lyrics

They say she came from New Orleans
A dead flower in her hair
And the way she talked, it crept into your skin
She'd laugh without a care

She'd say "I aint' seen no witch doctor, but I've heard of all her tales.
The one about the moon, the time you were swooning
And the time that you were sure to fail."

Her words they struck me in the night
I couldn't get no rest
Was she alive in my dreams, was this some kind of test?

So I went down to the medicine man
He had nothing but bad news
"Sorry, son," he said to me, "You've got them wondering blues"
"If you stay, I could play you a song that might delight your ears"
"That's alright, I'll get on my way, I'm just counting down my years"

Now I'm old, tired to the bone
Time is just dragging along
Her words still entwined deep in my soul
And lay hidden behind this song

She'd say "I aint' seen no witch doctor, but I've heard of all her tales.
The one about the moon, the time you were swooning
And the time that you were sure to fail."
