VERSE:Will it be poison, put in my glass,Will it be slow or will it be fast?The bite of a snake, the sting of a spider,A drink of Belladonna on a Toussaint night.Hiding in a corner in New York City,Lookin" down a forty four in West Virginia.
VERSE:One night I was dancin" with a lady in black,Wearin" black silk gloves and a black silk hat.She looked at me longin" with black velvet eyes,She gazed at me strange all cunning and wise.Then I saw the flesh just fall off her bones,The eyes in her skull was burning like coals.Lord, have mercy, fire and brimstone.I was dancin" with Misses D.
CHORUS:Lord, I was dancin", dancin", dancin" so free,I was dancin", dancin", dancin" so free.Dancin", dancin", dancin" so free.
