I Walk On Gilded Splinters

Lyrics: Doctor John
Music: Doctor John

Played by Papa Mali with 7 Walkers.

Some people try to jive me, you know
I know they must be crazy
Can't see their misfortune
Think they're just too lazy

Fly through the fire
Jump through the smoke
See my enemy at the end of the rope

I walk on pins and needles
See what they can do
I walk on gilded splinters
With the king of the zulus
Singing kon kon, the kiddy kon kon
Walk on gilded splinters

Til I murder
Til I murder
Come to the soiree on the bayou
Way down in Louisiana where the [?]

Pulled out my coffin
Put poison in my chalice
Crossed my hand, feel my malice

I put gris-gris on your doorstep
Soon we'll be in the gutter
You know I can melt your heart like butter
I can make you stutter

Walk through the fire
Fly through the smoke
See my enemy at the end of the rope

I walk on pins and needles
See what they can do
I walk on gilded splinters
With the king of the zulus
Singing kon kon, the kiddy kon kon
Walk on gilded splinters

Til I murder
Til I murder
Come to the soiree on the bayou
Way down in Louisiana where the [?]

Pulled out my coffin
Put poison in my chalice
Crossed my hand, feel my malice
