MARIE LEVEAU (Shel Silverstein / Baxter Taylor) Doctor Hook And The Medicine Show - 1971 Bobby Bare - 1973 The most famous of all the Voodoo Queens that ever existed is Marie Leveau down in Louisiana. A lot of weird ungodly tales about Marie. She s'posed to have a lot of magic potions and spells and curses....... Down in Louisiana where the black trees grow lives a voodoo lady named Marie Leveau She got a black cat tooth and a mojo bone and anyone who wouldn't leave her alone She go (Eeeeeeeeeaaagh), another man done gone She lives in a swamp in a hollow log with a one eyed snake and a three-legged dog She got a bent bony body and stringy hair And if she ever seen y'all messin' round there She go (Eeeeeeeeeaaagh), another man done gone And then one night when the moon was black Into the swamp come Handsome Jack A no good man like you all know When he was lookin' around for Marie Leveau He said, "Marie Leveau, you lovely witch A-gimme little charm that'll make me rich Gimme million dollars and I tell you what I'll do This very night I'm gonna marry you" And it'll be mmmm-mmmm, another man done gone So Marie done some magic and she shook a little sand Made a million dollars and she put it in his hand Then she giggled and she wiggled and she said, "Hey-Hey" I'm gettin' ready for my weddin' day But ol' Handsome Jack he said, "Goodbye Marie, You're too damn ugly for a rich man like me" Then Marie started numblin' her fangs started gnashin' Her body started tremblin' and her eyes started flashin' And she went (Eeeeeeeeeaaagh), another man done gone So if you ever get down where the black trees grow And meet a voodoo lady named Marie Leveau If she ever asks you to make her your wife Man, you better stay with her for the rest of your life Or it'll be (Eeeeeeeeeaaagh) ooo-eee, another man done gone Ah! Marie (Another man done gone) You pretty wife to be (Another man done gone) (Transcribed from the Bobby Bare recording by Mel Priddle - Jan 2011)
