Subject: Old Man's Fiddle? Back in the Woods?
From: GUEST

I'm haunted by an eerie ballad and need the rest of it to be released from it, please. It's about a young woman who dies (in the woods?) and her lover (or father?) haunts the place by playing his fiddle. I believe the setting is Tennessee hills, but can't recall. This much is all I can remember:

Back in the woods where the ginseng grows,
Back in a holler where nobody goes,
There lives an old man that you never will see,
Lives in a hollowed-out sycamore tree.
Deer hunters tell of an awful fright
Wakin' up cold in the middle of the night,
From far, far away comes the mournful tune
Of the old man's fiddle in the light of the moon.

Then a bunch of "ner-ner-ner-ner's" follow to the same tune.

My "ner-ner-ner's" didn't ring a bell with anyone, huh?

Refresh. Let's hope it doesn't take 4 years to find this one. Rings a small bell in my old brain, but I can't find it.

Thanks for the refresh. I may be misleading you to call it a "ballad." It is a fast-paced ghost/lover song with a back-hills flair, but very spooky. I've been stuck on the ner-ner-ner's for days.

She blends fifty acres with seed and a hoe
Come fall you get lost in the tall corn rows

She just hollers down the mountain and the boys all run?fast
You might see her truck rolling out of the woods
With a twelve point buck laid across the hood
If you dont get the picture by now
Then wait a minute

However, it seems not to match the lyrics the original poster wanted.
