Jenny Knows (An Awful Story)

from Delta Punk by The Fantastic Terrors

/

lyrics

Once upon a morning light / Way out by the river tide
Way out there was Jenny seen / Dancing like a voodoo queen

Jenny was a Dixie craze / She had seen no better days
She was young and she was pure / Both the sickness and the cure

She weren’t trying to impress / Dancing in her dripping dress
Dancing on the river tide /More to see and less to hide

Once upon a morning light / Way out by the river tide
Way out there was Jenny seen / Dancing like a voodoo queen

She was caught by jelly Pete / with his bowler and his gleet
He was struck but he was sly / Pete came with a vile eye

Go down Jenny, go go go, he came with a vile eye
Go down Jenny, go go go, Jenny knows!

Jenny spoke into his ear / whispering words the dead can hear
Told of tales of sinking land / That was mapped onto her hand

One could juke to Bordeaux ghost and then straight to Pepper Coast
And then back to Baton Rouge with a liar and a stooge

Go down Jenny, go go go, go straight back to Baton Rouge
Go down Jenny, go go go, Jenny knows!

When the river tide will fall, you might hear that voodoo call of the virgin queen that fell
for the trick she knew so well
