I’m gonna go down to the Hoodoo Man
Yah I gots a woman on my mind
I’m gonna go down to the Hoodoo Man
Yah I gots a woman on my mind
I gotta bury her shoe by the river
So she won’t tell no one our crime

If the Hoodoo Man won’t help me
I gotta run right outta town
If the Hoodoo Man won’t help me
I gotta run right outta town
Cuz that woman got a man
An’ he won’t want me around

Don’t put no Hoodoo spell on me
An’ sprinkle salt all around my bed
Don’t put no Hoodoo spell on me
An’ sprinkle salt all around my bed
Keep a candle in the window
Or tomorrow, I’ll be dead
