about

Andrew first wrote “Wigwam Woman” in 1983, overlaying lines of absurdist poetry from his notebook to a catchy funk riff. Rick brought his creative production techniques to their original 1984 4-track cassette recording, which inspired the remade 2010 version recorded digitally in Logic Pro, which Rick also engineered and mixed. Pitch-shifted guitars and vocals add to the track’s unique sound.

lyrics

Lyrics:

She black face, she back in the kitchen
Break down the door, no one around
Knock at the window, don’t make a difference
She drop dead, she don’t make a sound

She am a wigwam woman
She going crazy, fall out of the bed
Down in the basement playing with matches
She’s in the dark with a needle and thread

She like to go out shopping
She like to peel her skin
She gonna break down sobbing
She look so frail and thin

She got a mouth on fire moving at half speed
She am a wigwam woman and she know what I need
She got a nightmare vision sleeping in her throat
She got her heart in a pocket of her dead animal coat

She take a bath in the morning
Feel like a fish in the sea
She comin’ up from underwater
She making faces at me

She am a wigwam woman
She going crazy, fall out of the bed
Down in the basement playing with matches
She’s in the dark with a needle and thread
--
Lyrics ©1983 Andrew L. Jackson
