Crawling King Snake Lyrics

Well, I'm the Crawlin' King Snake
And I rule my den
I'm the Crawlin' King Snake
And I rule my den
Yeah, don't mess 'round with my mate
Gonna use her for myself

Caught me crawlin', baby, window
Grass is very high
Keep on crawlin' till...

    So the guy wants to called his pistol a snake. You do dumb stuff when you’re high or drunk like sing songs that say, “I want sex.”

    The song is written By John Lee Hooker. It is not about Jim Morrison. But he surely made it his own.

    Stay away from drugs. This could be about a bad acid trip, or when stone high drunk. Tripping[possibly possessed] to the point of believing and thinking when being in the hallucination transformation period that you're a king snake, who is crawling on hands and knees in the grass and sliding through your girlfriend's window to find your mate there in the room, asking her if she wants to crawl around together with you.

    He speaks of his infidelity and until he finds what satisfies him sexually he will not settle for one mate, one lover. Instead he will seek it in other women. Jim was a womanizer, he slept around a lot. This is a song emphasizing his mojo.
