The Snakes Crawl At Night Lyrics
The Snakes Crawl At Night

Chorus
Oh the snakes crawl at night, that's what they say
When the sun goes down. Oh the snakes will play

I watched that car pull right up into my driveway
Saw the shadow slip away from my house
So I hurried straight and looked into her room
And I found out that it was my loving spouse

Repeat chorus

So I waited in the shadows until morning
And the gun that I held was trembling in my hand
No I did not mean to give them any warning
For the devil on my shoulder had command

Repeat chorus

Oh the trial in a little while was over
And they sentenced me to die right away
But before I leave this courtroom please your honor
There is something more that I would like to say

Repeat chorus
