  1. Voodoo Slim

From the album Hell Awaits You

Lyrics

Voodoo Slim, evil man
A lot of blood on his hands
Spanish John was on the run from him
Been walking with the wife of Voodoo Slim
Voodoo Slim
Voodoo Slim

Well Spanish John, in a knife attack
Nine inch blade stuck in his back
No one’s sayin’ who did that to him
But the sheriff has been asking for Voodoo Slim
Voodoo Slim
Voodoo Slim

Now Sheriff Brady took him unaware
Put Voodoo Slim straight in the chair
As they pulled the switch well he began to grin
They thought that was the end of Voodoo Slim
Voodoo Slim
Voodoo Slim

I hear the sirens - begin to wail
Something was happening down at the jail
And Sheriff Brady he got a call
Prowler in the execution hall
Now lights were fused and it was black as sin
He drew his weapon and he went on in
There ain’t no pistol no badge of tin
Could save him from the ghost of Voodoo Slim
Voodoo Slim
Voodoo Slim
