I Walk On Guilded Splinters
Dr. John Lyrics


Some people think they jive me
But I know they must be crazy
Don't see dey misfortune
Guess they just too lazy

J'suis the Grand Zombie
My yellow belt of choison
Ain't afraid of no tom cat
Fill my brains with poison

Walk thru the fire
Fly thru the smoke
See my enemy
At the end of dey rope

Walk on pins and needles
See what they can do
Walk on gilded splinters
With the king of the Zulu

Kon kon, the kiddy kon kon
Walk on gilded splinters
Kon kon, the kiddy kon kon
Walk on gilded splinters

'Ti Alberta ('ti Alberta)
'Ti Alberta ('ti Alberta)
'Ti Alberta ('ti Alberta)
'Ti Alberta ('ti Alberta)

Roll outta my coffin
Drink poison in my chalice
Pride begins to fade
And y'all feel my malice

Put gris gris on your doorstep
Soon you'll be in the gutter
I can melt your heart like butter
A-a-and I can make you stutter

Kon kon, the kiddy kon kon
Walk on gilded splinters
Kon kon, the kiddy kon kon
Walk on gilded splinters

'Ti Alberta ('ti Alberta)
'Ti Alberta ('ti Alberta)
'Ti Alberta ('ti Alberta)
'Ti Alberta ('ti Alberta)

R.I.P. Night Tripper. I had the absolute privilege of seeing Dr John at Glastonbury Festival in 1984. I owned the Gris Gris album and I'd watched him on The Last Waltz film ripping up "Such a Night", so I knew I liked his music. I waited for his set with anticipation. What happened when he and his band came on will stay with me for the rest of my life. It was all low-key and subtle as hell, but as they played the sky seemed to close down to form a ceiling, the darkening landscape rushed in to meet it and we were all of us in a smokey New Orleans nightclub on a roasting summer night. Never before or since have I witnessed musicians creating such an atmosphere with their pure artistry. Unforgettable.
