I forgot LeRoy Van Dyke, Gary Morris, Bill Anderson, Sonny James, Ferlin Husky, Martina McBride, Mark Chestnut, and, I'm sure, several others as well.

legend of the wooly swamp?

Charlie Daniels
The Legend Of Wooly Swamp
Verse 1:
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 went under
They could hear that old man laughing
In a voice that was loud as thunder.

Now that's been fifty years ago an' if you go by there yet
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

Didn't read all 7 pages of the post but old Willie, Red Headed Stranger album and old Linda Ronstadt (sp). I know Willie is alot older than that.

One lyric that gets stuck in my head alot is by Junior Brown "Highway Patrol".

"I have a star on my car and one on my chest, I have a gun on my hip and the right to arrest."

My wife now hates it when I get it stuck in my head.

Maybe buy Jeery Reed (sp) song goes something about a guy fighting or killing alligators and gets hand ate or had hand ate ? I think the title is just the name of the man or boy. HECK I DONT KNOW! Now you got me thinking about it. I think that you and I are both thinking about the same song. Song says something about using son as alligator bait thats how the had was gone? Someone is going to have to help here because now I will be up all night thinking about it.JHH

Beefy I found the lyrics but don't thinks it's what you're looking for sorry. I do remember the song but not much about it or the tune even. Anyway here's the lyrics to Alligator man by Jimmy Newman, 1962.


Mosquitos buzzin' round my head Spanish moss for my bed
There is seldom seen dried land cause I'm an Alligator man

I hunt the gator all night long sell his hiding then I'm gone
I see the belles from bayou shanty love this Alligator man

This bayou country is my home and from this place I'll never roam
For I'm the leader of the clan oh I'm the Alligator man

When I bring my hides to town all the people gather round
They just want to shake the hand of the top gator man

Some people search their world for fame but fightin' gators is my game
And the scars on my hand cause I'm an Alligator man

Top gator man until I die when I marry by and by
A pretty belle from the bayou shant we'll raise a little gator man
