Song of the Month | Koko Taylor

Don’t Dance Her Down Boys has gone on a bit of a hiatus as you can tell but we’re back up and running and to kick things off here’s the Song of the Month.
This month’s post is all about the Queen of the Blues and her amazing number ‘Voodoo Woman’. The power in this song and Taylor’s voice completely blew me away when I first heard it. I can imagine PJ Harvey doing an amazing cover with her white lady blues voice and everything.
Feel the power of the voodoo woman, it’ll put a spell on you…get it.

Lyrics:
They call me the voodoo woman,
And i know the reason why,
They call me the voodoo woman,
And i know the reason why,
Lord if i raise my name,
Youu know the sky begin to cry.

They call me the voodoo woman,
I look through water and spied by land
They call me the voodoo woman,
I look through water and spied by land
I tell all you men
If your woman got another man.

I got a rabbit foot in my pocket,
A toad frog in my shoes,
A crawfish on my shoulder,
Lookin dead at you,
I got dust from a rattlesnake,
I got a black spider bone,
If that don’t do it baby,
You’d better leave it all alone.

They call me the voodoo woman,
And i know the reason why,
Lord if i raise my name,
You know the sky begin to cry.

I got a rabbit foot in my pocket,
A toad frog in my shoes,
A crawfish on my shoulder,
Lookin dead at you,
I got dust from a rattlesnake,
I got a black spider bone,
If that don’t do it baby,
You’d better leave it all alone.

They call me the voodoo woman,
And i know the reason why,
They call me the voodoo woman, and i know the reason why,
Lord if i raise my name,
You know the sky begin to cry.
Lord if i raise my name,
You know the sky begin to cry.
Lord if i raise my name,
You know the sky begin to cry.
Lord if i raise my name,
You know the sky begin to cry.
