I was listening to a lot of TONY JOE WHITE and was inspired to write this lyric! It's rough and needs help!

SWAMP FEVER
© 2017 Mackie Humphries

Down in the Bayou
Where the Gators live
Ole Voodoo Mama says
You got a brand new still
Been pumpin’ our water
Into your corn mash
Heatin’ new copper
Tradin' brew for cash.

Me and friends want part of the take
Or we’ll become your worst headache
We’ll put Swamp Fever in your fruit jars
And you’ll be outlawed from every bar.

Swamp fever is a killin’ thing
Will cause your ears to ring-a-ling
It'll drag you down to your knees
Make snakes crawl at your feet
Swamp fever……..Swamp fever…….

All I could do was make a pact
I’d be agreein’ to give up half
To keep Swamp Fever outta my jars
Tonight we haul another load by car.

Swamp fever is a killin’ thing
Will cause your ears to ring-a-ling
It'll drag you down to your knees
Make snakes crawl at your feet
Swamp fever……..Swamp fever…….

Swamp fever is a killin’ thing
It’ll make your ears ring-a-ling
Swamp fever……..Swamp fever……
Voodoo Mama watches smilin’.

Lane-

Appreciate you checking this Bayou Lyric--

Through the years, I penned quite a few Cajun and Swamp lyrics.

Most of mine are mp3's, but ocassionaly I do just a lyric.

Thanks for the visit!

I remember some of the of the music, but I have to admit not looking at the credits--I have some old records, that I occasionally dust off--I always thought Jerry Reed and Tony Joe White were naturals, with that swamp groove! I'm sure there are many more, I've forgotten or never heard!

I don't understand it all but it's very colourful, Mackie.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

I like it.
I assume the first stanza is an intro...could be spoken in a southern drawl.

Neil--

Thanks for your positive take.. I don't know if they have Swamps in Canada--They probably have White Lighting, though!
