Roger Mcguinn – Lover Of The Bayou lyrics

Catfish pie in gris gris bag
I'm the lover of the bayou
Mark your doorstep with a half wet rag
I'm the lover of the bayou
Raised and swam with the crocodile
Snake-eye taught me the Mojo style
Sucked n' weaned on chicken bile
I'm the lover of the bayou

I learned the key to the master lock
I learned to float in the water clock
Learned to capture the lightning shock
I'm the lover of the bayou
And I got cat's eye, teeth and hair for sale
I'm the lover of the bayou
Baron Samedi is on your tail
I'm the lover of the bayou

I cooked the bat in the gumbo pan
Drank the blood from a rusty can
Turned me into the Honga man
I'm the lover of the bayou
