Jupiter mules oh, the kickin' out all the stops
Newfangled dogs danglin' stars from her eyelids
She can't read between the lies anymore
Lord, help her rise just one more time if you can

So still the children read to her till she opens up her hands
When my body dies will you remember my name?
When my body dies will you remember my name?

Oh, Mrs. Dubose you were such a flower
There you're all dead inside, so withered and insane
Oh, Mrs. Dubose you were such a flower
You got the death, the dust and the opium runnin' through
Runnin' through, run through your veins

So black maid stays 'cause she's paid to be around
Condemned and scared for all she knows
So you better look at the road when you pass
She gonna fix you with that evil eye

Unless you're holdin' your old man's hand
You better pass on by, you better pass on by
When my body dies will you remember my name?
Lord, when my body dies will you remember my name?

Oh, Mrs. Dubose you were such a flower
There you're all dead inside, so withered and insane
So, oh, Mrs. Dubose, yeah, you were such a flower
You got the death, the dust and the opium runnin' through
Runnin' through your veins
