lyrics

I went down early in a dirty fight
I woke up with a bad snake bite
A brand new wife with a forked tongue knife
That back-stabbing brunette was just my type

We took a walk down to cheaters creek
Cheaters creek, where the water runs deep
The water runs deep down in cheaters creek
I pushed her in for her Maker to meet

I got a mean grip
I got a voice that’s loud
I got snakebite
That I can’t reach to suck the poison out

River run road I’m driving my truck
Driving my truck and it got stuck
It got stuck and it started to flood
Like a river of guilt running through my blood

Well I like my liquor hard like my sugar from the shack
I take all my money and go down to the track
The horse goes round my heart stands still
Stick my winnings in a bottle of will

I got a mean grip
I got a voice that’s loud
I got snakebite
That I can’t reach to suck the poison out

So I’m sitting here thinking 'bout heaven and hell
Where I want to be when they ring that bell
Heaven and hell is a mighty fine line
A little bit of both gonna suit me just fine
