Jimi Hendrix – Voodoo Child (Slight Return) lyrics

Well, I stand up next to A mountain
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Yeah
Well, I stand up next to A mountain
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I pick up all the pieces and make an island
Might even raise A little sand
Yeah

Cause I'm A voodoo child
Lord knows I'm A voodoo child baby

You better listen when I say

I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to ya one of these days
Hahaha

I said I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back one of these days
Oh yeah

If I don't meet you no more in this world then uh
I'll meet ya on the next one
And don't be late
Don't be late

Cause I'm A voodoo child voodoo child
Lord knows I'm A voodoo child
Hey hey hey

I'm A voodoo child baby

I don't take no for an answer

Question no
Yeah

    Apart from the mountain representing something like a big obstacle, I see Jimi the child (as in "Gypsy Eyes" or "Angel") on a beach with his little sand mountain which he chops with his hand and then makes something else.
    As well as the big imagery of the mountain, there's the small; might even raise a little sand which also brings up the question of are we, as souls, actually doing anything at all or merely observing what appears to be happening.
