    D
The old man lived in the Wooley Swamp way back in Booger Woods. 
    C
He never did do a lot of harm in the world, but he never did do no good. 
    D
People didn't think too much of him, they all thought he acted funny. 
         C
The old man didn't care about people anyway, all he cared about was his money.
      D
He'd stuff it alldown in mason jars and he'd bury it all around.
        C
And on certain nights if the moon was right he'd dig it up out of the ground.
      D
He'd pour it all out on the floor of his shack and run his fingers through it. 
       C
Yeah, Lucius Clay was a greedy oldman and that's all that there was to it.

      D
Cable boys was white trash, they lived over on Carver's Creek. 
      C
They were mean as a snake and sneaky as a cat and belligerent when they'd speak.
      D
One night the oldest brother said, "Y'all meet me at the Wooley Swamp later.
      C
We'll take old Lucius's money and we'll feed him to the alligators."
      D *(2)
They found the old man out in the back with a shovel in his hand,
      C *(3)
Thirteen rusty mason jars was just dug up out of the sand.
      D *(2)
And they all went crazy and they beat the old man,and the picked him up off of
the ground.
      C *(3)
Threw him in the swamp and stood there and laughed as the black water sucked 
im down.
      D *(2)
Then they turned around and went back to the shack and picked up the money and 
an.
      C *(3)
They hadn't gone nowhere when they realized they were running in quicksand.
      D *(2)
And they struggled and they screamed but they couldn't get away and just 
efore they went under,
      C *(3)
They could hear that old man laughing in a voice as loud as thunder.
            D
And that's been fifty years ago and you can go by there yet.
           C
There's a spot in the yard in the back of that shack where the ground is 
always wet.
        D
And on summer nights, if the moon is right down by the that dark footpath,
        C
You can hear three young men screaming, you can hear one old man laugh.

            D                 C
