Guilty Snake Blues
(Tommy Womack)

Politics bore me, let’s not bring it up at all
Politics bore me, let’s not bring it up at all
You’re either preaching to the choir, or talking to the wall

I’m gonna find me a meeting and I’m not gonna share
I’m gonna find me a meeting and I’m not gonna share
For once in my life just wanna be some guy sittin’ there

I got a guilty snake, coiled around my brain
I got a guilty snake, coiled around my brain
It’s gonna die of malnutrition or it’s gonna drive me insane

Could be one of so many one-too-manys I’ve had
Could be one of so many one-too-manys I’ve had
Could be a girl in Mississippi who’d be happy to hear I feel bad

I’ve been on the road a long and lonely time
I’ve been on the road a long and lonely time
It’s been both a downward spiral and an uphill climb

If you don’t mind me saying, there’s a serpent in your tree
If you don’t mind me saying, there’s a serpent in your tree
That forbidden fruit you’re holding is sorely tempting me

If it wasn’t screwed on I’d’ve long ago lost my head
If it wasn’t screwed on I’d’ve long ago lost my head
Somedays I’m just amazed I find my way out of bed




I said what I said, it was wrong, or was taken wrong, and now it’s all this
I said what I said, it was wrong, or was taken wrong, and now it’s all this
I’m out on New Year’s Eve, with no one to kiss

You can hide inside the sadness, hide behind the shame
You can hide inside the sadness, hide behind the shame
Every time you masturbate God kills a kitten and a mark goes by your name

You can pray for mercy, for your fellow man to be kind
You can pray for mercy, for your fellow man to be kind
You can pray for anything, but don’t expect God to change his mind
