Meanest Snake Alive

I was fishing this weekend
And a cotton-mouth got after me
My revolver ... slung low on my hip
Was out before the snake could reconsider
And I blew his fangs out the back of his head
Moral of this story?
Don't mess with a country boy when he's trying to fish


*Just a bit of fun...and sorry to any snake fans out there...I must admit, I'm a venomous snake killer from way back...it's in my blood.
