"Junebug" as written by and Mark Linkous....
A beautiful woman she rose
From the smokin' waters of the lake
With a candle that burned in each palm
My teeth each sank gently to the floor

Bring me some luck little junebug
You cousins they're gods to the seas
The march afternoons
The sun and the moon

Before I fall asleep
A white blood of wolves must be drained
And that sorry captain howdy
Scatters my bones for the lambs

Bring me some luck little junebug
You cousins they're gods to the seas
The march afternoons
The sun and the moon

    General CommentThis is such a pretty and melancholy song. I don't have any idea of what it means, but the first verse makes me think of the 'lady of the lake' in the King Arthur legend, and I think 'captain howdy' was the demon that possessed the girl in The Exorcist, no idea what the relevance is though.
