Black Snake

This song is by John Lee Hooker and appears on the album Country Blues of John Lee Hooker (1959).

He's a mean black snake sucking my rider's tongue
He's a mean black snake been sucking my rider's tongue
And if I catch him down he won't come back no more

And he crawl to my window and he crawl up in my bed
He crawl up to my window crawl up in my baby's bed
He is a mean, mean black snake been sucking my rider's tongue

Get me some toad frog hips
Mix it up together
Gonna whoop it up good
I bet you my bottom dollar
He won't suck my rider's tongue no more

Mean mean mean black snake
Been crawling round my back door
Been crawling round my back door

He worry me all through the day
He worry me all night long
He worry me all through the day
He worry me all day long
I bet you my bottom dollar
I'm going to kill that black snake
He won't suck my rightest tongue no more
He won't suck my baby's tongue
That mean mean black snake
He won't bother me no more
