Lyrics

The fortune queen of New Orleans Was brushing her cat In her black limousine On the backseat Were scratches from The marks of men Her fortune she had won Couldn't see through The tinted glass She said, home, James And he hit the gas Followed her To some darkened room She took my money, she said I'll be with you soon [CHORUS] Dark Lady laughed and danced And lit the candles one by one Danced to her gypsy music 'Til her brew was done Dark Lady played black magic 'Til the clock struck on the twelve She told me more about me Than I knew myself

She dealt two cards A queen and a three And mumbled some words That were so strange to me And then she turned up A two-eyed jack My eyes saw red But the card still stayed black She said the man you love Is secretly true To someone else Who is very close to you My advice is that You leave this place Never come back and forget You ever saw my face [repeat CHORUS] So I ran home And crawled in my bed I couldn't sleep because Of all the things she said Then I remembered Her strange perfume And how I smelled it Was in my own room So I sneaked back And caught her with my man Laughing and kissing 'Til they saw the gun in my hand The next thing I knew They were dead on the floor Dark Lady would never Turn a card up anymore [repeat CHORUS]
