Legend of Wooley Swamp By The Charlie Daniels Band (1980)


Doug posted the fantastic Swamp Witch song by Jim Stafford last night and it got me to thinking about another great “This is why you never go into the swamp!” song by the Charlie Daniels Band from back in 1980!

The Legend of Wooley Swamp was the second single released from the Full Moon album and reached platinum. I’ll admit there aren’t exactly a lot of places you could truly classify as swamps in my neck of the woods…but there are places close enough for my liking and I was raised on many a story of supernatural happenings by my Grandfather and Grandmother in my youth.

A big thanks to pkbras68 for uploading this song on YouTube!
