Check this out. Evidently the back story to Toby Keith's 2008 tune 'Creole Woman' is Toby always wanted to write a tune about a 'voodoo witch woman'. With the help of Bobby Pinson, the songwriter who lended creative support to the entire album (That Don't Make Me A Bad Guy), they solidified a concept.
They decided to make the Creole woman's cry the centerpiece of the song. The antagonist is an outlaw who is wandering Louisiana and decides to have a romp with this witchy woman while passing through town. Turns out it might have been more than he bargained for...
I stopped in Thibodeaux, Roadhouse in Louisian
I wasn't stayin' long, I was a wanted man
The aire was thick with danger, I watched the vixens dance
My six gun in my pocket, my pistol in my pants
I let her walk up on me, she pinned me to the door
She said she swore she knew me, we'd never met before
She pressed up hard against me, I stared into her eyes
She grabbed my face and kissed me, she had me hypnotized
I'm runnin' down the road, can't find the interstate
It's like I'm being followed and I can't get away
The snakes and alligators, they whisper in the wind
I hear her calling to me, I turn around again
Cry of a Creole woman
Woke up the devil down in me
She took me to her bedroom, smelled like a cheap hotel
Never had a Cajun queen, I'm used to Southern belles
But through the smoky billows of my tobacco leaves
I watched her in the mirror as she was lovin' me
What's this you wicked woman, some kind of voodoo game?
Hell I haven't slept since Thursday, don't even know your name
This spell you got me under, got just one remedy
Just like a poison potion, that goes down smooth and sweet
