You better leave that poison alone
I said leave that poison alone
Won't you leave that poison alone, boy
Or you're gonna be long gone
Yeah, you gonna be long gone

Your mama tried her best to learn you well, son
Your mama tried her best to learn you well
Yes, your mama she tried her best to learn you well
But it seems as though you're headed straight for hell
Oh I said, boy, you is bound for hell

Your daddy, he ain't sleeping at night
Said, your daddy, he ain't sleeping at night
The pills and the liquor, they just don't work
Try hard as is he might
Said, your daddy, he ain't sleeping at night

And your little sister's heart is gonna break, break, break
I said, them little sisters' hearts is gonna break
Oh, them little old sisters' hearts is going to break
If you don't learn to walk it straight
Boy, you'd best learn to walk it straight

Now I said leave that poison alone
Oh won't you leave that poison alone, boy
Won't you leave that poison alone, boy
Or you gonna be long gone
Yeah, you gonna be long gone
I said, look, you're as good as
