Now, an I wonder what the matter wit' times?
A-seem like ev'rything have changed
It seem like this woman that I've been lovin', now
Have found some other man

I hold up my hand, now
I'm just tryin' to get my baby to understand, now
See, my baby don't love me no mo'
All because somebody have hoodooed the hoodoo, man

One night, I'm goin' down in Lou'siana
An buy me another mojo hand
Well, because I've got to break up my baby
From lovin' this other man

Now, I hold up my hands
I'm just tryin' to make my baby, understand
Oh, my baby don't love me no mo'
She says, 'Somebody have hoodooed the hoodoo, man'

'Well alright, John! '

(harmonica & instrumental)

'Yeah, now a little feelin'

I used to have a way with women
Make plenty money an ev'rything
But my woman don't love me no mo'
She said, 'Somebody hoodooed the hoodoo man'

Now, I just hold up my hands
I'm just tryin' to get my baby, understand
Well, my baby don't love me no mo'
Well, she said, 'Somebody hoodooed the hoodoo man'

Well now, goodbye baby
Someday, I'll see you soon
I've got somethin' to tell you, baby
Somebody else can have your room

And I hold up my hands
I'm just tryin' to gettin' my baby to understand
Well, my baby don't love me no mo'
She says, 'Somebody hoodooed the hoodoo man'.
