Black Snake Blues

This song is by Jeff Martin and appears…


In the dying, dying winds
Hear the black snake sing the blues
In the dying, dying wind now
Hear the black snake sing the blues
All the saints will fall into sin
And there's nothing you can do

If the devil gives no pardon
Is my waiting all in vain?
If the devil gives no pardon
Is my waiting all in vain?
If the black snake takes my soul
Does the story stay the same?

Could you bathe me down in the river
And please try and save my soul?
Could you bathe me down in the river
And please try to save my soul?
If the black snake comes along
Feel that river running cold

Save me please, Saint Peter
Keep me from the fire
Walk me into heaven
And let me hear the choir

'Cause I've cried my tears, sweet Jesus
And I've fallen into shame
I have cried my tears, sweet Jesus
And I've fallen into shame I have
If the black snake comes along
Does the story stay the same?
