The Little Girl and the Dreadful Snake
Written by Bill Monroe




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.


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.


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.


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.
