The Bell Witch

Album: In The Shadows (1993)
  • Back in Tennessee, I saw a
    Family haunted by an entity
    It was a tragedy in another
    Century
    Oh...they never would know the
    Evil one that came
    Little Betsy, the age of 12
    Living in a dream
    The first one to scream
    Invisible hands leaving their
    Mark in the dark
    Night after night
    The bell witch attacked and
    Attacked
    Torturing Betsy, until a circle
    Was held in candle light
    Tell us who you are
    Please tell us who you are
    I am the air you breathe
    I am the bell witch
    I am a million years
    I am the bell witch'
    The bell witch decided
    It was the time for the father to
    Scream
    Soon taken ill, never again to
    Leave his bed alive
    Tell us who you are
    Please tell us who you are
    I am the air you breathe
    I am the bell witch
    I am a million years
    I am the bell witch'
    'Goodnight John, see you in hell
    Say bye bye to daddy, Betsy'
    Call the doctor!!! 'I made sure'
    Call the doctor!!! 'There ain't no cure'
    That night john he died
    And the bell witch never came again
    Soon they realized, the witch had
    Given John bad medicine
