Okefenokee Big Foot'n Blues

Updated on August 19, 2016


On the road, about half-past ten, I saw that creature once again, Big thing,

Driving my old rig, carrying a load too big, headed to Memphis, it to bring.

Swerved on a curve, about to lose my nerve, almost lost my truck right then.

Kept her on the road, though, lost half my load, that's when troubles begin.

Refrain:

Ol Big Foot, scared the life out of me, I'm going back to get him, just wait and see,

Ain't gone bother me no more, what I have in store, not a place he'd want to be.

Got those Okefenokee Big Foot'n Blues


Root beer soda pop, beef jerky, quite a lot, was scattered all over the roadway,

Spent five hot hours in the sun, until my work was done, He was going to pay.

The sasquatch, Big Foot, what ever you choose, not wearing shoes, that day.

Lost five thousand in that spill, at the top of that hill, no more cigars until May.

Refrain:

Ol Big Foot scared the life out of me, I'm going back to get im, just wait and see,

Ain't gone bother me no more, what I have in store, not a place he'd want to be.

Got those Okefenokee Big Foot'n Blues.


Okefenokee's the home of ol Big Foot, his domain, he caused me a lot of pain,

Every where that swamp creature goes, his ugly face he shows, once again.

There I set my traps, iron chains, leather straps, this critter, not getting away,

Root beer soda pop, beef jerky he loved a lot, so that was my bait on that day.

Refrain:

Ol Big Foot scared the life out of me, I'm going back to get him, just wait and see,

Ain't gone bother me no more, what I have in store, not a place he'd want to be.

Got those Okefenokee Big Foot'n Blues.


While Big Foot'n on the swamp's soggy shore, heard that harry beast, his roar,

Through my tent and camping gear, he tore, Don't think I'm going back no more.

Before he left I saw his eyes, like red orbs in the skies, a soda pop in each hand,

Made it back to my truck, must have been in luck, pants so damp, you understand.

Refrain:

Ol Big Foot scared the life out of me, Not going back to get him, it's so plain to see,

Ain't gone bother me no more, what I have in store, swamp's no place I want to be.

That swamp's no place I want to be...Got those Okefenokee Big Foot'n Blues.
