Don't Go Down To The Quarry lyrics

Rating: 2.27
Song Details
Artist(s)Peter, Paul & Mary
Album(s)Such Is Love

Don't go down to the quarry in the middle of the night
You'll never come back, you'll never be right
We lost Maggie there just last spring
And Big Ben Johnson, he couldn't do a thing
Big Ben Johnson made a bet with Mad Man Mike
That he could cross the quarry in the middle of the night
He got there, 'bout halfway across
When he started sinking down in the red clay moss.
Nearby standin' on the tracks where the trains used to come
Was Mad Man Mike, beatin' on his drum
Laughin' out loud, eyes rollin' in his head
Standin' on the tracks in the Lucifer's stead
With a long red cape and fire in his eyes
He lifted up his hands to the midnight skies
And the thunder start to roll and the lightenin' flashed wild
And Big Ben Johnson start a cryin' like a child.
Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Down, down, down, down
Then the earth gave a shudder, the quarry start to split
Screamin' down went Johnson into the fiery pit
With a laugh that shivered the center of the bone
Mad Man Mike just standin' there alone
He's callin' all the people, to take their turn
And fall into the pit and eternally burn
Down, down, don't go down
Down, down, down, down
Lucifer's caught on the railraod track
He's howlin' at the moon 'cause he can't come back
And in the evenin' while we're sittin' there in front of the fire
We laugh at old Lucifer before we retire
Don't go down to the quarry in the middle of the night
You'll never come back, you'll never be right
We lost Maggie there just last spring
And Big Ben Johnson, he couldn't do a thing
Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Down, down, down, down
(Repeat)2x
