I got High John in my pocket
And mud in my shoes
Walked all the way from Mississippi
Just to spread the news

Don't care for idle conversation
I'm not your girl about town
But when it comes to make music
I run the voodoo down

And here in this quiet place I own
Worlds are born

The night of my conception
The star were fixed
Conjure woman told my mother
She's gonna run and twist

Don't have to worry 'bout her learning
She's gonna get around
And when it comes to traveling
She'll run the voodoo down

Here in this quiet place we own
We're born

Destiny is my deliverance
I walk this road alone
I take my pleasure in remembering
I'm just a rolling stone

And I don't mind some company
If you want to stay around
But when it comes to my loving
I run the voodoo down

And here in this quiet place I own
Worlds are born
