Evil Woman Spell

This song is by Charlie Spand and appears on the compilation album The Complete Paramounts in Chronological Order (1929-1931) (1992).

A man who's born of a dark woman is bound to see dark days
A man born of a dark woman is bound to see dark days
'Cause a real dark woman
Is bound to have evil ways

I was born in Algiers at twelve o'clock at night
I was born in Algiers twelve o'clock at night
Now, the moon wasn't shining
And it wasn't a bit of light

Lord, a hoodoo woman came in, sit by my mother's bed
Lord, a hoodoo woman came and sat right by my mother's bed
Now, she said, "Before it's over
This poor child wish he was dead"

Lord, my poor mother, she cried
"How can I keep this trouble from my child?"
Lord, my poor mother, she cried
"How can I keep this trouble from my child?"
Lord, that hoodoo woman said
"Don't let him go with other women in this world"

But when I grew up, I didn't listen to my mother's words
Now, when I grew up, I didn't listen to my mother's words
Lord, a no-good woman
Is the cause of me sleeping outdoors with the birds
