Voodoo Chile

Lyrics: Jimi Hendrix
Music: Jimi Hendrix

A Jimi Hendrix song played by Phil Lesh and Friends at Halloween 2007, in a slightly truncated version:

Well, I'm a voodoo chile
Lord, I'm a voodoo chile

Well, the night I was born
Lord I swear the moon turned fire red
The night I was born
The moon turned fire red
My poor mother cried out, lord, the gypsy was right
And I seen her fall down dead

Mountain lion found me waiting
Set me on a eagle's back
Mountain lion found me there
And set me on a eagle's wing
Took me out to the outskirts of infinity
And when I arrived back
He gave me a witch's ring
I'm a voodoo chile
Lord, a voodoo chile

My arrows are made of desire
From far away Jupiter's sulphur mines
Say my arrows are made of desire
Far away as Jupiter's sulphur mines
I got a humming bird, hums so loud
You think you're losing your mind
I'm a voodoo chile
Lord, a voodoo chile
