Hoochie Koochie Man

Hoochie Coochie Man was written by Willie Dixon in 1953. It was first recorded by McKinley Morganfield AKA Muddy Waters In January 1954. It is an erotic song and talks about black magic. I got a Black Cat Bone,,, I got a Mojo too. I got a Johnny Conquer root,,,,, Talks about the magic number 7. Slang words for alcohol and sex, Hoochie Coochie Man, goes on to reference a Gypsy woman’s prophies, It’s the story about the mysterious ways of life in the Cajun delta. Those things coupled with swaggering guitar and harmonica riffs with powerful stops put Willie and Muddy on the music map!
