Who Do Voodoo?

For Steve Goetz



Who Do Voodoo?

Frank Maier 8/2014

 

INTRO

V1
Amin
Oh, I need me a Voodoo Mambo,

                                                           Dmin
Maybe a Houngan would do.
                                                           Emin

Too many friends been threatened

Amin

By Baron Samedi’s krewe.

 V2

One has got failing veins,
Another one’s got the cancer.

Some chicken blood on Marie Laveau’s tomb
Just might be the answer.


CHORUS
Dmin

Gris-gris for me,
Emin                            Amin
A sliver dime for you,

Dmin
That’ll get our mojo working.

Emin                            E7
Who do Voodoo?

(We do!)

RIDE verse form
BRIDGE

(change tempo)  Amin – Emin+G - Amin
Fight, mighty coeur de bayou, fight!

Don’t get dragged into that dark night.
Dmin – Amin+C - Dmin

Call your flag boy and your spy boy, too.
Your whole tribe is there for you. (Amin transition)

Emin – Bmin+D – Emin
No y’all can’t keep us down.

We gonna rule this whole damned town! (E7 transition and change tempo back to basic)

V3
Loa been ridin’ us too hard

And ridin’ too damned long.
Gonna get my krewe together

Make a god-ouanga from this song.

CHORUS
RIDE

 V4
Now we done with all this drama.

Now the end of things is near.
Big Chief is feelin’ better,

Ain’t no Damballah to fear.

CHORUS
OUTRO
