Here we go, down the road, uh-huh
Eighty hillbillies in Tennessee, all went drivin' on I-83
They took a turn and they headed west, why they did that, anyone's guess
There were 87 of 'em when they started out, but 5 of 'em died and 2 fell out
One named Buck, his wife was half dead
Should-a left her at home, but he brought her instead

They were heading west on I-28, they spotted a house that looked just great
Four stories tall and 50 yards wide, the hillbillies decided to look inside
They all parked in front and got out of their cars
Took in some moonshine in Mason jars
Got their guitars and fiddles too, started playin billy, billy, billy bayou
They were a-laughin' and a-dancin' and actin' very silly
But what can one expect from 80 hillbillies?
They had a big party and did what they wanted
And never suspected that the house was haunted

80 hillbillies in a haunted house, 80 hillbillies in a haunted house
80 hillbillies in a haunted house, 80 hillbillies in a haunted house
81, if you count Buck's spouse, 81 hillbillies in a haunted house

They were dancin' and a-cussin' and a-drinkin' beer
The hillbillies started to disappear
First it was Luke and Lula and Mac
Then there were more, it was hard to keep track
Dickie Wayne Price, he screamed real hard,
"There's 5 dead hillbillies out in the yard!"
They searched the house and they found 2 more
Hector and Peanut, down on the floor
They found Ebby's head stuck on top of a broom
Found the rest of her in the very next room
Many strange things happened that night, they kept finding bodies left and right

69 hillbillies in a haunted house, 69 hillbillies in a haunted house
69 hillbillies in a haunted house, 69 hillbillies in a haunted house
70, if you count Buck's spouse, 70 hillbillies in a haunted house

Two were attacked by the walkin' dead, 3 got a hatchet right through the head
Six were eaten by giant rats, 1 was killed by vampire bats
Six hillbillies got stabbed with swords, 1 got hit by flyin' boards
Three were 'lectrocuted by an electric wire, and 2 hillbillies caught on fire

45 hillbillies in a haunted house, 45 hillbillies in a haunted house
45 hillbillies in a haunted house, 45 hillbillies in a haunted house
46, if you count Buck's spouse, 46 hillbillies in a haunted house

Downstairs hillbillies danced all night, Upstairs they were droppin' left and right
Drinkin' their moonshine, a hundred proof, 2 hillbillies fell off the roof
Three got strangled by the crawlin' eye, 2 hillbillies just started to fly
Three were eaten by a giant moth, 4 hillbillies got their heads chopped off
Two hillbillies had a heart attack, 1 hillbilly got stabbed in the back
Three hillbillies had screamin' fits, and 4 hillbillies got shred to bits
