Hey, so this is a really awesome R&B song,
been done by loads of people but my favourite is this Little Esther
Phillips version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9dje2rVl4g. 
It's not really a guitar song (there's a guitar
part in the original, but also trumpets), but I've done my best to work out a good sounding guitar part that 
also mimics some of the other instruments from the original. I was getting frustrated never being able to find
any chords for this song, so I hope this helps someone in a similar situation. Let me know what you think.

Chords for this song are:
C#  (x.4.6.6.6.x)
G#1 (4.6.6.5.4.4)
G#2 (x.11.13.13.13.x)
G#3 (x.6.6.5.x.x)
F#1 (x.9.11.11.11.x)
F#2 (2.4.4.3.x.x)
B   (x.2.4.4.4.x)

All the chords are played in a sort of choppy rhythm, except where specified otherwise: listen to the track 
and it'll give you some idea of the main rhythm.

[Verse 1]

C#
I'm taking four strands of your hair
C#
And a five dollar bill
G#3
I'm gonna put it in a letter, 
C#
And drop it in the mail
G#1
I'm gonna send it to a woman
C#
A friend of mine told me about
C# (heavy rhythm, down-up-down-up-down-up)
Oh she's a gumbo cooker and an alligator whooper
                               C#-B-G#1
Make a dead man jump and shout

[Chorus]

G#1
Talking 'bout a woman name-a Hannah (named Hannah!)
C#
Dooooown in Louisiana
G#1
They tell me she's a mojo worker (Mojo Worker!)
C#
She's gonna work that thing for me (Workin' for me!)
C#
And in my misery (Workin' for me)
G#1                                    C#
And I know you'll be back home a-real soon
               F#1
(Gonna be back home soon!)
      C#
Real soon
               G#2
(Gonna be back home soon!)


[Verse 2]

A|----2-3-4-|
E|--4-------|

C#
She don't wear no fancy stitches
C#
All she wears is a man's britches
G#3
And now and then she takes a little sip
C#
She's got a forty-five on her hip
G#2                                C#
She's built up a strong reputation in the southern land
C# (heavy rhythm, down-up-down-up-down-up)
Ah then Saturday night about twelve o'clock
                               C#-B-G#1
When she voodoos the voodoo man


[Chorus]

G#1
Talking 'bout a woman name-a Hannah (named Hannah!)
C#
Dooooown in Louisiana
G#1
They tell me she's a mojo worker (Mojo Worker!)
C#
She's gonna work that thing for me (Workin' for me!)
C#
And in my misery (Workin' for me)
G#1                                    C#
And I know you'll be back home a-real soon
               F#1
(Gonna be back home soon!)
      C#
Real soon
               G#2
(Gonna be back home soon!)


[Bridge]

F#2                              C#
And I know! I know your mojo's a-workin' good
F#2                           C#
I said its the best in all the world!
F#2                           C#
And I'm a-waitin' by the rail-road track
G#1 (heavy rhythm, down-up down-up)
And I know you're gonna bring him baaaaaaack!

C#         F#1
(Work that thing for me Hannah!)
C#                       F#1
Woooork that thing for me Hannah!
        C#               F#1
I now'm waitin' a-by the railroad track
          C#                 F#1
Because I know, you're gonna bring him back!

(C# and F#1 with choppy rhythm to fade out)
