HOODOO MAN
(Sonny Boy Williamson I (John Lee))

Lord, I wonder what's the matter, I'm crying all the time
The minutes seem like hours, everything's the same
But I'm holding my hand, Lord I'm trying to make my baby understand

Somebody done tell me, Junior, somebody done hoodoo the hoodoo man
I buzzed your bell this morning, elevator running slow
I buzzed your bell this morning, take me up to your third floor.
But I'm holding my hand, Lord I'm trying to make my baby understand

I'm gonna tell you one time, ain't gonna tell you no more
If I have to tell you again, I'm gonna let you go
But I'm holding my hand, Lord I'm trying to make my baby understand

Does "Snatch It Back and Hold It" have anything to do with the wind? There is a spiritual about that. Possibly related?

No lyrics, but an MP3 here. Maybe you could get the lyrics from it. Also,
Lyrics for a blues song, "Snatchn' it Back" are here, at Harry's Blues, but I suspect it is not what you are looking for.

"Snatch It Back and Hold It" is indeed the correct title of a song by Junior Wells.

It was recorded by Junior Wells on "Hoodoo Man Blues," 1965; by Aron Burton on "Aron Burton Live," 1996; and by James Solberg on "See That My Grave is Kept Clean," 1995.

Junior Wells' recording is also on the compilation album, "40th Anniversary Blues," 1993; on the Laserlight compilation CD "Midnight Blues," 1994; on the 5-CD Laserlight compilation "Blues Box," 1994.

All this information comes from AMG.

CDNOW has a sound sample, but these are the only lyrics I heard there:

"Everybody tells me, I'm not doing too bad, baby.
You know I ain't got no brand-new bag."

SNATCH IT BACK AND HOLD IT
Written by Amos Blakemore
As sung by Junior Wells' Chicago Blues Band on "Hoodoo Man Blues" (1965)

Snatch it back and hold it,
Baby, one more time.
I ain't doin' too bad, babe.
I got you on my mind.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!
You havin' a darn good time.

Somebody he'p me.
I can't he'p myself.
Somebody's got to he'p me,
'Cause I can't he'p myself.
I'm not doin' too bad, baby.
You know I ain't got no brand-new bag.

Somebody he'p me.
I can't he'p myself.
Somebody better he'p me,
'Cause I can't he'p myself.
I ain't doin' too bad, baby,
And I ain't got no brand-new bag.

Snatch it back and hold it.
I want to tell you where it's at.
All the kids in the neighborhood,
They doin' a brand-new dance.
Snatch it back and hold it.
I want to show you where it's at.

Said-a one more time.
It's a one more time.
Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Baby, one more time.
All the kids in the neighborhood,
They know just where it's at.

Snatch it back and hold it.
Snatch it back and hold it.
Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Snatch it back and hold it.
Said-a hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!
Hey!
