Congo Square
Sonny Landreth Lyrics


Congo Square
Sonny Landreth, Mel Melton, Dave Ranson

might be superstition but some kind of somethin'
Goin' on down there
It might be superstition but some kind of somethin'
Goin' on down there
It's an old time tradition when they play their
Drums at night in Congo Square

you can hear 'em in the distance
And the old folks up the bayou say a prayer
You can hear 'em in the distance
And the old folks up the bayou say a prayer
That's when the voodoo people gather
And they play their drums at night in Congo Square
... voodoo people

my eyes were not believin'
What I seen there but I could not turn away
My eyes were not believin'
What I seen there but I could not turn away
They had that mojo in motion
And I seen 'em dance in trance with that snake
... snake dance

it might be superstition
But when I hear 'em in the night I say a prayer
Yeah it might be superstition
But when I hear 'em in the night I say a prayer
Because I respects tradition
Like the kind they carry on in Congo Square
... Congo Square

Two humble and extremely talented guitarists complimenting each other and no duelling or egos and let’s have a thumbs up for the drummer .

This is incredible. I have not left the house in 24 days. The virus is horrible. This music makes it way better. Seattle checking in

For the uninitiated, notice their amps, not Marshall stacks, simple small vintage studio size, doesn't need to be loud to be good. Derek uses no effects, only him, the guitar, a wire and an amp, Sonny, well, what can you say, good is good. Except for a thumb pick, both of them finger pick.

God given talent

Debbie Cox

Brilliant track. Kudos to the drummer and bass player.

@revrudy This is one of the coolest guitar-duo videos on YouTube. I've seen both of these guys live, and I agree completely: Nobody better than Landreth and Trucks.

There are other good slide players, some with very different vibes. But there is no one better than these two, and their chemistry was palpable and magical.
