    Lyrics

    I got a black widow spider for mama, Lord
    Got a diamond-backed rattler for pa
    Well, I got me a woman down in New Orleans
    Got a friend in Arkansas

    Got a morning full of make believe
    Got an evening full of time

    I've got the hands, pretty lady
    Gonna make you grieve
    Lovin' gonna make you mine

    Ain't never seen your town before
    And I won't be back again
    I need me a place to hide my face
    From the howlin' of the wind

    I got the blues sewn into my jacket sleeve
    Got a goatskin full of wine

    I got the hands, pretty lady
    Gonna make you grieve
    And the lovin' gonna make you mine

    So light the lantern above your door
    And hold your curtains wide
    Take the ribbon from your hair
    And lay it by your side

    And I ain't looking for a lie to believe
    My own'll do me fine

    I got the hands, pretty lady
    Gonna make you grieve
    And the lovin' gonna make you mine

    I got the hands, pretty lady
    Gonna make you grieve
    The lovin' gonna make you mine

    Well, I got the hands, pretty lady
    Gonna make you grieve
    The lovin' gonna make you mine

    Well, I got the hands, pretty lady
    Gonna make you grieve
