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 .

A. Craig

@Peris Brodsky Dave Ranson, excellent bass player and nice guy.

The drummer’s name is Brian Brignac. He’s a super cool guy and a total badass on the kit!

Derek's first solo might be one of the best I've heard, and Sonny - being the consumate musician - gives him the perfect launchpad. And then what Sonny plays leading into the rideout... wow

I love them both and yes I know they’re different styles different players but, if this was a competition Derek trucks just kicked ass with no mercy. My humble opinion.

Peris Brodsky

@good 'un Ranson, 'tis.

Sonny's is the best roaring and growling guitar you'll ever hear, Derek's is the best screaming and wailing. what more could a bluesy-rock slide guitar-lover ever ask for?

...nothing

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
