"The Snakes Crawl at Night" as written by Fred B. Burch and Mel Tillis....
All the snakes crawl at night that's what they say
When the sun goes down then the sneaks will play
Well I watched that car pull right in my driveway
Then I saw a shadow slipping from my house
So I hurried straight and looked into her bedroom
And I found out that it was my loving spouse
All the snakes crawl at night...
So I waited in the shadows until morning and the gun I held was trembling in my hand
No I did not plan to give them any warning
Cause the devil on my shoulder had command
All the snakes crawl at night...
Well the trial in a little while was over and they sentenced me to die right away
But before I leave this courtroom please Your Honor
There is something more I'd like to say
All the snakes crawl at night...
When the sun goes down then the sneaks will play
When the sun goes down then the sneaks will play
