stephie went down

to the swamp to wash her clothes,

gator got stephie

and started in to roll.

anybody knows stephie

knows she’s rolled a time or two,

stephie tell the gator

she bound to leave him blue.

washin in the swamp

dancin in the street,

stephie is the kind of girl

it ain’t so hard to meet.

gator fell in love

and bought a big ole house in town,

but stephie couldn’t care,

and stephie put him down.

stephie went back

to the swamp to fetch her clothes,

who she met or what she done

ain’t nobody knows.

    Love the tale and how you tell it! I alsolike how the verses keep up with the spirit of the story. Thank you for sharing it!

  11. Your work is so lyrical. This possesses a fabulous rhythm and needs arranging as a 12 bar blues. Love it!

    … in total awe of everything you write. I simply cannot believe how it pours from some magic place deep inside you.
