about

A tribute to the Mardi Gras Indians, a proud and beautiful tradition that was once nearly crushed by violence and politics.

lyrics

Spy boy run up front uptown
Call out to flag boy way down
Keep watch a spy come this way

Hold up I hear y’all drummin
Stand down my Big Chiefs Comin
And your suit is tattered and frayed

You can’t keep up with me
My suits prettier, see?

We’re not men in disguise
But we are the spirits of life
We dance sew color from grey

Bow down or bow out wild man
Turn back get a new game plan
This here is our street today

You can’t keep up with me
My suits prettiest, see?

Here I come, I come I come.
Here I come, I come I come.
Here I come, I come I come.

Spy boy runnin’ your way.
