The Little Girl and the Dreadful Snake
Written by Bill Monroe



Chords


Song

1.

Our darling wandered far away while she was out at play,
Lost in the woods she couldn't hear a sound,
She was our darling girl the sweetest thing in all the world,
We searched for her but she couldn't be found.

chorus:

I heard the screams of our little girl far, far away,
Hurry Daddy there's and awful dreadful snake,
I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary wood,
But I reached our darling girl too late.

2.

Oh I began to cry I knew that soon she'd have to die,
For the snake was warning me close by,
I held her close to my face she said daddy kill that snake,
It's getting dark tell mommy goodbye.

3.

To all parents I must say don't let your children stray away,
They need your love to guide them along,
Oh G-d I pray we'll see our darling girl some day,
It seems we still can hear her voice around our home.
