  • I'm playing the Snake on a loop. Fantastic lyrics. Should be sung everywhere.

  • God forgiven,! But not right World

  • I hate lairs and Cheaters!

  • Saw this song title and thought of Al Wilson's The Snake from around 1968. Checked and it is on UZfire.

  • Love it 😊

  • Yesssss!!! 2021 for sure!!!

  • Love these 2 .... this is the perfect song to explain the 2020 election

  • Anyone here December 2020 waiting to see which viper wins?

  • Oh wow....

  • Great song

  • the hawk doesn't care

  • No band, no pyro, no chicks shaking their asses. Just two of the greatest talents in music today, two guitars and a song with a message deeper than these record companies' pockets.

  • This song needs to hit radio

  • I love ashley but nobody can ever take Joanna Cottons place she is a bad ass voice in any genre!!!

  • I love this damn song any version Eric does...

  • sonic the hedgehog

  • That's right, perfect timing!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • Love the Chief

  • Just seeing this. Night shift after slinging booze all night for them trucks in TN. Same place you filmed a video in our keg room! Appreciate you.

  • Love this song he is so awesome

  • He is Amazing

  • But thanks for the game plan

  • I've heard better songs at a burping competition

  • Lol

  • Chief telling the truth on a huge stage. need more like him.

  • Eric

  • 🙌💃🏻🔥🤠👁👁

  • that was so freaking nasty. awesome job.

  • Nothing better than an artist who sounds the same if not better live than on the radio. I’m in awwwww I want to go see Eric church!

    • I know. I need to see him next time he's on tour, which will hopefully be next year.

  • Snake 1 calling snake2 u all right no 4 is playing with no1 phone number two u have my blessing to bite him

  • Im scared

  • Hahaha

  • Can anyone tell me what does this song mean? I guess I am very old school..I do not understand the lyrics at all? I was raised on the really old country music..but I dont understand thos song?Can someone please tell me what they are trying to say?

    • The rattlesnake & copperhead are all politicians. The sheep are citizens and the shepherd is the media.

    • This is a song about a rattlesnake and copperhead fighting. The whole story behind this is that the rattlesnake and the copperhead are the Democrats and Republicans. If they worked together, things would get done. Instead, they continue to fight against each other.

  • kane brown needs to go to rattle snake school

  • 🎶♥️🎶 What an artist ‼️ All you politicians ... A song just about y’all❗️

  • Kick assume song

  • Bucket list: I could just sit and watch Eric playing his guitar.

  • Eric Church songs tell what the media don't want you to know.

  • This song is great but the performance with the snakes looked so cool

  • She is one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen

  • Preach it, Chief. Just Preach. Ya got it right for sure...Powerful words to challenge anyone's thought process on the political climate today. Bob Dylan-esque would be proud. Keep it up..more of this shit right here is what we need!

  • Flippin Bassery all over that stage..the whole performance..that's awesome..the truth in the song ....like the Copperhead said...

  • I love this pot head. All his music is awesome

    • @derek0173 “pothead” lol.

  • Ifirst time i ever hear this song but i love it

  • I'm so glad he did this with Ashley she is Amazing.

  • I'm glad if Sturgill is banned at least they will let Eric in.

  • It is a good song but he could have done like desperate man, some of it or like hangin around

  • Travis Meadows wrote this..

  • What an absolute stunning stage production!

  • Ashley Mcbryde is the next biggest artist. Just wait! Shes amazing!!!

  • Eric Church = Modern Day Johnny Cash!

    • OK, possibly the most asinine comment I've read all week..

  • I'll be seeing Ashley live for the first time in July and Eric (TWICE) in October. That will be my 30th (?) EC show. I have to take an official count, but it's a lot! These artists seriously make the monotony of day-to-day life worth living. Thank you!

  • Awesome !~!~!~!~ Love Eric Church No Hold Bars !~!~!~

  • Super satanic song and performance. Wake up people, YOU ARE the sheep 🐑!!!!!

  • The fact that this is the song you chose, out of all your songs....dude, respect

  • Eric! Cool and Ashley McBride

  • Netflix

  • Eric Church you rock

  • Wonderful performance!

  • Total Devil Went To Georgia vibe. I love them together. Need more duets from them.

  • Yasssssssss one of my favs

  • Love this! I've always thought Ashley McBryde is the Female version of Eric Church! ❤🎶❤

  • Amazing!!!!!! That is all I have to say!!

  • Amen

  • Little bit of WICKED in this song ya think? L🖤v It!😉

  • Take a moment to applaud Eric for choosing this track to sing at the awards. Open eyes.

