Track Name: Mary Lou
Late in the evening, they came to my door
They said that they found you washed up on shore
I fell to my knees, and called out to you
‘My God! Have I lost you?
My God! Have I lost you?
My God! My God!’

We buried you in Natchez, it rained all day
Once everyone had left, your father stayed
And as it came down, he beat his chest and howled
‘My God, did You lose her?
My God, did You lose her?
My God! My God!’

Mary Lou, Mary Lou,
Mary Lou, Mary Lou,
Mary Lou

I wake in the twilight, my half of the bed
The sheets have been soaked through with my sweat
I rouse with your name on my breath
‘My God! Have I lost you?
My God! Have I lost you?
My God! My God!'
Track Name: Hold the Head Down
Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

I saw my baby (Oh Lord) with another man (Oh Lord)
I felt the fire (Oh Lord) within my hand (Oh Lord)
I told my baby (Oh Lord) before the dawn (Oh Lord0
‘Girl, you won’t see me (Oh Lord) after the storm’

I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned

They found her body (Oh Lord) rolled in the tide (Oh Lord)
Someone had seen me (Oh Lord) there by her side (Oh Lord)
They took my freedom (Oh Lord) now I’m in chains (Oh Lord)
Now I won’t see freedom (Oh Lord) ever again

I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned

Now I’m in Angola (Oh Lord) fire all around (Oh Lord)
There ain’t no water (Oh Lord) to cool me down (Oh Lord)
I miss my baby (Oh Lord) but still the same (Oh Lord)
If I saw my baby (Oh Lord) I’d kill her again

I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head down)
I killed her (Hold the head)
And that poor lady drowned
Track Name: Vermilion Bay
My baby took me down to Vermilion Bay
He held me in his arms, I never felt so safe

My baby took us out, out upon the waves
I close my eyes and smile, as I feel the spray

And at that point I’d never felt so free
Jesus could’ve come and taken me

And that’s when
His hands are on me
Breath taken from me
The surface fading

At the bottom, I see spirits next to me
In the darkness, I will follow where they lead
Never looking back

The struggle’s over
His arms are open
I simply let go

My baby took me down to Vermilion Bay
Track Name: Rite #4 (The Meal)
Lâche pas la patate
Laissez les bons temps rouler

Lâche pas la patate
Laissez les bons temps rouler

Lâche pas la patate
Laissez les bons temps rouler

Lâche pas la patate
Laissez les bons temps rouler
