lyrics

oh sidewinder sidewinder it's a long and intriguing road
won't you cast a shadow, sound your rattle,
won't you give me warning of the blow

well they drove me out with their crazy Marys
but I'm going back to show them more
if I can only summon up the words to get beyond your door

you'll be outsmarted we all think
but it's the same poison we all drink

oh sidewinder sidewinder just up the road ahead
it's a prime stranger courting danger
won't you cast your gaze on him instead

cuz I'm going back with apprehension to face the outfall of my crime
I've got big plans good intentions I only need a little time

you'll be outsmarted we all think
but it's the same poison we all drink

oh sidewinder sidewinder it's a long and intriguing road
won't you cast a shadow, sound your rattle,
won't you give me warning of the blow
