The Snakes Crawl at Night
Recorded by Charley Pride
written by Mel Tillis and Fred Burch
 
 G                           
The snakes crawl at night
                  C   G  
That's what they s-ay 
                   D7      
When the sun goes down
                      G      
Then the snakes will play


I watched that car pull into my driveway
                                D7       
Saw a shadow slip away from my house
        
Then I hurried straight and looked in her room
                            G        
And found it was my loving spouse


So I waited in the shadows until morning
                                        D7      
And the gun I held was trembling in my hand
      
No I did not plan to give them any warning
                                  G         
For the devil on my shoulder had command


Oh the trial in a little while was over
                                    D7      
And they sentenced me to die right away
          
But before I leave this courtroom please your honor
                                             G     
There's something more that I would like to say
