lyrics

Not in Nashville, not in Little Rock but deep in New Orleans
All across the quarters there are sights to be seen
But one that goes unnoticed a curious curio
Are the eyes on every corner that follow as you go

Guardians of lonely hearts and children in the quarters
They’re never in the same place twice and not much for taking orders
But always know the witch queen left something good behind
Marie Laveau will let you know ‘this city is still mine!’
Guardians left by Dear Old Queen Marie

You’ll see them on the churches quiet in sunlight
And you’ll see them on the lampposts staring down in the night
Some of them you see and some of them you don’t
But all of them have are on the loose even if you never know

Guardians of lonely hearts and children in the quarters
They’re never in the same place twice and not much for taking orders
But always know the witch queen left something good behind
Marie Laveau will let you know ‘this city is still mine!’
Guardians left by Dear Old Queen Marie

Wings of stone
A word is carved
In tongues unknown
Except by one heart

Eyes of red
Honor her name
May her legend
Ever reign

Not in Nashville, not in Little Rock but deep in New Orleans
All across the quarters there are sights to be seen
But one that goes unnoticed a curious curio
Are the eyes on every corner the gargoyles always know

Guardians of lonely hearts and children in the quarters
They’re never in the same place twice and not much for taking orders
But always know the witch queen left something good behind
Marie Laveau will let you know ‘this city is still mine!’
Guardians left by Dear Old Queen Marie
