American Aquarium – Rattlesnake lyrics
[Verse 1]
Well she's born outside of Memphis, just north of Tupelo
Oh Lord, she's a Mississippi Queen
And just like that big river, oh Lord, she'll pull you under
She fights fire with gasoline

[Verse 2]
The first time that I saw her down at the white water
Dance across those ancient hardwood floors
And you could tell she had a history with the cigarettes and whiskey
And the boys that had a way with words

[Chorus]
But I want to make that glorious mistake
She's got the kisses of a thousand angels and the bite of a rattlesnake

[Verse 3]
Much like my first occurrence with straight Kentucky bourbon
Oh Lord, she took my breath away
And when she called me "Darlin'" I started caterwaulin'
Oh, I had nothin' else to say

[Chorus]
But I want to make that glorious mistake
She's got the kisses of a thousand angels and the bite of a rattlesnake

[Verse 4]
And when she gets me all alone she strikes the fear of Jesus
She sends that fear coursin' through my blood
And when we hit the bedroom, it's always fire and brimstone
Yes I have been washed in the flood

[Chorus]
And I want to make that glorious mistake
She's got the kisses of a thousand angels and the bite of a rattlesnake

She's got the kisses of a thousand angels and the bite of a rattlesnake
