Look over my shoulder, please, and tell me what you see
Must be them Hellhounds chasin? after me
I been hidin? in the shadows but the shadows want me, too
Goin? down to find that Chalmette woman
Get her to tell me what to do

I must have really wronged somebody bad
For them to want to end my life so soon
Tree and noose to take whatever life I?ve had
Softly swinging ? Under the Voodoo Moon

Someone has cursed me with a Black Cat bone
I feel so cold and so all alone
Mix me a potion, please, to stop this now
And I?ll pay you back some day, some way, some how

If you?ll just help me, I promise that I?ll change
I?ll walk the line ? I?ll sing a different tune
A haunting melody so sweet and yet so strange
Softly singing ? Under the Voodoo Moon
Under the Voodoo Moon
Under the Voodoo Moon
Under the Voodoo Moon
