"Music. Fresh From The Hudson Valley"

Copperhead or Cottonmouth

Should have been more careful
I’m really in a jam
Got more than I can handle
I’m a desperate man

Should have tread more lightly
I didn’t stand a chance
There’s trouble in the tall grass
In a serpentine dance

Into the swamp I go
Treading soft and slow
Danger all around
Only two ways out
Copperhead or cottonmouth

Since the dawn of Eden
Temptations every day
Adam stands there clueless
Eve she takes the bait

For the love of beauty
I have crossed the line
Of the seven deadlies
Two or three are mine

Into the swamp I go
Treading soft and slow
Danger all around
Only two ways out
Copperhead or cottonmouth

When the angel flies away
The devil gets his due
Put aside your wicked ways
Or he’ll be coming soon for you

Only two ways out
Copperhead or cottonmouth
