    Believe the Snake is actually Raider Great Ken "The Snake" Stabler who grew up in a gulf shores. He was legendary both on & off the field, a wild man with crazy friends. Snake & Buffett were friends

    Snake is the nickname for one of Jimmy Buffet’s bodyguards. It sounds to me like he and his bodyguard stayed at his manager’s home and drank all of his beer and threw a big party there

    Someone who worked in Aspen told me the song is about Jimmy renting his vacation home in Aspen out to tourists.
