I took a hike down rocky gorge
A couple of years ago
I called my name to the canyon walls
Just to hear my voice echo
But then I heard an answer, it was such an eerie sound
So I climbed on down the gully
To where it came from down below
I found a cave behind a rock
I called out, "Who's there?"
I heard that chilling sound again
Should I go in, do I dare?
I crawled inside the cavern
Couldn't see a thing inside
Would I find a raccoon or a skunk
Or a hungry bear?
I heard that spooky sound once more
Didn't know what it could be
I knew that I was not alone
But there was no one I could see
Again I ask, "Who's there?"
But the dark gave no reply
So I turned around and climbed back out
When something touched me
My heart pound fast, my throat was dry
I had to get away
So I quickly crawled out to the light
And ran home all the way
I still don't really know
What was in that darkened cave
A monster or a savage beast
It's still a mystery today
- This song is to the tune of Oh! Susanna.
