Lyrics
Gypsy Queen Chuck Hughes Music ASCAP


Down in New Orleans in a shack by the water
My future found me in the shadows of the Quarter
Fell down an alley off of bourbon St.
I was goin' half crazy from the crowds and the heat
Could have been the spell of the hurricane
When a voice from the dark whispered my name
Slipped down a hallway to a dark back room
Heard a phantom in the dark sing a gypsy tune

Bon ton roule and a voulez vous
Life in the quarter could be strange and cruel
Bad luck to talk about the things I've seen
There's no one meaner than the gypsy queen

I laughed out loud when she spoke of luck
Reached in my pocket for my tweny bucks
I didn't recognize the letters she wrote
Round a five sided star and the head of a goat
She read my palm and she told me that
In my future was the name Lestat
Then she finished and I had to go
Next stop the grave of Marie Laveaux

Went to the graveyard just about midnight
I saw somethin flyin' in the pale moonlight
Next thing I was wakin' and I felt my neck
There were two little lumps that were kind of wet
Since that day I live for the night
I glide the alleys away from the light
There's only one way that I'll ever depart
It's when I leave with a stake in my heart
