Memphis Minnie - Stinging Snake Blues lyrics

This house is full of stinging snakes, crawling all in my bed
This house is full of stinging snakes, crawling all in my bed
I can't rest at night from them crawling all under my head

I got up this morning, one stung me on my leg
I got up this morning, one stung me on my leg
I can't sleep at night because they keeps me awake

Hmmmmmm, wonder where my stinging snake gone?
Hmmmmmm, wonder where my stinging snake gone?
I can't see no peace since my stinging snake left me home

I got a stinging snake, I love sometimes better than I do myself
I got a stinging snake, I love sometimes better than I do myself
If the Lord has to take him, I won't be stung by nobody else

Hmmmmmm, where's my stinging snake now?
Hmmmmmm, where's my stinging snake now?
I believe to my soul, that my stinging snake's trying to put me down
