    Lyrics

    (Harlan Howard)

    He was born and raised around Jacksonville
    A nice young man 'bout the kind to kill
    But the jealous fight and the flashing blades
    Sent him on the run through the everglades.
    Running like the dog through the everglades.

    Where a man can hide and never be found
    And never have fear of the baying hounds
    Better keep movin' don't stand still
    If the skeeters don't get him in Gatersville.
    If the skeeters don't get him in the Gatersville.

    --- Instrumental ---

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

    But a man can hide and never be found
    And never have fear of the baying hounds
    Better keep movin' don't stand still
    If the skeeters don't get him in Gatersville.
    If the skeeters don't get him in the Gatersville.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Now the years went by and his girl was wed
    His family gave up they thought he was dead
    Now and then the people would say
    They had seen him runnin' through the everglades
    Runnin' like the dog through the everglades.

    Where a man can hide and never be found
    And never have fear of the baying hounds
    Better keep movin' don't stand still
    If the skeeters don't get him in Gatersville.
    If the skeeters don't get him in the Gatersville...
