darkriver Lyr Req: Madame Sosthene / Sosthène / Sothene (10) 'Madame Sosthene' [or Sothene] 06 Dec 99

I'm stumped on this one. Michael Doucet plays and sings a song he titles "Madame Sosthene." I think one or two of the truly old farts (Dewey Balfa comes to mind) also sings it, although they apparently drop the second "s".

Anyway, I can't find the lyrics anywhere. Does anyone have a source they can point me to--a specific book you know would have this song in it. I just can't hear the lyrics with Doucet's singing (I'm hard of hearing which doesn't help at all.)

It's a pretty waltz. Anyone know it?
