"Who Do You Love" as written by Lenny Wolf, Martin Wolff and John Burt Frank....
I walk forty-seven miles of barbed wire
I use a cobra snake for a necktie
I got a brand new house on the roadside
Made from rattlesnake hide
I got a brand new chimney made on top
Made out of a human skull
Now come on take a walk with me, Arlene
And tell me, who do you love?

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

Tombstone hand and a graveyard mind
Just twenty-two and I don't mind dying

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

I rode a lion to town, used a rattlesnake whip
Take it easy Arlene, don't give me no lip

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

Night was dark, but the sky was blue
Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew
Heard a bump, and somebody screamed
You should have heard just what I seen

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

Arlene took me by my hand
And she said ooo-wee, Bo, you know I understand

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

    General CommentThe meaning of the lyrics are a mistery.
    45 miles of barbed wire may refer to being in prison for a while, walking on the courtyard.
    An ice-wagon is a hearse, to transport dead bodies.
    It‘s a real rock ‘n roll classic: over 40 different artists have covered it.

    Song MeaningIt's about voodoo / hoodoo. Maybe the first mainstream song to cover what was, at the time, a rather risque subject.
