Lyrics

Injuns tell stories with a nervous grin
Of a ghost disguised as a bearded man
He was the wind that whistled through the Georgia pines
Stealing the breath from old Father Time
Some say he was the spirit of a Cherokee
Who swung from the bough of a hangman's tree
Might've been a gypsy or a medicine man
With a cold black heart and the devil's hand

Oh can you feel a breeze
There's something out there moving in the trees

Once was a man they called Crackerbilly
With a long black beard and a one eyed dog
Florida cracker, red man, hillbilly
Lost two fingers to a razorback hog
Lived with the spooks and the snakes in the swamp
If you see his shadow better up and run
Folks round here pray for peace and mercy
When the Crackerbilly lurks you better get your gun

I don't know but what they say
Is the Seminoles saw him in the Everglades
Some thought he was a haunted evil mist
That could steal your soul with a deadly kiss
Hoodoo, voodoo, tricks and charms
God protect us from all harm
Folks round here they stop and pray
When the cloak of night hides the light of day

Oh can you feel a breeze
There's something out there moving in the trees

Once was a man they called Crackerbilly
With a long black beard and a one eyed dog
Florida cracker, red man, hillbilly
Lost two fingers to a razorback hog
Lived with the spooks and the snakes in the swamp
If you see his shadow better up and run
Folks round here pray for peace and mercy
When the Crackerbilly lurks you better get your gun
