Song Lyric Sunday

This week for Song Lyric Sunday our host Jim Adams for has given us the prompt of Ghost/Pumpkin/Trick/Treat/Witch as Halloween inspired theme.

Here are the “rules”:
• Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it contains the prompt words or not.  If it does not meet the criteria, then please explain why you chose this song.
• Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due.
• Make sure you also credit the singer/band and if you desire you can provide a link to where you found the lyrics.
• Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
• Ping back to this post or place your link in the comments section below.
• Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
• Feel free to suggest future prompts.
• Have fun and enjoy the music.

My song is a tribute to a North Carolinian singer/songwriter and fiddle player extraordinaire who passed away in 2020 at the age of 83.

Charles Edward Daniels “Charlie Daniels” was born on Wednesday, October 28th, 1936 in Wilmington, North Carolina. He was the only child of the late Carlton and LaRue Daniels. As a child, the family moved to Valdosta, Georgia and Elizabethtown, North Carolina before returning to Wilmington. His first paid gig as a musician occurred in 1954 in Gulf NC.

In 1967, after the invitation from producer Bob Johnston, he moved with his wife and their two year old son to Nashville, Tennessee, where he began session work including playing on Bob Dylan sessions. He formed The Charlie Daniels Band in 1972 joining the first wave of Southern rock bands.

In 1979 The Charlie Daniels released their 10th album called Million Mile Reflections which included their biggest hit “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”

The song I choose by Charlie Daniels came off their 1980 album called Full Moon that went platinum.

The first song on the album is my choice for this week’s Ghost/Pumpkin/Trick/Treat/Witch prompt. The title is “The Legend of Wooley Swamp”. The song was written by the people below including Charlie Daniels.

The song tells a spooky story that includes references to the GHOST of Lucius Clay. Since Charlie Daniels roots included North Carolina I loved that he mentions Carver’s Creek which today is a state park just outside of Fayetteville NC. Today there is even a Wooley Swamp Farms RV Park in Snow Hill, North Carolina.

Here are the lyrics:

When Charlie Daniels died he had been married 56 years to Hazel Alexander Daniels.

I found a great video that was done in 2007 where he reflects on his life and various musicians. He also shares how he migrated from guitar to fiddle.

Here is my favorite video of younger Charlie Daniels performing “The Legend of Wooley Swamp”.

And They Say The GHOST of Lucius Clay Gets Up and Walks Around

  3. Great pic today! Some things in the world you just can’t explain! YES!!! 🙂 I almost did “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” but was feeling more on the spiritual side.
