Everglades (Treat Her Right)

He was a nice young man from Jacksonville Yes, a nice young man, not the kind to kill But a jealous fight and a flashing blade Sent him on the run through the Everglades Now he's runnin' like a dog Runnin' like a dog Runnin' like a dog He's just runnin' like a dog through the Everglades Well they chased him in, and they came back out They said "He'll die, there ain't no doubt. An eye for an eye, that's a debt that's paid, Man can't live in the Everglades!" He's just runnin' like a dog Runnin' like a dog Runnin' like a dog He's just runnin' like a dog through the Everglades Well, a man can run, and never be found Have no fear from the baying of the hounds Better keep movin' and don't stand still, If the skeeters don't get you then the gators will Well the years went by and his girl was wed And his family gave him up for dead But now and then, the injuns would say "Seen him runnin' through the Everglades" He's just runnin' like a dog Runnin' like a dog Runnin' like a dog He's just runnin like a dog through the Everglades Awooooo Well 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 Because the judge ruled it was self-defense Still he's just runnin' like a dog Runnin' like a dog Runnin' like a dog He's just runnin'
