Mudcrutch - Song of the Day - Lover of the Bayou

Recommended Posts

Catfish pie

In gris gris bag

I'm the lover of the bayou

Pack your doorstep

With a half wet rag

I'm the lover of the bayou

I was raised and swam

With the crocodile

Snake-eye taught me

The Mojo style

Sucked and weaned

On chicken bile

I'm the lover of the bayou

I learned the key

To the master lock

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 an' teeth

And hair for sale

I'm the lover of the bayou

And there are zombies

On your tail

I'm the lover of the bayou

I cooked a bat

In a gumbo pan

I drank the blood

From a rusty can

Turned me

Into the Hunger Man

I'm the lover of the bayou

Yeah

Really, what's not to like about this song? Great cover and I love how they made it their own. Everyone has their moment with this song.

Benmont's playing really stands out for me. :heart:

This is actually a song I could see the Dirty Knobs performing. Guitars blazing away, oh yeah.

Lover of the Bayou and shady grove are MY two least favorites along that sepid June bug jam.

"swum with crocodiles" LOL, in Malibu?? Cmon Tom you are killing me.

I tend to skip them. I love about half the album which is par nowadays.

These three would be on the "don't love" side.

This street,crystal river ,scare easy, would be on the love side.

But that can always change I guess, sometimes I dont' like something and it grows on me.

lover of the bayou was written years ago by roger mcguinn of the byrds and acually released back then. so it may very well sound familiar to you 30 years later. roger was not from the bayou, he grew up in chicago, ended up going to NYC and then LA where the byrds made their mark. they played the troubadour just like tom and the other bands. naturally roger played those venues way before tom, around 1964-65, when tom was still dreaming.