    • He sings nothing but truth. I back this man before any politicians any day of the year!

    • Half the people probably don’t even know what this song is actually about unfortunately

    • @I'm That One I was wondering how long it would take people to realize what he was talking about in this song!! Our lovely politicians

    • @Gypsy Rhiannon yeah, that's why they didn't clap too much. He called out their hypocrisy and bullshit right to their faces for the whole nation to see. I love Eric Church lol! I love Ashley too though.

    • Thomas Cleveland ohhhhh they knew!

  • Eric Church never disappoints!!! His music gets more amazing with each new album. Eric Church rocks!!!

  • Loveeee this song and this version is my favorite !!

  • Mitch we ant either one of the snakes cause the Lord's got us in his hand and I love you and you love me I know that you do and I'm waiting for you to come home for me to have a life together one of these days baby I love you and you just dont see that but I can't make you see that my love is deep very deep in in my heart just wish I could find away to bring you home to me I'll help,you with any thing you need or want while you are here if I got it you got it honey but back to the snakes they are the devil seperts they try to make you do things that ant right cause I work for the Lord's work and you and the Lord are my everything so please come home to me Sweetheart please I'm begging you one more time but ill keep asking you come home to me but I'll keep waiting on you until,you get here remember I love you honey sweetheart I love you everything my world love you love me

  • This song went over so many peoples heads.

    • I knew immediately he was singing about politicians. I had to explain it to some of my friends.

    • @Gerald Hinson very much so. Signs of the times and polarizing societal climates because of politics...there's a lot there. Snakes have been used to symbolize politicians for a long time. Basically any venomous snake will bite and any constrictor will size you up and try to eat you, seems appropriate lol!

    • Amia Harris it went over my head until now...I should know by now that Eric Church doesn’t just write a song unless there is an ass kicking message in it... thank you Eric Church...

    • Amia , you got that right, most people don't know, both biblical and a whole lot political.

    • Amia Harris, I think that happens a lot with Eric Church...I bet he gets tired of explaining his songs to the general masses.

  • This should be the Dbacks new home game winning theme song. Why? Because it's singing about a snake.

  • My only issue with this song is it's not long enough. I want it to keep going! It's an amazing song and the lyrics are very true.

  • This song is so badass, I love it.

  • 1:24, the sound a lapdog makes if you accidentally sit on it.

  • All the dislikes are politicians that know this is true

  • I bet Nancy Pelosi jams to this every morning at 5:30 after she packs a lunch on her way to work. 🤔

  • Nah

  • He just keeps finding ways to top himself with each album he comes out with. I love the throwback sounds on desperate man he's truly one of the best performances to see live

  • Eric church bringin outlaw back baby !

  • What did the copperhead say at 2:40?

  • ERIC CHURCH (2018) - THE SNAKE (Traducción) Rattlesnake said to the copperhead La serpiente de cascabel le dijo a la serpiente cabeza de cobre "You give us vipers a real bad name “Tú nos das a nosotras las víboras auténtica mala fama You prey on the weakest, in fact for no reason Das caza a los más débiles, de hecho sin motivo No wonder we get blamed" No es de extrañar que seamos maldecidas” Copperhead laughed, said "Kiss my ass! La serpiente cabeza de cobre se rió, dijo “¡Bésame el culo! You can bark but there ain't much bite Perro ladrador, poco mordedor You rattle that tail, but it's fear I smell Agitas esa cola, pero es miedo lo que huelo I think you're shaking out of fright" Creo que estás temblando de miedo” Rattlesnake, copperhead Serpiente de cascabel, serpiente cabeza de cobre Either one of them'll kill you dead Cualquiera de ellas te matará pero bien muerto We stay hungry, they get fed Estamos habrientos, ellas se alimentan And don't pass the plate around Y no pasan el platillo Lie by lie, cheat by cheat Mentira a mentira, timo a timo Venom in smiling teeth Veneno en unos dientes sonrientes They just run those forked tongues Sencillamente ponen en funcionamiento sus lenguas viperinas And the whole world's burning down Y el mundo entero se reduce a cenizas Copperhead said to the rattlesnake La serpiente de cabeza de cobre le dijo a la serpiente de cascabel "If you ever wanna make it rain “Si alguna vez quieres hacer que lluevan billetes We could team up, be twice as tough Podríamos asociarnos, ser el doble de fuertes Fear will be our game" El miedo sera nuestra táctica” Rattlesnake said to the copperhead La serpiente de cascabel le dijo a la serpiente de cabeza de cobre "Y'know we were the original sin “Ya sabes que nosotras fuimos el pecado original And I bet you my rattle against your copper Y te apuesto mi cascabel contra tu cobre That the bitch takes the apple again" A que la zorra coge la manzana de nuevo” Rattlesnake, copperhead Serpiente de cascabel, serpiente cabeza de cobre Either one of them'll kill you dead Cualquiera de ellas te matará pero bien muerto We stay hungry, they get fed Estamos habrientos, ellas se alimentan And don't pass the plate around Y no pasan el platillo Lie by lie, cheat by cheat Mentira a mentira, timo a timo Venom in smiling teeth Veneno en unos dientes sonrientes They just run those forked tongues Sencillamente ponen en funcionamiento sus lenguas viperinas And the whole world's burning down Y el mundo entero se reduce a cenizas Rattlesnake said to the copperhead La serpiente de cascabel le dijo a la serpiente cabeza de cobre "Ain't no way they'd win “No hay manera de que ganen 'Cause the mice are sheep and the shepherd's asleep" Porque los ratones (“cobardes”) son unos borregos y el pastor está dormido” And the copperhead said "Amen" Y la serpiente cabeza de cobre dijo “Amen”

