(For fans of: Counting Crows, Wallflowers, Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler, Sonny Landreth, and Elvis Costello.)

Another flood descends on New Orleans, but a Mardi Gras spyboy arrives to save the day. In a New Orleans Mardi Gras parade, "The Spy Boy is first in the front: he is the baddest of all the Indians...he is ahead looking for trouble. Only a chosen few can be Spy Boy." (in the words of a famous parade leader)

This song is a little about Hurricane Katrina, and the Great Flood of 1927, and it imagines the Spyboy as someone who arrives to help shield the city from the worst of the rising waters. Be sure to stick around for the crazy synth break in the middle, and the slow-building lyrical tour de force that follows.

Oh, and if you like the song, you can download it right now for FREE, right here:

LYRICS
-----------

black horn blowin in the summer heat
they're trimmin' the lamps down on Frenchman street
some chariot is swingin' low tonight

polish your shoes / cut off your hair
don't you take too long sayin' your prayers
praise the lord / thank the devil for the second sight

oh but here come the spyboy / takin' his time
ain't no hurry to the end of the line
seven black horses in mother of pearl
turn the corner to the end of the world

out in the fields, in the sugarcane
there's too many good people prayin' for rain
so all you sinners help me drink this dry
levee is broke / i don't know where
but the old man is rolling through congo square
he come for you and then he's comin' for mine

oh but here come the spyboy / takin' his time
ain't no hurry to the end of the line
seven black horses in mother of pearl
turn the corner to the end of the world

oh but here come the spyboy / takin' his time
ain't no hurry to the end of the line
seven black horses in mother of pearl
turn the corner to the uh. One Two, I said

oh but here come the spyboy / takin' his time
callin' Cuba Libre with Bacardi & Lime
here come the spyboy / breakin' it down
just grab what you can carry better get out of town / all right

here come the spyboy / whaddya know?
he's comin for his people and he's lettin em go
here he come now coming over the hill
shotgun rider in yo mama's devillle

city of darkness / town of the damned
radio say we goin down with all hands
riverboat gambler / you better believe
dealin off the bottom / got your card up his sleeve

here come the water / yes it's thicker than blood
all the way from Memphis I been riding the flood
