There's A Bear In The Woods Lyrics

by Johnny Cash

Kevin Jones said, there's a bear in the woods
and if you don't believe it,
just ask Wesley Orbison and Lance Johnson,
'cause they saw him, too.
I was drivin' my jeep across the field
and when I came in to the edge of the woods,
I saw Kevin Jones,
comin' down out of a tread.
I stopped my jeep
and Kevin jumped up on the running board
and there it's when he said,
there's a bear in the woods.
And I looked right at Kevin
and I said, now Kevin, tell me the truth.
And he looked at me right in the eye,
he said, I'm not kiddin' you, Uncle John,
he said, there's a bear in the woods.
And if you don't believe it,
just ask Wesley Orbison and Lance Johnson,
'cause they saw him, too.
I kept on lookin' right at Kevin and I said,
now tell me truth, Kevin.
He said, it is, it's a bear, it's a black bear.
He said, it's not a big bear, but it's a bear,
it's a black bear.
I've seen him goin' down the trail there.
I kept on lookin' at Kevin and I got to thinkin'.
Now Kevin Jones said, there's a bear in the woods.
Kevin was seven years old and I'm a lot older than he is.
And I've done a lot of things that he hadn't done.
And one of those things that I've done that he hadn't, is to lie.
So I got to thinkin', if Kevin Jones says,
there's a bear in the woods, who am I to doubt it.
Well, I kind o' grinned at Kevin
and he jumped down off of the running board
and I started my jeep back up
and headed down the road in the woods.
As I went away,
I hollered back at Kevin and I said,
hey Kevin, watch out for that bear in the woods!
