“Come Get It, Get It, Come, Come / Walk on guilded splinters
Come Get It, Get It, Come, Come / Walk on guilded splinters”
Dr. John explained that the song “Walk On Guilded Splinters” was based on a traditional voodoo church song. He said, “It’s supposed to be ‘Splendors’, but I turned it into ‘Splinters’… I just thought splinters sounded better and I always pictured splinters when I sung it.”
The Doctor passed away on June 6, 2019 at the age of 77.
