Alligator Pie
Dave Matthews Band Lyrics


Floatin' in the lower nine
Waitin' for a boat to throw me a line
See my Stella smile
Sittin' on a roof eatin' alligator pie
First day the water rise
Second day the sun is high
Third day Stella cries
'Cause night time's dark as a dead man's eyes

Lord
Tell me when help is gonna come
Stella said Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?

Storm went right on by
Thanked the Lord everybody's alright
Don't mean to throw off a second line
But the Devil broke the levee and left us here to die

Stella said Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?

Like a dance hall to get y'all down
Like a dance hall to get y'all down
Like a dance hall to get y'all down

All the things we know and everything we hope for
All the things we wanted
Everything that was sure
Now there is a scar where the old men used to be
The corner store and market where Stella used to sing to me
Grace is all I'm asking
When will Grace return?
Grace is all I'm asking

Remember how it feels
Lazy days in the summertime
Then my Stella smiled
Stella said Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?

Tell me, Lord, when help is gonna come
She said Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?

Alligator Pie has aged really well since 2009. One of the more underrated Big Whiskey tunes.

Relentless

Originally hated this song. But I can’t deny it bumps

Mike Fantasia

Sure does. Whole album was really a front to back no miss

dpaslaski

This is kind of a slower New Orleans flavored Tripping Billies. Always been a fan of this one!

Dude

So good. Hope they bring it back next year 2020

MaryAnn

One of my faves! Haven't yet seen this one live, and agree with the previous comment... hope they bring it to the 2020 tour.

Woody Longshore

Davo, when you gonna put me in a song?

Mike

I like this song...that's why I never play it.
