Sonny Boy Williamson I — Crawlin' King Snake lyrics

Well, I'm a crawlin' King snake, woman
I'm gonna drag all 'round yo' do'
Well, I'm a crawlin' King snake, baby
Babe, I'm 'onna drag all 'round yo' do'
Ain't had a nerve to tell me, yoo-well-well
She didn't want me no more

You couldn't see me, baby
Passin' by
I'm gonna be your crawlin' King snake
'Till the day I die

I'm gonna be yo' crawlin' King snake
I'm draggin' all 'round yo' do'
Ain't had a nerve to tell me, you-well-well
You didn't want poor Joey, no mo'

You couldn't see me, baby
Not when out walkin' by
Might be yo' crawlin' King snake
Mama, if I have to die

'Cause I'm gonna be yo' crawlin' King snake
I'm draggin' all around yo' door
Ain't had a nerve to tell me
Hee-well-well, that you didn't want me, no mo'

I'm goin' back to Memphis
If I have to walk
I ain't got nobody in Chicago
Talk that old baby talk

Oh, I gonna be yo' crawlin' King snake
I'm draggin' all 'round the do'
Ain't had the nerve to tell me, yee-well-well
You didn't want me no more

Now, I'm goin' back to St. Louis
I'm 'onna sit right down
I'm 'onna throw my poison
On ev'ry pretty woman in town

'Cause I'm a crawlin' King snake
I'm draggin' all around yo' do'

'Play it for me awhile, boys'

He had the nerve to tell me, woo-blue
That woman didn't want me no mo'

'Play to my baby gone'

(bass)

Ease on up

(guitar & bass to end)
