Lyrics The Legend of Wooley Swamp

Well if you ever go back into
Wooly Swamp well 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
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
But I couldn't believe it
I just had to find out for myself
And I couldn't conceive it
'Cos I never would listen to nobody else
And I couldn't believe it
I just had to find out for myself
There's some things in this world you just can't explain
The old man lived in the Wooly Swamp way back in Booger Woods
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 into
Mason jars and he'd bury it all around
And 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 he'd run his fingers through it
Yeah Lucias Clay was a greedy old man and that's all there ever was to it
But I couldn't believe it
I just had to find out for myself
And I couldn't conceive it
'Cos I never would listen to nobody else
And I couldn't believe it
I just had to find out for myself
There's some things in this world you just can't explain
The Cable boys was white trash
They lived over on
Carver's Creek
They were mean as a snake and sneaky as a cat and belligerent when they'd speak
One night the oldest brother said ya'll meet me in the Wooly Swamp later
And we'll take old Lucias' money and we'll feed him to the alligators
They found the old man out in the back with a shovel in his hand
And thirteen rustic 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
Threw him in the swamp and stood there and laughed as the black water sucked him down
Then they turned around and went back to the shack
Picked up the money and ran
They hadn't gone nowhere when they realized they were running in quicksand
And they struggled and they screamed but they couldn't get away then just before they went under
They could hear that old man laughing in a voice as loud as thunder
Now that's been fifty years ago
You can't go by there yet
There's a spot in the yard in the back of that shack where the ground is always wet
And on certain nights if the moon is right and by that dark footpath
You can hear three young men screaming
You can hear one old man laugh
If you ever go back into
Wooly Swamp well 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
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
But I couldn't believe it
I just had to find out for myself
And I couldn't conceive it
'Cos I never would listen to nobody else
And I couldn't believe it
I just had to find out for myself
But there's some things in this world you just can't explain
Some things in this world you just can't explain
