Gri-Gri (for Marie Laveau)
Age Group: Adult
GRIS-GRIS (for Marie Laveau)
(c) 2002 M. Pearson
Well, I've been walkin'
Walkin' down that sad road
Hey I been roamin'
Rolling down that same dirt road
Ore yeye Mam'zelle Marie
Ore yeye O
Ore yeye Mam'zelle Marie
Ore yey' gris-gris
And the banshees howl
And the night dogs wail
The loup garou, the full of moon, death rattle
Shake for me
Take some John Root
Boil it in your cauldron
Then you get some Beth Root
Stir it down for healing
Bring Her red flowers
To her tomb at midnight
Knock and draw three X's
With red brick in moonlight
Author's Notes: This is a song written by a group called Curse. ( I had just happened to find online about Marie Laveau and songs written about her!) ...this music group writes mostly Pagan songs..and I just thought, how cool! So, again in honor of Marie and also of this group, thank you to both , and may we all reoice !
