goin’ to louisiana lyrics – john lee hooker

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, about as a fool can be

now, can’t a woman act funny, heheheheh, 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

ssssssaaaand

well, i’m going tomorrow, but i won’t be gone long
i’m going tomorrow, but i won’t be gone very long
i’m gonna get me a mojo hand, i’m gonna bring it back
home
