about

"Ol' Jesse" is a song about a Louisiana drunkard in the depths of the damp swamps who's made a name for himself, but never any friends.

lyrics

Deep down in the swamps of Lou'siana
Where the Tupelo Gum trees lie
There's a man who been wrestlin' Alligata'
Since a young boy, age of five
He don't care much for social inte'action
Lived alone this long just fine
Snare trappin' and a bass fishin'
With a tow line

Wine and Moonshine
Drink from nine to five
Can't take off time
Clock waits for no one

People 'round town 'ould call 'em Ol' Jesse
No one knew his real name for sure
Smelled of wood smoke
A hint of gun powder
And he made a mean peach preserve
There's a legend he can reach down in the water
Pull up twenty Crawdads per turn
No one's seen it, but then no one's really that concerned

Wine and Moonshine
Drink from nine to five
Can't take off time
Clock waits for no one

Jingle Jangle those tin cans
There ain't no sheriff to spoil his plans for you

He's a quiet man
Don't intrude on his land
With deadly aim he'll pump you full of lead

"Where you runnin', boy? Truth be told, I love a good hunt."
