The Snake

Al Wilson

 Dm
 On her way to work one morning
Down the path along side the lake
 A7
A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake
 Dm
His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew
 A7
"Poor thing," she cried, "I'll take you in and I'll take care of you"
 Dm
 "Take me in tender woman
Take me in, for heaven's sake
 A7
Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake

She wrapped him all cozy in a comforter of silk
And laid him by her fireside with some honey and some milk
She hurried home from work that night and soon as she arrived
She found that pretty snake she'd taken to had bee revived
"Take me in, tender woman
Take me in, for heaven's sake
Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake

 D#m
 She clutched him to her bosom, "You're so beautiful," she cried
 A#7
"But if I hadn't brought you in by now you might have died"
 D#m
 She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight
 A#7D#m
Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite

"Take me in, tender woman
Take me in, for heaven's sake
 A#7
Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake

 Em
 "I saved you," cried the woman
"And you've bitten me, but why?
 B7
You know your bite is poisonous and now I'm going to die"
 Em
 "Oh shut up, silly woman," said the reptile with a grin
 B7Em
"You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in
"Take me in, tender woman
Take me in, for heaven's sake
^ B7 Em
Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake
