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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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