Mojo Hand
Lightnin' Hopkins Lyrics


I'm goin' to Louisiana
And get me a mojo hand
I'm goin' to Louisiana
And get me a mojo hand
I'm gonna fix my woman so
She can't have no other man

Cold ground was my bed last night
Rocks was my pillow too
Cold ground was my bed last night
Rocks was my pillow too
I woke up this morning, I'm wondering
What in the world am I gonna do?

I lay down thinking
Buy me a mojo hand
I lay down thinking
Buy me a mojo hand
I did wanna fix my woman so she can't have no other man

But don't let your woman
Fix you like mine fixed me
Don't let your woman, boy, fix you like mine fixed me
She make a fool about her, oh, about as a fool can be

Now, can't a woman act funny
Ha-ha-ha, when she got another man?
Can't a woman act funny
When she got another man?
You know, she won't look straight at you
Then she's always raisin' sand, sand

Well, I'm going tomorrow
But I won't be gone long
I'm going tomorro
But I won't be gone very long
I'm gonna get me a mojo hand, I'm gonna bring it back home

That's what I'm gonna do

The intro, the middle eight and the turn around, it's all here....it looks easy untill you try to emulate him......at 76 years of age this has inspired me to buy a guitar.... ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Josh Randal

What he said.!!

Danny Harrington

Right!!!!! Looks easy ,,,,,, till you try to play it! Lightning is always a challenge for me. His soul was in his fingers.
Man was made a $50. Guitar sound like a million bucks.
I was born to late, wish I could have seen the guy live

G. Mantua

So glad that these blues pioneers have been recorded in one way or another, but I often wonder how many we've never heard of and never will.

rudy von zippa

way too many, sorry to say

Omair Sheikh

Such a monster guitarist.
He can play the bassline, rhythm AND lead melodies together!

Miki Domeny

well it is a foolish thing to say but I´ll say it anyway: the greatest ever..

Danny Harrington

I'm a fool with you. Hopkins is the KING!!!! Sorry Elvis🤣

Danny Harrington

Funny thing is? Hes one of the hardest guys to copy.
Probably because he played with his soul.....not his fingers...😎👍⚡

Guilherme de Brito

The bluesmen got a true connection with their instruments, I've never seen anything like this before. It's not just an instrument, it's part of their body, a extension of their soul...
What this man can do with a guitar in his hand Is a master piece of humankind art.
Long live blues!
