Jim Reeves Mighty Everglades Lyrics

Last updated:

South from Okeechobee and reachin' to the keys lays the mighty wonder nature made
A hundred miles of jade the mighty everglades
It's beautiful at sunset but oh there's something else that makes bravest heart afraid
A word of things acrawling and athumping and abawling and awadin' in the Everglades
Creeping seeping I heard a million things a weeping
As I gazed into the weirdness of the mighty everglades
Over and over I called oh please come back my lover
But my love is dead or wand'ring in the fearful everglades
Voices calling shadows falling spirits of those who ventured in and stayed
Hear it fear it never never go too near it
For there's myst'ry in the hist'ry of the mighty everglades
Seeping crawling spirits calling sliddin' hidin' my love in the everglades
Over and over I call but now she's gone for ever
And my heart is wand'ring with her through the mighty everglades
A word of things acrawling and athumping and abawling and awadin' in the Everglades
