      The Charlie Daniels Band - The Legend Of Wooley Swamp Música y Letra

      If you ever go back into Wooly Swamp son you better not go at night
      There's things out there in the middle of them woods
      That'd make a strong man die from fright
      There's things that crawl and things that fly
      And things that creep around on the ground
      And they say the ghost of Lucias Clay gets up and it walks around
      
      [Chorus:]
      But I couldn't believe it, I just had to find out for myself
      And I couldn't conceive it, I never would listen to nobody else
      No I couldn't believe it, I just had to find out for myself
      That there's some things in this world you just can't explain
      
      The old man lived in the Wooly Swamp way back in the gurgling woods
      And he never did do a lot of harm in the world
      But he never did do no good
      People didn't think too much of him
      They all thought he acted funny
      The old man didn't care about people anyway
      All he cared about was his money
      He'd stuff it all down in Mason jars and bury it all around
      But on certain nights if the moon was right
      He'd dig it up out of the ground
      He'd pour it all out on the floor of his shack
      And run his fingers through it
      Old Lucias Clay was a greedy old man
      And that's all there ever was to it
      
      [Chorus]
      
      The Crayton boys were white trash they lived over on Parvis Creek
      They were a real snake and sneaky as a cat
      And belligerent when they'd speak
      One night the oldest brother said ya'll meet in the Wooly Swamp later
      We'll get old Lucias' money and we'll pitch him to the alligators
      They found the old man out in the back with a shovel in his hand
      And thirteen rusty Mason jars he just dug up out of the sand
      And they all went crazy and they beat the old man
      Then they picked him up off the ground
      Then they threw him in the swamp and they stood there and laughed
      Till the black water sucked him down
      Then they turned around and went back to the shack
      And they picked up the money and ran
      But they hadn't gone nowhere when they realized
      They were running in quicksand
      And they struggled and screamed but they couldn't get away
      Then just before they were gone
      They could hear that old man laughing
      In a voice that was loud and strong
      
      Now that's been fifty years ago an' if you go back by there again
      There's a spot in the yard in back of that shack
      Where the ground is always wet
      And on certain nights if the moon is right
      And you're down by the dark footpath
      You can hear three young men screaming
      And you can hear that old man laugh
      
      [Repeat verse 1]
      
      [Chorus]
