Witchy Woman Lyrics - Eagles

Review The Song (9)

Raven hair and ruby lips
sparks fly from her finger tips
Echoed voices in the night
she's a restless spirit on an endless flight

wooo hooo witchy woman, see how high she flies
wooo hooo witchy woman, she got the moon in her eye

She held me spellbound in the night (wooooh)
dancing shadows and firelight
crazy laughter in another room
and she drove herself to madness... with a silver spoon

wooo hooo witchy woman, see how high she flies
wooo hooo witchy woman, she got the moon in her eye


Well I know you want a lover,
let me tell your brother,
sponsored links
she's been sleeping in the Devil's bed.
And there's some rumors going round
someone's underground
she can rock you in the nighttime 'til your skin turns red

wooo hooo ,witchy woman see how high she flies
wooo hooo, witchy woman she got the moon in her eye

Witchy Woman - Behind the meaning. | Reviewer: MoJo | 10/24/13

Zelda Fitzgerald was the inspiration for "Witchy Woman", the song of seductive enchantresses written by Don Henley and Bernie Leadon for the Eagles, after Henley read Zelda's biography, of the muse, the partial genius behind her husband F. Scott Fitzgerald, the wild, bewitching, mesmerizing, quintessential "Flapper" of the Jazz Age and the Roaring Twenties embodied in The Great Gatsby as the uninhibited and reckless personality of Daisy Buchanan.

Zelda's behavior in the lyrics of "Witchy Woman" refer to her partying excesses that were detrimental to her psyche: "She drove herself to madness with the silver spoon," is a reference to Zelda's time in a mental institution and the Absinthiana, slotted silver spoon used to dissolve sugar cubes with Absinthe, the popular 1920s alcoholic beverage distilled from the wormwood herb and called "the green fairy" for sometimes inducing hallucinations.

witchy woman's meanings | Reviewer: mary hill | 3/27/13

The song is a reference to Zelda Fitzgerald, a woman Henley read about and interpreted in this song. As a generation of dopers we all would like for it to be about a drug addicted woman and its actually more about insanity and sexuality that I am sure Henley saw in lots of women he met. I think its a very romanticized song about mental illness

silver spoon | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/28/13

This is in reference to the special slotted spoon used for dissolving sugar cubes with Absinthe, a drug commonly used in the 30's. The woman the song was based on spent time in a mental institution. It's all on Wikipedia.

dragons? | Reviewer: the devil | 2/15/13

i thought it was about a restless spirit on an endless flight and the voices she thought were outside of herself were just echoes from her own voice..she wants to hear those laughs in the other room..cuz shes been staring at her reflection driving herself insane..trying to forget it was just her

da truth | Reviewer: smooth | 8/24/12

A classic song about a girl who is addicted to drugs. Spoons cook dope crack and are used to draw what ever your shootIng Into a syrInge ect. MInature sIlver spIce spoons are common to snIff cocaIne heroin etc.She's flying high by getting high but she will never reach the moon In her eye. That's just saying one use is too many one more is never enough. A common saying in narcotics aanonymous. She's sleeping in the devil's bed. Drugs are product of the devil. That's all folks

AWESOME | Reviewer: alan jackson | 8/23/11

It's obvious that the song describes a gorgeous chick that's strung out on a drug that has to be cooked ( in those days) in a spoon, or bottle top. Considering that Heroine, Cocaine, & Speed were commonly used in the 70's and was melted down in water over a open flame ie. candle, lighter or matches is where the lyrics imply, " Shadows dancing in the nite.." came from. Restless spirit is synonymous with withdrawals, and cravings. Some women have a rapacious hunger for sex when using heroine,hence the lyrics," she'll rock you in the night until your skin turns red..."

Many types... | Reviewer: Will | 4/1/10

There are many types of meanings that could be derived from this song but considering that it seems to ahve a sex and kinda sexual undertone to it, done very tastefully i might add, I'd say that silver spoon is used for something a bit more than chasing dragons or proving she's rich if you get my meaning...

Witchy Woman Lyrics | Reviewer: Connie Daniels | 5/12/07

A friend and I have a little debate about some of the lyrics. When the song goes "and she drove herself to madness.....with a silver spoon", I say she is chasing the dragon, but my friend says she could be rich - the silver spoon - who is right?
