Hellhounds bark at the midnight fire
Fog rolls in, and the creek run higher 
They saw him standin', by the railroad tracks
Tonight's the nigh, old Floyd's comin' back

Down, down deep in the ground 
Is where his story stays

Down in Mammoth Cave, is where his body laid
 Walls came in life could not be saved 
No man made machine, could see the things I've seen
Mr. Collins you did not die in vain

 Strangers moved in, brought the circus to town
You know, there's people makin' money off a man underground  Somebody said they weren't doin' him right 
That's why old Floyd's comin' back tonight 

Down, down deep in the ground 
Is where his story stays (so they say)

Down in Mammoth Cave, is where his body laid
 Walls came in life could not be saved 
No man made machine, could see the things I've seen
Mr. Collins you did not die in vain

Down, down deep in the ground 
Is where his story stays (so they say)
