Seventh Son (Band Version) - Lyrics

People wonder about the one-ree-o-ree
They ask about the ee-ree-ann
What does it mean, nickory-john?
So, I'll explain it the best I can

Down in the Mississippi Delta swamp
Where a stranger don't dare to go
Well, there's a wild-eyed man that's the head of a clan
And there ain't nothin' that he don't know

He's got his mojo workin'
And so he knows what's a-happenin' next
With the one-ree-o-ree-ee-ree-ann
Well, it's a queery-quan Delta hex

And ev'rybody's talkin' 'bout the seventh son
Well, in the whole round world there is only one

And he's the one
He's the one
Well, he's the one, he's the one
The one they call the seventh son

Well, he can tell your future, it will come to pass
And do things for you, make your heart feel glad
Look in the sky, predict the rain
And tell when a woman's got another man

Well, he's the one
Yeah, he's the one
Well, he's the one, he's the one
The one they call the seventh son

Well, he can talk these words that will sound so sweet
Even make your little heart skip a beat
Heal the sick, uh-huh, and raise the dead
And even make the little girls talk out of their head

Well, he's the one
He's the one
Well, he's the one, he's the one
The one they call the seventh son
