The Rattlesnake Trail Lyrics


got a hair shirt round my shoulder. got a cold stew in my spoon.
and i’m falling on my head, lifting feet of lead —
now it’s got me baying at the moon.
well, there’s a race on for tomorrow. i’m stretching out
for what might have been.
going to come out from the night, got my second sight —
play rough — you know what i mean.
i’m going for the kill. i’m going tooth and nail
up that dusty hill — on the rattlesnake trail.got the law laid down to the left of me. got the real world to the right.
heading up through the middle with my cat and my fiddle —
yeah, looking for a fight.
going to ride hard in bandit country — on the blind side of the bend.
keep my nose to the wind while the rabbit’s skinned —
bed down at the journey’s end. (be a rattlesnake.)
i’m going for the kill. i’m going tooth and nail
up that dusty hill — on the rattlesnake trail.the rattlesnake trail.
i’m going on the rattlesnake trail.going to be with wolves in winter — run in angry packs by day.
but when you give a dog a bone, he has to be alone —
growl, keep the other dogs away.
see that thin moon on the mountain. see that cold star in the sky.
going to bring them down — shake them to the ground —
put that apple in the pie. (be a rattlesnake.)
i’m going for the kill. i’m going tooth and nail
up that dusty hill — on the rattlesnake trail.
