The Little Girl And The Dreadful Snake

Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys

Our Darlin' wandered far away while she was out at play

Lost in the woods she couldn't hear a sound

She was our darlin' girl the sweetest thing in all the world

We searched for her but she couldn't be found

I heard the screams of our little girl far away

Hurry daddy there's an awful dreadful snake

I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary wood

But I reached our darlin' girl too late

Oh I began to sigh I knew that soon she'd have to die

For the snake was warnin' me close by

I held her close to my face she said Daddy kill that snake

It's gettin' dark tell Mommy goodbye

To all parents I must say don't let your children stray away

They need your love to guide them along

Oh God I pray we'll see out darlin' some day

It seems I still can hear her voice around our home
