Hootchie Kootchie Man
Steppenwolf Lyrics

Words and music by Willie Dixon

The gypsy woman told my mama
On the day I was born
Oh, you got a boy child comin'
Oh Lord, he's gonna be a sun of a gun
He's gonna make those pretty women
You know, he's gonna make 'em jump and shout
The whole wide world gonna wonder
What it's all about

Yeah, you know I'm here
And everybody knows I'm here
I'm your Hoochie Coochie man
Oh Lord, Everybody knows I'm here

I got a black cat bone
Lord I got a mojo too
I got little John, the conquered
Oh baby, I'm gonna mess with you
I'm gonna grab those pretty women
I'm gonna grab 'em by the hand
You know, the whole wide world gonna know
Oh Lord, I'm your Hoochie Coochie man
Yes, you know I'm here
Everybody knows I'm here

On the seventh hour
Oh Lord, on the seventh day
I tell you on the seventh month, child
Hey, the seven doctors say
Now he was born for luck
I said, baby, don't you see
I got seven hundred dollars darlin'
Don't you mess with me

Because I'm here
Everybody, everybody knows I'm here
I'm you Hoochie Coochie man
Hey, I tell you, everybody knows I'm here

Wasteland Courier

Some credit should go to Willie Dixon who wrote it to begin with :P


Love that swirling, psychedelic Hammond organ....

chuck dargy

John Goadsby and Richard Wright (pink Floyd) were the only guys I know of back in the day that would or could play the organ/Leslie that way. Both innovative dudes, none to compare with.


It was actually a Lowery organ through a Leslie with a torn speaker.

pbruc brooks

John Kay is just right for this number.
