This guy is amazing!! What an awesome Halloween treat Bruce surprised us with this morning wrapped in A Night With The Jersey Devil!! It's spooky and chilling with a haunting allure that makes you just want to SCREAM!!! I am so delighted that Bruce knows how to celebrate a holiday... but this is so intense that it scares me to the bone!! At times I'm not quite sure if Bruce is the preacher casting out the devil or the devil himself! :o Thanks for a frighteningly wonderful treat!! Happy Halloween to you, too, Bruce!! Now how am I gonna sleep?!

On a more serious note: This is pretty scary stuff! :o

The Jersey Devil, sometimes called the Leeds Devil, is a legendary creature or cryptid said to inhabit the Pine Barrens in southern New Jersey. The most accepted origin of the story as far as New Jersians are concerned started with Mother Leeds and is as follows: "It was said that Mother Leeds had 12 children and after given birth to her 12th child, she said if she had another, it would be the devil. In 1735, Mother Leeds was in labor on a stormy night. Gathered around her were her friends. Mother Leeds was supposedly a witch and the child's father was the devil himself. The child was born normal, but then changed form. It changed from a normal baby to a creature with hooves, a horses head, bat wings and a forked tail. It growled and screamed, then killed the midwife before flying up the chimney. It circled the villages and headed toward the pines. In 1740 a clergy exorcised the devil for 100 years and it wasn't seen again until 1890." "Mother Leeds" has been identified by some as Deborah Leeds, who was the wife of Japhet Leeds. This indentification may have gained credence from the fact that Japhet Leeds named twelve children in the will he wrote in 1736, which is compatible with the legend of the Jersey Devil being the thirteenth child born by Mother Leeds.

Hear me now!
I was born 13th child, 'neath the 13th moon
Spit out all hungry and born anew
Daddy drag me to the river tie me in rocks
Throw me in where it's deep and wide
I go down, I don't die
Hole in the river bottom, I crawl through
Come back kill six brothers and sisters, kill papa too
Sway down Mama, sway down low
They gonna know me wherever I go
Into my bed with her kerosene my mama creep
Set my flesh to burning, whilst I sleep
I burn, burn, burn, till my soul burn black
Black rains fall, I come back, I come back
Get down Mama, get down low
They gonna know me wherever I go
16 witches, cast 16 spells
Make me a guitar outta skin and human skull
Sing you a song like the wind in the sandy loam
Bring you baby out your happy home
Ram's head, forked tail, clove hoof, love's my trail
I sup on your body, sip on your blood like wine
Out world theirs, this world mine
So kiss me baby till it hurts
God lost in heaven, we lost on earth
Sway down Mama, sway down low
They gonna know me wherever I go
Wherever I go, wherever I go
Well I got a brand new lover
I love her yes I do,
She's my one and only and her name is Baby Blue...
