Sites To See #406

The SOLE purpose of this series is to help call attention to sites that I think many would find most interesting—in one way or another.  Just to be clear, inclusion in this series is not necessarily meant as an endorsement, and I have included sites that I found rather disturbing.  The link below each image is to the site itself, and each image is linked to the particular post from which it was taken when applicable.  Please, go see for yourself.  Oh, and as of August 10, 2012, I will be no longer including sites that have auto-play and word verification engaged.

ATF: Bayou Babes

This weekly series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.



Polk Salad Annie
Tony Joe White
If some of ya'll never been down south too much
I'm gonna tell you a little bit about this
So that you'll understand
What I'm talkin' about
Down there we have a plant that grows
Out in the woods and in the fields
Looks somethin' like a turnip green
And everybody calls it
Polk salad
Polk
Salad
Used to know a girl lived down there
And she'd go out in the evenings
And pick her a mess of it
Carry it home
And cook it for supper
'Cause that’s about all they had to eat
But they did all right

Down in Louisiana
Where the alligators grow so mean
There lived a girl
That I swear to the world
Made the alligators look tame

Polk salad Annie
Polk salad Annie
Everybody said it was a shame
‘Cause her momma was a-workin'
On the chain gang
A mean vicious woman

Every day for supper time
She'd go down by the truck patch
And pick her a mess of polk salad
And carry it home in a tow sack

Polk salad Annie
The gators got your granny
Chomp
Chomp Chomp
Everybody says it was a shame
‘Cause her momma was a-workin'
On the chain gang
A wretched
Spiteful
Straight razor-totin' woman
Lord have mercy
Pick me a mess of it

Her daddy was lazy
And no count
Claimed he had a bad back
All her brothers were fit for
Was stealin' watermelons
Out of my truck patch

Polk salad Annie
The gators got your granny
Everybody said it was a shame
‘Cause her momma was a workin'
On the chain gang

Sock a little polk salad to me
You know I need me a mess of it

Got to have me
A ladle of it




Marie LaVeau
Bobby Bare
Down in Louisiana
Where the black trees grow
Lives a voodoo lady
Named Marie LeVeau
She got a black cat tooth
And a mojo bone
And anyone wouldn't
Leave her alone
She’d go
Greeeeeee
Another man done gone

She lives in a swamp
In a hollow log
With a one-eyed snake
And a three-legged dog
She got a bent bony body
And stringy hair
And if she ever seen you-all
Messin' ‘round there
She’d go
Greeeeeee
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
When he was lookin' around
For Marie LeVeau
He said
Marie LeVeau
You lovely 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
And it'll be
Ummmmmmm
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 hands
Then she giggled
And she wiggled
And she said
Hey hey
I'm gettin' ready
For my weddin' day
But ol' Handsome Jack
He said goodbye Marie
You're too damn ugly
For a rich man like me
Then Marie started numblin'
Her fangs started gnashin'
Her body started tremblin'
And her eyes started flashin'
And she went
Greeeeeee
Another man done gone

So if you ever get down
Where the black trees grow
And meet a voodoo lady
Named Marie LeVeau
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
Ooooo weee
Another man done gone

Addams or Munsters?


From time to time, we all face serious dilemmas during the courses of our lives, and one of the worst has been choosing between [The Addams Family] and [The Munsters] for many.  Which side are you on?



Alas, with both demanding total devotion, one cannot choose to fully enjoy both without having the pall of adultery hanging over their heads for the rest of their days. Ah, but Hollywood does have a very persuasive say in the matter.


P.S.
My mom would have been 88 today.

ATF: Wanton Wickedness

This weekly series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.

Black Magic Woman
Santana
Got a black magic woman
Got a black magic woman
I got a black magic woman
Got me so blind I can't see
That she's a black magic woman
She's tryin' to make a devil out of me

Don't turn your back on me baby
Don't turn your back on me baby
Yes don't turn your back on me baby
Stop messin' 'round with your tricks
Don't turn your back on me baby
You just might pick up my magic sticks

Got your spell on me baby
Got your spell on me baby
Yes you’ve got your spell on me baby
Turnin’ my heart into stone
I need you so bad
Magic woman
I can't leave you alone



Evil Woman
Electric Light Orchestra (ELO)
You made a fool of me
But them broken dreams
Have got to end

Hey woman
You got the blues
Yes you
 Ain't got no one
Else to use
There's an
Open road
That leads nowhere
So just
Make some miles
Between here and there
There's a hole in my head
Where the rain comes in
You took my body
And played to win
Ha ha woman
It's a cryin’ shame
But you
Ain't got nobody
Else to blame

Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman

Rolled in
From another town
Hit some
Gold too hot
To settle down
But a fool and his money
Soon go
Separate ways
And you found that fool
Lyin' in a daze
Ha ha woman
What you gonna do
You destroyed all the virtues
That the Lord gave you
It's so good
That you're feelin’ pain
Yes you better get your face on board
The very next train

Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
You’re an evil woman
Evil woman

Hey
Hey hey hey

Hey
Hey hey hey

Hey
Hey hey

Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
You’re an evil woman
Evil woman

Evil woman
How you done me wrong
But now you're tryin' to wail
A different song
Ha ha funny
How you broke me up
You made the wine
Now you drink the cup
I came runnin'
Every time you cried
Thought I saw love
Smilin' in your eyes
Ha ha honey
Very nice to know
That you
Ain't got no place
Left to go
Oh
Oh
Oh

Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
You’re an evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
You’re an evil woman
Evil woman
Such an evil woman
Evil woman
Alright

A Sunday Drive

Back during our childhood, our parents would often load up my brother and me after Sunday morning church services for a leisurely drive around where we lived.  Even though we were seeing mostly familiar sights, it was still good to see them again, and this is why “A Sunday Drive” sounded about right for the name of a series revisiting familiar sites that are well worth seeing again and again.  The link below the image is to the site itself, and the image is linked to the post it was first included in here.
