about

This is the second track for the remake of my 2002 album "Sculptures"

lyrics

I went walkin'
By the blue bayou
And I saw the sun go down.
I thought about old Greeley
And I thought about Lou
And I saw the sun go down.

White man
Makes me work all day
And I work too hard
For too little pay---
Then a white man
Takes my woman away.

I'll kill old Greeley.

The blue bayou
Turns red as fire.
Put the black man
On a rope
And pull him higher!

I saw the sun go down.

Put him on a rope
And pull him higher!

The blue bayou's
A pool of fire.
And I saw the sun go down,
Down,
Down,
Lawd I saw the sun go down!
(Lyrics by Langston Hughes)
