby

bayou baby

She comes from the swamplands
Back in the mangrove
Back where the stories say
Magic runs wild
The devil plays host
And all who visit must stay

Witches and Zombies
Together by night
Gators and Snakes there as well
The river, it changes
Cut you off in a flash
And then you end up in hell

Hair as black as Kentucky Coal
And eyes green as the sea
She’s the witch queen of the swamp to most
But, she’s a Bayou Baby to me
Born out of the magic’s world
Where the mystic world runs free
She’s the witch queen of the swamp to most
But, she’s a Bayou Baby to me

She comes to town
to get supplies
That’s where I saw her first
I followed close
Back to the swamp
And saw her do her worst

A simple boat
A single lamp
An oarsmen, long, long dead
A different route
Through water black
To a place where most folks dread

Hair as black as Kentucky Coal
And eyes green as the sea
She’s the witch queen of the swamp to most
But, she’s a Bayou Baby to me
Born out of the magic’s world
Where the mystic world runs free
She’s the witch queen of the swamp to most
But, she’s a Bayou Baby to me

She saw me
And I looked back
She knew that I would follow
She slowed down
Her travel home
And she trapped me in the hollow

I never told
Another soul
Of who I go to see
I travel out
At night alone
My Bayou Baby waits for me

Hair as black as Kentucky Coal
And eyes green as the sea
She’s the witch queen of the swamp to most
But, she’s a Bayou Baby to me
Born out of the magic’s world
Where the mystic world runs free
She’s the witch queen of the swamp to most
But, she’s a Bayou Baby to me
