Lyrics

SNAKE HANDLING MAN
(words & music by the HELLROYS)

I take up serpents, baby, when I go to church 
It’s in the scripture, baby, read it verse by verse
I take up serpents, baby, when I think of you
I nearly beat that snake to death
When you wore them Daisy Dukes 

I said I shake. Shake that snake. C’mon now, shake
Shake that snake. You know I shake. Shake that snake 
I got a spitting cobra, baby, in my tight right hand
I’m a old fashioned snake handling man

You play your flute, baby, and try to charm my snake
But temptation’s cruel, baby, and I might could break
So tell me true, baby, if I ever doubt
And that snake could turn and bite me
Will you suck the poison out?

I said I shake. Shake that snake. C’mon now, shake
Shake that snake. You know I shake. Shake that snake 
I said I wanna touch your hiney, but it’s not God’s plan
I’m a old fashioned snake handling man 

I take up serpents, baby, when I go to church 
It’s in the scripture, baby, read it verse by verse
I take up serpents, baby, when I think of you
I nearly beat that snake to death
When you wore them Daisy Dukes 

I said I shake. Shake that snake. C’mon now, shake
Shake that snake. You know I shake. Shake that snake 
I said I wanna touch your hiney, but it’s not God’s plan
I’m a old fashioned snake handling
Crumb snatching, pan handling,
Old fashioned snake handling man
