Thread Name: Who/what is the Great Speckled Bird?
Subject: RE: Who/what is THE GREAT SPECKLED BIRD?
A CD set I just got includes Great Speckled Bird by "Roy Acuff and his Crazy Tennesseeans" dated 1936, which has the second verse

With all the other birds flocking round her
She is so despised by the squad
The Great Speckled Bird is the Bible
Representing the great Church of God

Seems fairly explicit
