Black Snake Dream Blues

Black snake is deceitful : crawling in all in my bed
I had a dream last night : black snake is killed my baby dead

Hey hey mama : black [snake's lying, snake is] all in my hall
And if you quit me mama : you can't see that black snake at all

Listen here mama : black snake is wearing my clothes
And I told you about it : and you put my trunk outdoors

Take me back mama : I [won't, can't] be bad no more
And you can get my loving : if you let that black snake go

Black snake crawl out : he said he don't mean no harm
But I'm getting tired of that black snake : lying in my baby's arms
