Stevangelist Help: johnny cockaroo (31) RE: Help: johnny cockaroo 17 May 01

John The Conqueror Root. Sometimes the spelling and pronunciation are bastardized to "johnny cockeroo" or any number of other forms. OLD southern Negroes used to call it "Johnny Cockeroo" as a 'slang' replacement for the correct, scientific name because they did not have access to books on the herb. What you seek, however, is the Conqueror Root, a root used in "mojo" bags as an agent to either ward off bad luck/the devil or invite good luck/women/prosperity.

I have studied the blues and its history for years and I welcome any chance to be of help.

May The Road Rise To Meet You,