  • Arkansans

  • Mr. Church is the Willie Nelson of his generation. And I mean that with the utmost courtesy. Writing and singing your own songs is a rarity nowadays by in large.

    • Takes a certain type with a backbone to make a song about the government.. Not many are bold enough. The way he articulated the lyrics is pure genius

    • Be doesn’t write all of his songs.. at least fully write them. I’d give that to Stapleton. Love em both though

    • I've always considered him the John Cash but same difference Lol both outlaws

    • @Lauren Blaine BAM I'll sure enough look her up , 👍

    • ...and Ashley is the female John Prine, IMO. Watch some of her stuff. AAAA-freakin'-mazing!

  • U.K. Tour please Chief, with Ashley Mcbryde supporting ! Count me in, Eric’s albums get better with each release. The mans top drawer REAL country.

  • Eric your amazing

  • Again 🤤 BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGHT!!!! Oh, and Mirandas!! Never heard of Ashley, fucking stunning!! (Oh Eric.. I look at you, you Sir, you're FUCKING AMAZING. I love this!! STUNNING!)

  • Telling it like it is in a song .. genius ..🔥🔥🔥🔥

  • Awesome performance loved it. ❤️❤️❤️🕶🎸🎤

  • one of the best openings to an album, ever.

  • I don’t get no Devil Went Down To Georgia feel. This is something on the Bayou type music

    • @My Dog Does Tricks he channels Levon Helm all the time, which is fine by me.

    • Jacob Clements I agree, the music and vibe is quite swampy/bluesy/1972 feeling to me-maybe a little Cajun Voodoo-ish ... with the way he says “cop-a-head.”

  • Sounds great when he's sober. I've heard him drunk and it was a waste of a good evening. Haven't paid much attention to him since. Hope he stays on the wagon.

    • I heard Eric and his wife are separated.

    • Ive seen hin drunk and he sand great, could of been something else going on

  • WTF???

  • Satanic song?

  • The Devil Went Down to Georgia

  • 👍👍🤩🤩🥁🎤🎸🎵

  • Good song. Just feel like it needs to kick it up a notch after the first couple verses. Kinda left me hanging.

    • nothing611 Then proceed to track #2 on his Desperate Man album.

  • yeah buddy ...

    • @Ann Brown I'm with you .. Mr.Misunderstood is one of my 5 Desert Island records . His band is top shelf as well .

    • The lyrics in all his song's are priceless. They are so true. But he's hardly on CMT or radio. So I buy the albums. The media is clueless.

  • This is a weird song

    • Only if you are absolutely clueless. Or a sleeping shepherd.

    • It's a metaphor song which is about politics, but at the same time can be interpreted in a kinda good/evil heaven/hell type of way. That's what makes it a genius wrote song.

    • @Linda Gilliam yea I didn't catch that at all lol

    • It's about the American political scene today!!

  • Must be about Donald Trump. Hes the biggest snake in existence right now

    • You tell 'em, @FEATHERED COYOTE!

    • All politicians are snakes. People put more faith and trust into their political party than they do their family & neighbors. Both parties are a joke and neither looks out for the best interest of the people. The interest lies within lining pockets and fake handshakes. Most Americans keep drinking that political koolaid. Put that same trust in yourself and the neighbors that surround you. That's all ya really need

    • Hell, NOT by a LONG SHOT!!
