Marie Laveau
recorded by Bobby Bare 
written by Shel Silverstein and Baxtor Taylor

 
G
Down in Louisiana where the black trees grow
 
Lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau
     C
Got a black cat's tooth and a Mojo bone
    G
And anyone who wouldn't leave her alone
         C      D7                G
She'd go (growl) another man done gone
 
 
She lives in a swamp in a hollow log
 
With a one-eyed snake and a three-legged dog
            C
She's got a bent bony body and stringy hair
       G
If she ever seen y'all messing around there
         C      D7                G
She'd go (growl) another man done gone
 
    C
And then one night when the moon was black
G
Into the swamp come handsome Jack
  A7
A no good man like you all know
D7
He was looking around for Marie Laveau
 
   G
He said Marie Laveau you lovely witch
 
Gimme a little a little charm that'll make me rich
        C                                        G
Gimme a million dollars and I tell you what I'll do
 
This very night I'm gonna marry you
              C      D7                G
Then it'll be (growl) another man done gone
 
   C
So Marie done some magic and she shook a little sand
G
Made a million dollars and she put it in his hand
         A7
Then she giggled and she wiggled and she said hey hey
D7
I'm getting ready for my wedding day
 
    G
But old handsome Jack he said goodbye Marie
 
You're too damned ugly for a rich man like me
     C                                        G
Then Marie started mumbling her fangs started gnashing
 
Her body started trembling and her eyes started flashing
             C      D7                G
And she went (growl) another man done gone
 
   C
So if you ever git down where the black trees grow
   G
And meet a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau
   C
If she ever asks you to make her your wife
        G
Man you better stay with her for the rest of your life
            C      D7                G
Or it'll be (growl) another man done gone
