Voodoo woman
Covered by Susan Tedeschi, originally done by Koko Taylor

Ohh they call me the voodoo woman
And I know the reason why
Ohh they call me the voodoo woman
Ohh and I know-o the reason why
Ohh, if I raise up my hands now
Don't you know the sky begins to cry, darlin' ohh now!

Ohh they call me the voodoo woman
Cause I look through water and I spot dry land
Ohh they call me the voodoo woman
I look through water and I spot dry land
And I'm gonna tell all you men out there
If your woman's got another man
Honey you better hope she doesn't!

Cause, gotta rabbit foot in my pocket
A toad frog in my shoes, a crawdaddy on my shoulder
Looking dead at you
I got dust from a rattlesnake
And a black spider bone
If that don't do it baby
You better leave this girl alone

They call me the voodoo woman
And I know the reason why
Lord if I raise my hand
Ohh I know the sky gonna come down with rain!
Lord you better hope not, come on now!
(Solo-break)

Ohh honey, I gotta rabbit foot in my pocket
A toad frog in my shoes, crawdaddy on my shoulder
Looking dead at you
I got dust from a rattlesnake
And a black spider bone
If that don't do it baby
You better leave this girl alone

They call me the voodoo woman
Oh I know the reason why
Oh if I raise up my hand
Oh I think somebody, somebody better look out
'cause I don't think they understand!
(Solo-break)
They call me the voodoo woman
Cause I look through water and I spot dry land
Ohh they call me the voodoo woman
I look through water and I spot dry land
And I'm gonna tell all you men out there
If your woman's got another man
You better hope she doesn't honey!

Lord, ohh they call me the voodoo woman
And I know the reason why-ee
Ohh they call me the voodoo woman
And I know the reason why
Ohh, if I raise up my hands now
Don't you know the sky begins to cry
