rattlesnake in the road
gonna die but he don’t know
sun streaks his stripes of gold
rattlesnake in the road

he’s curled up in a knot
thinks he’s sleepin on a rock
cars swerve but they don’t stop
he’s curled up in a knot

oooooweeee
oooooweeee

he can’t hear but he can feel
vibration of the wheel
so you can’t scare him with your squeal
cuz he can’t hear but he can feel

playin possum that’s for sure
ain’t no way he feels secure
better get on back to his den
cause i got a notion to do him in

ooooweeee
ooooweeee

well let’s see how far he strikes
when i flatten his cold blood bite
he’s the one that started this fight
i’m just tryin to make things right

ooooweeee
ooooweeee
ooooweeee
