Seals & Crofts – Cotton Mouth lyrics

(lyrics by James Seals; music by James Seals & Dash Crofts, 1971)
From the albums down home (1970) and seals and crofts I and ii (1974).
Covered by the Doobie Brothers on 1972's Toulouse Streetlp.

Red eyed mama keeps cryin'. Blue-eyed cat keeps a-lyin'.
Catfish keeps his eye on the string. Cotton mouth keeps on windin'.
Sing, sing, sing.
Dark moon keep on hidin'. 'Gator he keeps on slidin'.
Bullfrog he ain't mindin'. Cotton mouth keeps on windin'.
Sing, sing, sing.
Lightnin' bugs in bottles, give me all the light I need.
Seein' bait for linin'. Cotton mouth keep on windin'.
Sing, sing, sing.
Big iron pot's a-boilin'. Red-eyed mama's a-toilin'.
Crawdad meat's for dinin'. Cotton mouth keep on windin. '
Sing, sing, sing.
