At the end of the road, where the cottonwood growed A snake stopped to climb up in a tree For a moment he heard his mama’s final words, said: Son, leave that old crow be The snakes all know to fear the mean old crow And never follow where the bird has flown And heed my words and fear the mean old bird And promise me you’ll leave her legs alone Then a snake, pure and white, said: Boy, your mama’s right There is wisdom dripping from her forked tongue You know that bird will kill -- yeah, she’s sharpened up her bill And she likes the taste of snake when it’s young Then a snake, bloody red, appeared to him and said: I haven’t seen that crow anywhere And I bet your jaw is stronger than her claw And that crow’s got plenty to share (Get on it, son) He took the egg and turned to go, yeah and there he saw that crow For his short little life he began to beg What kind of crow would I be if I let the snake go free Who dared to come and try to steal my egg? So she tore the snake apart, and she ate his little heart And she threw his broken body from the tree And he heard his mama short as his blood was spilling out: Oh Sonny, won’t you come home to me? Oh Sonny, won’t you come home to me? Oh Sonny! won’t you come home to me?
