Le mauvais homme

Performed by Adam Paulukaitis.
Recorded October 4, 2023 in Lilburn, Georgia.
Telephone recording. Sung in Missouri French.

This is how Kent's grandmother explained the song to him:
"A man was real mean. A man came to the door for food. The wife said her husband was gone. She let the man in. The mean man came home in good spirits, and they fixed the poor man supper and a bed. They lodged him for the night. The next morning when they got up, instead of the poor man they found a crucifix in the bed. Jesus had been the poor man."
