"Worried Mind" as written by and Sr. Dowd/williams....
I woke up this morning
With a worried mind
My eyes were jerkin' round
In my head
The sky was bleeding
The sun was black
The lilies of the valley were obscene

Twelve screaming birds
From a foreign land
Have come to memorize me
My head cracked
The birds flew in
My sins have come home to roost
Jumbalaya, crawfish pie, filet gumbo
Jody ran off with Yvonne, my ma cher aimee-oh
Take a tall drink from a jar, act so gay-o
The war is over
Johnny's Back
Back on the bayou

I fell from my bed
Put on my jungle boots
To the lunatic mirror I did crawl
A pale-eyed stranger
Was staring at me
I could almost recognize him

Won't you please forgive me
All the harm I've done
I was bent on violence when I was young
Beauty comes from violence
Beauty's all I crave
But you can't get a robin from an eagle's egg

Jumbalaya, crawfish pie, filet gumbo
Jody ran off with Yvonne, my ma cher aimee-oh
I take a tall drink from a jar, act so gay-o
The war is over
Johnny's Back
Back on the bayou
