So thoroughly concrete
Set in hearts of Appalachian dwellers
Pour strychnine in open wounds
Lay life on line for Jesus
Read Mark 16 15th verse
Satisfy serpent handlers
Whom shall get bitten
Body swells black & blue
Family places Bible on balloon belly
Poison strong enough to kill
20 men run through faithful veins
Prayers upon the man with 25 copper heads
"And if they drank any deadly thing
They shall lay hands on the sick
And they shall recover"
