Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble - Voodoo Chile (Live From Austin, TX)

"Voodoo Chile" is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and recorded in 1968 for the third Jimi Hendrix Experience album Electric Ladyland. It is based on the Muddy Waters blues song "Rollin' Stone", but with original lyrics and music. At 15 minutes, it is Hendrix's longest studio recording and features additional musicians in what has been described as a studio jam.

"Voodoo Chile" was recorded at the Record Plant in New York City, after a late night jam session with Hendrix, Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, organist Steve Winwood, and bassist Jack Casady. The song became the basis for "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)", recorded by the Experience the next day and one of Hendrix's best-known songs.

"Chile" is a phonetic approximation of "child" without the "d". In the UK, "Voodoo Chile" was also used as the title of the 1970 single release of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)", that has caused confusion regarding the two songs.

 
Lyrics: Well, I'm standing next to a mountain, chop it down with the edge of my hand Well, I'm standing next to a mountain, chop it down with the edge of my hand Pick up all the pieces, make an island, might even raise a little sand 'Cause I'm a voodoo chile, Lord knows I'm a voodoo chile I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time Give it right back to you one of these days I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time Give it right back to you the rest of my days I won't see you again in this world, see you in the next one Don't be late, don't be late 'Cause I'm a voodoo chile yeah, Lord knows I'm a voodoo chile
