Swamp Night Blues

Updated on January 18, 2019

Down in the swamp on Saturday nights,

you can see such a lot of strange sights.

Me and old Blue had nothing else to do,

So we went out to get some catfish bites.


The pale moon lit up the swamp that night,

It made me have a shiver down my spine.

Those kinds of times, evil was on the hunt,

You sho don't want to know what you'll find.


Refrain:

Ghosts are a flying, Big Foot may be spying,

Saucers are all hovering, darting to- and- fro.

That evil old swamp devil's out on the prowl,

You're part of a spell and don't want to know.


Gators are all bellowing, something was amiss,

Got all those critters upset down in that place.

Moon's hiding behind a big old cloud in the sky,

Darkness taking over, light's gone with no trace.


Loud shrieks are heard, the critters are all upset,

frogs and birds are all hiding down in the scrub.

Next thing you know, a big creature's silhouette,

But it's just a mother Blackbear and its only cub.


Refrain:

Ghosts are a flying, old Big Foot's out spying,

Saucers are all out hovering, darting to-and-fro.

That old evil swamp devil's out on the prowl,

You're a part of a spell and don't want to know.


As a loud growl shatters the evening's spell,

Just what it was to be, you know damn well.

A devil's after you, you've got to get out fast,

Enjoy your last breath, for it may be your last.


Then gunshots are heard, it's your old pal Jeb,

He's come out to save your hide once again.

You leave that swamp on that Saturday night,

Then just chalk one up to Jeb, your old friend.


Refrain:

Ghosts are a flying, old Big Foots out spying

Saucers are all out hovering, darting to-and-fro.

That old evil swamp devil's out on the prowl,

You're a part of a spell, and don't want to know.

Part of a spell and don't want to know...

      Not a place I would want to be on a Saturday night. You painted a good picture setting for the swampy blues.
