Song The Gumbo Man – Stan Ridgway

On the rocks down below
A side window rolls down
On an El Dorado

Hear the hush of the voices
There’s a flash from inside
And nobody bothers to conceal
What they cannot hide

Chorus:
So if you see the gumbo man
Tell him now he’s gotta change his plan
Stir it left and stir it right
Eat it up until it’s gone from sight

From the top of a lighthouse
A beacon shone out
I draw a map to remember
What nobody found out

I woke up in the morning
Stared in the glass
I took a walk down the street
And saw you comin’ past

Chorus repeat x2

There’s a worry on the burner
A cold wind rushin’ in
And nobody did get out
But somebody did get in

I hear a creak on the stairway
Outside the door
Blue metal voices
Are beggin’ for more

Chorus repeat x2
