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...

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
Cause the devil on my shoulder had command
All te snakes crawl at night...

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's something more that I would like to say
Oh the snakes crawl at night...
Oh the snakes crawl at night...
