I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire,
I got a cobra snake for a necktie
A brand new house on the road side,
And it's a-made out of rattlesnake hide
Got a band new chimney put on top,
And it's a-made out of human skull
Come on take a little walk with me baby,
And tell me who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

Around the town I use a rattlesnake whip,
Take it easy baby don't you give me no lip
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

I've got a tombstone hand and a graveyard mind,
I'm just twenty-two and I don't mind dying
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

Now Arlene took a-me by my hand,
She said "Lonesome George you don't understand,
Who do you love?"
The night were dark and the sky were blue,
Down the alleyway a house wagon flew
Hit a bump and somebody screamed,
You should've heard what I'd seen
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

Yeah, I've got a tombstone hand in a graveyard mine,
Just twenty-two baby I don't mind dying
Snake skin shoes baby put them on your feet,
Got the goodtime music and the Bo Diddley beat
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire,
I got a cobra snake for a necktie
A brand new house on the road side,
And it's made out of rattlesnake hide
Got a band new chimney put on top,
And it's made out of human skull
Come on take a little walk with me child,
Tell me who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
