OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
*Down in Louisiana where the black trees grow
Lives a voodoo woman named Marie Laveau

Left allemande the corner, partner box the gnat
4 ladies promenade around the track
Dosado then go left allemande, promenade
And she goes ooh! ooh!
Another man done gone


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*She lives in a swamp in a hollow log
With a one-eyed snake and a 3 legged dog


*Handsome Jack swindled voodoo Marie (then said)
"Get away from here, you're too ugly for me"


FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

4 ladies chain, turn 'em left you do
1 & 3 (2 & 4) do the right & left thru
Star thru, pass thru and you swing
Left allemande and then you weave the ring
Weave in and out around the ring you go

And she goes (scream)
Another man done gone

Marie Laveau
 
 

INTRO (TALK):
The most famous of the voodoo queens that ever existed
Is Marie Laveau, down in Louisiana
There's a lot of weird, ungodly tales about Marie,
She's supposed to have a lot of magic potions, spells and curses...

Down in Louisiana, where the black trees grow
Lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau
Got a black cat's tooth and a Mojo bone
And anyone who wouldn't leave her alone
She'd go (greee) another man done gone.

She lives in a swamp in a hollow log
With a one-eyed snake and a three-legged dog
She's got a bent, bony body and stringy hair
If she ever seen y'all messin' 'round there
She'd go (greee) 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
(TALK) He was lookin' around for Marie Laveau.

He said "Marie Laveau, you handsome witch
Gimme a little charm that'll make me rich
Gimme a million dollars and I tell you what I'll do
This very night, I'm gonna marry you"
Then it'll be (greee) 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 old handsome Jack he said "goodbye Marie
You're too damned ugly for a rich man like me"
Then Marie started mumblin', her fangs started gnashin'
Her body started tremblin', and her eyes started flashin'
And she went (greee) another man done gone.

So if you ever git down where the black trees grow
And meet a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau
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 (greee) another man done gone.

Lyrics by Shel Silverstein and Baxtor Taylor.
Recorded by Bobby Bare.
