"Hoodooin' of Miss Fanny Deberry" as written by and Alex Harvey....
Down in Sunflower County where I was born
Used to be a crazy woman.
Used to walk bare footed down a gravel road
Singin' in an unknown tongue.

One day I asked her Papa why she was crazy
The tears welled up in his eyes,
He said, "The Devil's inside my poor baby,
She be crazy 'til the day she dies.

"You know she's been hoodooed
By the power of the voodoo.
You know she's been hoodooed
By the power of the voodoo."

Said Fanny always was a peculiar child.
Never could make her mind.
She used to slip out and go walkin' in the woods late at night
Always came home cryin'.

But then one night she came home laughin'
Talkin' out of her head.
She said, "Now I ain't got to worry 'bout dyin' Papa
I been sleepin' in a Devil's bed.

"You know she's been hoodooed
By the power of the voodoo.
You know she's been hoodooed
By the power of the voodoo."

Hoodoo woman
Pickin' up Qwewee
Hoodoo woman
Pickin' up Qwewee

Said "Fanny's Mama was a Voodoo Queen
Died when Fanny was born
He remembered her very last words to him.
She said, "I'm goin' Honey, take care of Fanny 'til the Devil comes."

So if you see her buried down in a graveyard
Diggin' in a grave for Foofoo
You know she's gonna hoodoo somebody
And if you cross her she might hoodoo you.

"You know she's been hoodooed
By the power of the voodoo.
You know she's been hoodooed
By the power of the voodoo."

Don't be messin' with a hoodoo woman
She's gonna hoodoo you.
Don't be messin' with a hoodoo woman
She's gonna hoodoo you.
Don't be messin' with a hoodoo woman
She's gonna hoodoo you.

Hoodoo woman
Pickin up a Qwewee
Hoodoo woman
Pickin up a Qwewee
