"Bayou Woman" as written by and Tony Joe White....
Across the river an owl was callin'
As he slowly made his rounds
A midnight dew was softly falling
On the ground, on the ground

She was standing by the campfire
I watched her move into the dance
And when she looked at me with those sexy eyes
They seemed to say, "Hey boy, d'ya wanna take a chance?"

Bayou woman you make me feel it
Dancing barefoot in the night
Moving softly in the shadows
In the pale moonlight

Behind the clouds, the moon was slipping
I felt her move into my arms
She said, "Are you into skinnin'?"
I said, "Anything baby, to keep warm"

Bayou woman you make me feel it
Runnin' barefoot in the night
Standing golden by the river
In the pale moonlight

Bayou woman you make me feel it
Dancin' barefoot in the night
Moving softly in the shadows
In the pale, pale moonlight
