Been down to the cemetery laughin’ for a scare
Just foolin’ around and we just didn’t care
When you’re drinkin’ moonshine and you’re goin’
Well, you’re settin’ up some scardy-cattin’ blues!
Jus’ shiverin’ right straight down to your shoes!
So we worked ourselves up to get freaked out a ways
Went out in them glooms at the end of the day
We was kissin’ and laughin’ just nothin’ but play
An’ then suddenly all-round went cold:
An’ we didn’t feel so bold, no more, no, we didn’t
feel so bold.
Got them smoochin’ spooky terrorizin’ cemetery blues!
Sometimes you hear about Lovers being dead
An’ sometimes they died for a love that couldn’t be
Sometimes you know that the jokes on you
an’ your terrorized out in some cemetery
you’re freakin’ out there in some cemetery!
Well maybe it’s a joke but we ain’t findin’ the fun
An’ maybe darkness makes a fool outa’ every one
Or maybe smoochin’ isn’t cool down cemetery lane
But you can bet your britches we ain’t goin’ there again!
An’ maybe it’s Them Dead that are jus’ jealous about love
Or maybe it’s that hooty owl or that dim moon above
But I ain’t riskin’ nothin’ our here for me and my love -
An anyways I think that somewhere’s in the trees above
I heard my old loves’ whisperin’ revengin’!
I reckon that they’ll get me in the end
So I ain’t gonna test em here, my friend!
Got them smooching’ spooky terrorizin’ cemetery blues!
