Way down south where the swamp lands grow
I was messing where nobody goes
fishing for my dinner in a crawdaddy bed
I fell in and I broke my neck
when down from from the bottom of the murky depths
a girl stood up and stole my breath
she said "Hey mon ami, gotta come with me
don't be alarmed but you got something I need
I'm happy to have met you, my name is Jess
I think it's time we left"

(Chorus)
Tell my family, tell my kin
I won't be coming home again
The grim reapers name is Jess
she's been fair and I feel quite blessed

Eyes like fire and skin like ice
Sweet water and head lights
guiding our way to a secret hole
to a place where she'd take my soul
from the land of the living
to the land of the dead
When I heard this no tears were shed

The worms conspire
the life I had now has expired
bathed in fire
to live again is my desire

(Chorus)
Tell my family, tell my kin
I won't be coming home again
The grim reapers name is Jess
she's been fair and I feel quite blessed

Like a candle my flame is out
certain of this
there is no doubt
There's just one thing that remains to be known
will I float like a log or sink like a stone? Whoa!

The worms conspire
the life I had now has expired
bathed in fire
to live again is my desire

(Chorus:)
Tell my family, tell my kin
I won't be coming home again
the grim reapers name is Jess
she's been fair and I feel quite blessed
