Hoodoo Lady

Hoodoo Lady

Hoodoo lady, how do you do?
They tell me you take a boot and turn it to a brand new shoe
But don't put that thing on me
Don't put that thing on me
Don't put that thing on me
'Cause I'm going back to Tennessee

Hoodoo lady, you can turn water to wine
I been wondering where have you been all this time
I'm setting here broke, and I ain't got a dime
You ought to put something in these dukes of mine
But don't put that thing on me
Don't put that thing on me
Don't put that thing on me
'Cause I'm going back to Tennessee

Hoodoo lady, I want you to unlock my door
So I can get in and get all my clothes
But don't put that thing on me
Don't put that thing on me
Don't put that thing on me
'Cause I'm going back to Tennessee

Now look-a here, hoodoo lady, I want you to treat me right
Bring my man back home but don't let him stay all night
And don't put that thing on me
Don't put that thing on me
Don't put that thing on me
'Cause I'm going back to Tennessee

Why look here, hoodoo lady, I'm your friend
When you leave this time, come back again
But don't put that thing on me
Don't put that thing on me
Don't put that thing on me
'Cause I'm going back to Tennessee

Very cool! I’ve recently discovered her music- so many fantastic songs and lyrically, musically brilliant.

She should have been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in the early influence category. Her blues style is awesome and influential.

@Marco Evans bullshit. No minnie = no zeppelin.

Marco Evans

1251caveman - She doesn't need to be in the hof with those others.

@Mercmad

Led Zepplin borrowed plenty.

Software and music "writers" copy aplenty.

Mercmad

Led Zeppelin for one, when the levee breaks. Was Written by minnie.

Right??? It's staggering that artists (plural, not singular) who cover her songs are in the hall of fame, but not this phenomenal woman.
