INTRO (TALK):
The most famous of the voodoo queens that ever existed
Is Marie Laveau, down in Louisana
There's a lot of weird, ungodly tales about Marie,
She's supposed to have a lot of magic potions, spells and curses....
 A
Down in Louisiana, where the black trees grow
Lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau
    D
She Got a black cat's tooth and a Mojo bone
     A
And anyone who wouldn't leave her alone
         E                        A
She'd go (growl) another man done gone.
A
She lives in a swamp in a hollow log
With a one-eyed snake and a three-legged dog
            D
She's got a bent, bony body and stringy hair 
A
If she ever seen y'all messin' 'round there
        E                         A
She'd go (growl) another man done gone.
D
And then one night when the moon was black
A
Into the swamp come handsome Jack
  B
A no good man like you all know
E
And He was lookin' around for Marie Laveau.
        A
He said Marie Laveau, you lovely witch
Gimme a little a little charm that'll make me rich
D
Gimme a million dollars and I tell you what I'll do
A
This very night, I'm gonna marry you
E                                      A
Then It'll be (growl) another man done gone.
   D    
So Marie done some magic, and she shook a little sand
A
Made a million dollars and she put it in his hand
B
Then she giggled and she wiggled, and she said Hey, Hey
E
I'm gettin' ready for my weddin' day.
        A
But old handsome Jack he said goodbye Marie
You're too damned ugly for a rich man like me
     D
Then Marie started mumblin', her fangs started gnashin'
    A
Her body started tremblin', and her eyes started flashin'
E                                     A
And she went (growl) another man done gone.
A
So if you ever git down where the black trees grow
And meet a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau
D
If she ever asks you to make her your wife
         A
Man, you better stay with her for the rest of your life
   E                                 A
Or it'll be (growl) another man done gone.
