Stevie Ray Vaughan - Voodoo Child - Live From Austin, TX 1983





Live from Austin, Texas is a live video by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble. It is a retrospective of the band's two performances on Austin City Limits in 1983 and 1989. The film was released as a DVD on September 3, 1997.


"Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" is a song recorded by the Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1968 that appears as the final track on the Electric Ladyland album released that year. It contains improvised guitar and a vocal from Jimi Hendrix, backed by Noel Redding on bass and Mitch Mitchell on drums.


Stevie Ray Vaughan was hands down one of the best guitarists we have seen or ever will see. He tragically passed away 29 years ago, but his music and spirit remain very much alive! Check out SRV paying tribute to Hendrix with his mind-blowing cover of "Voodoo Child."







Lyrics


Well I'm standin' next to a mountain, chop it down with the edge of my hand

Well I'm standin' next to a mountain, chop it down with the edge of my hand

Pick up the pieces, make an island might even raise a little sand


'Cause I'm a voodoo chile yeah, 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 ya 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
