Black Snake Moan Lyrics

by Samuel L. Jackson

Well, ain't got no momma now
Yeah, ain't got no momma now
She told me late last night
You don't need no momma no how

Sit here wonderin' would a matchbox hold my clothes
Yeah, matchbox hold my clothes
I ain't got so many matches
But Lord I got so doggone far to go

I got a great long snake crawlin' around my room
Yeah, crawlin' around my room
Handsome pretty momma better come down here
Take that long snake soon

That must been a bedbug, I know a chinch can't bit that hard
Yeah, chinch can't bit that hard
Asked my woman for fifty cents
She said, "Jimmie, I ain't got a dime in the yard"

Well, well ain't got no momma now
Yeah, ain't got no momma now
She told me late last night
You don't need no momma no how
