Jupiter mules kickin' out all the stops
Newfangled dogs danglin' stars from her eyelids
She can't read between the lies anymore
Lord, help her rise just one more time if you can.
Still, the children read to her
Till she opens up her hands
When my body dies will you remember my name?
When my body dies will you remember my name?
Oh, Mrs. Dubose you were such a flower
Now you're all dead inside withered and insane
Oh, Mrs. Dubose you were such a flower, you got the death,
The dust, and the opium runnin' through your veins
Black maid stays cause she's paid to be around
Condemned and scared for all she knows
You better look at the road when you pass
She gonna fix you with that evil eye
Unless your hotdin' your old man's hand
You better pass on by better pass on by
