Lyrics c 2012 Eric Bibb, Bug Music
I love the way she calls my name
I love the way she talk
She's three parts wild, one part tame
I love the way she walk
Ma Bayou Belle
Since I saw her dancin' in the moonlight
Down by the wishing well
She's on my mind day an' night
I'm underneath her spell
She's fine as she can be
Built up solid off the ground
Hair down to her knees
Soft like eider down
I walked up to her, stars in my eyes
I said, Baby, how you want your rollin' done?
She looked straight into my heart
Whispered in my ear --
Roll me from sun to sun
Ma Bayou Belle
