Subject: Lyr Req: Papa Celestine's lyrics to Marie Laveaux

Friends,

Oscar "Papa" Celestine recorded a song, Marie Laveaux, in the 50s. It's a jazz ballad.

I'm trying to find the text or lyrics for this song. I have the recording but wish to try to find a printed version or any other references to Marie Laveaux (except the Bobby Bare lyrics).

Any help is immensely appreciated.

Best,

Frederick Park, Asheville, NC

For the sake of those who haven't heard this song, click here for a generous sample of the Papa Celestin recording.

I listened to the sound sample, and it seems to follow fairly closely to the version sung by Dr. John. We have a transcription of that version here.
