Lyrics

Way down south where the swamp lands grow I was messing where nobody goes Fishing for my dinner in a crawdady bed I fell in gator broke my neck When down from the bottom of the murky depths A girl stood up and stole my breath She said, “Hey mon amie, got to come with me Don’t be alarmed but you’ve got something I need I’m happy to have met you my name is Jess I think its time we left” Tell my family tell my kin, I won’t be coming home again. The grim reaper’s name is Jess, she’s been fair and I feel quite blessed Eyes like fire and skin like ice Sweet water turned her hair white Guiding our way to a secret whole To a place where she’d take my soul From the land of the living to the land of the dead When I heard this no tears where shed The worms conspire, the life I had now has expired. Bathed in fire, to live again is my desire Tell my family tell my kin, I won’t be coming home again. The grim reaper’s name is Jess, she’s been fair and I feel quite blessed Like a candle my flame is out I’m certain of this there is no doubt There’s just one thing that remains to known Will I float like a log or sink like a stone.

Won’t you run away with me We’ll try we’ll fly just drink this cup Just come away with me The air the space your smile they lift me up We’ll learn how to fly
