Peter, Paul & MaryDon't Go Down To The Quarry

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
