Everglades lyrics
13 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"In the Everglades there's a way of life, There's a way of peace without stress or strife, There's a natural danger and a man to face, Lincoln Vail of the Everglades."

This theme song was to the tune of "Everglades," a Kingston Trio song of the period, and totally unrelated in its story:

He was born and raised around Jacksonville. A nice young man, not the kind to kill. But a jealous fight and a flashing blade sent him on the run to the Everglades. Runnin' like a dog through the Everglades.

Now, the posse went in and they came back out. They said he'll die and there ain't no doubt. It's an eye for an eye so the debt is paid. He won't last long in the Everglades. A man can't live in the Everglades.

Chorus: Where a man can hide and never be found and have no fear of the baying hounds. But he better keep moving and don't stand still. If the 'skeeters don't get then the 'gaters will. Running like a dog through the Everglades. (Last time - Skipping like a frog through the slimy bog. Running through the trees from the Everlys.)

Now, the years went by and his girl was wed. His family gave him up for dead. But now and then the natives would say they'd seen him running through the Everglades.

Now, he never heard the news on the radio. He was deep in the 'glades so he'll never know. His running and hiding didn't make much sense for the jury had ruled it was self-defense. Running like a dog through the Everglades.

Chorus
