Crawlin' King Snake

This song is by Big Joe Williams and appears…

Well, I'm a crawlin' king snake, woman, I'm gon' joint all 'round your door
Said, I'm a crawlin' king snake, baby, baby, I'm gon' joint all 'round your door
She had the nerve to tell me, hoo-well, well, she didn't want me no more

You couldn't see me baby, passin' by
I'm gon' be your crawlin' king snake, 'til the day I die
I'm gon' be your crawlin' king snake, I'm gon' joint all 'round your door
You had the nerve to tell me, hoo-well, well, you didn't want poor Joe Williams no more

You couldn't see me, baby, not when I's walkin' by
Gon' be your crawlin' king snake, mama, if I have to die
'Cause I'm gonna be your crawlin' king snake, gon' joint all 'round your door
You had the nerve to tell me, hoo-well, well, that you didn't want me no more

I'm gwine back to Memphis, if I have to walk
I ain't got nobody in Chicago, talk that old baby talk
I'm gon' be your crawlin' king snake, gon' joint all 'round your door
You had the nerve to tell me, hoo-well, well, you didn't want me no more

I'm gwine back to St. Louis, I'm gon' sit right down
I'm gonna throw my poison on every pretty woman in town
'Cause I'm a crawlin' king snake, gon' joint all 'round your door
Play it for me a while, boy
She had the nerve to tell me, hoo-blues, that woman didn't want me no more

Play 'til my baby comes. Ease on out
