"Rattlesnake" as written by and Anne Erin Clark....
Follow the power lines back from the road
No one around so I take off my clothes
Am I the only one in the only world?
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, whoa

I see the snake holes dotted in the sand
As if the Seurat painted the Rio Grande
Am I the only the one in the only world?
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, whoa

Sweatin', sweatin'
No one is behind me
Sweatin' sweatin'
No one will ever find me

The only sound out here is my own breath
And my feet stuttering to make a path
Am I the only one in the only world?

Is that the wind finally picking up?
Is that a rattle sounding from the brush?
I'm not the only one in the only world
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, whoa

Runnin', runnin'
Runnin' rattle behind me
Runnin', runnin'
No one will ever find me
Runnin', runnin'
Runnin' rattle behind me
Runnin', runnin'
No one will ever find me
Sweatin', sweatin'
Sweatin' rattle behind me
Runnin', runnin'
No one will ever find me
Sweatin', sweatin'
Sweatin' rattle behind me
Runnin', runnin'
No one will ever find me

    General CommentAnne said in an interview that these lyrics are based on her own true story.

    Her friend owned a lot of land out in the middle of nowhere and Anne was visiting. Anne took a walk out into the wild and decided to talk her clothes off, to 'enhance' the experience she was having. To make it more dangerous.

    She suddenly heard bushes rustling followed by the rattle of a snake. She was so freaked out she ran back to her friends house naked, completely leaving her clothes behind.

    I believe the story for two reasons. One, it is way to crazy to just come up with and two, She hardly EVER tells the back story or meanings to her songs.

    Thought I would share that.
