More Dark Country for your October. Who doesn’t like a good ghost story? The South carries a rich history of legends and tales of the supernatural and revenge. Charlie Daniels tells one such tale in this song, “The Legend of Wooley Swamp.”
“Well, if you ever go back into Wooley Swamp
Well, you better not go at night
There’s things out there in the middle of them woods
That make a strong man die from fright…”
The song is set to a great southern rock groove that sets the scene for a scary story from the swamp. As always, Charlie’s voice gives you the chills as he narrates the story of a greedy hermit who loves nothing but money and the robbers who try to take his stash.
