Singing About Bigfoot

Walter Shrum

Singing About Bigfoot

Walter Shrum And Friends Give A Gift To The Community
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher

It’s not very often that someone gives something nice to the Bigfoot community just for the sake of giving. But musician Walter Shrum, along with co-writer Jayme DeFilippo, and producer Harry Metz have done just that in their production called "Searching For Bigfoot." It’s a song and video to honor the existence of our hairy friends, to commemorate the hard work it takes to find them, and give us a reason to chuckle about it besides.

According to Walter, it all started with watching episodes of Finding Bigfoot.

"I started talking to the Bigfoot community, asking questions about Bigfoot. Because I knew nothing about them," Walter told me. "We wanted to make a video, but when we watched other videos, most of them were making fun of Bigfoot, and we realized that wasn’t the way to go.

So after some thought, they decided to get some advice right from the source.

"I talked to a Bigfoot researcher from Virginia," Walter explained. "He said to make it serious with a little humor. That way, we thought the Bigfoot community would back it up."

And back it up, they did. The video has had well over 3,200 hits and climbing. Walter is thrilled with the great response.

"I want to thank the Bigfoot community for backing it up and talking to us."

They’ve been so happy with the response, that they’re getting ready to do another entitled

"Squatch On," this time about the Yeti. So there’s more to come. ********DF

Here's the "Searching for Bigfoot" video




Words to the Song:
 
Verse 1
They say he's a legend or the missing link
Folklore or myth tell me what you think
When you're in the forest & your senses come alive
You can smell his presence in the blink of an eye
 
Chorus 1
Bigfoot Sasquatch back in the woods
Bigfoot Yeti in your neighborhood
Bigfoot Skunk Ape is he beast or man
Bigfoot Windigo livin' off the land
 
Verse 2
Out in the mountains where the wild only walk
You can find a footprint that won't fit a sock
Cryin' in the night a full moon is all you see
You might hear a grunt some knockin' on a some tree
 
(Repeat Chorus 1)
 
Verse 3
Some people have spotted him every now & then
Ya never know if he's lurkin' just around the bend
He stands about 8 foot tall with big red eyes
Is he an animal or just a guy in a very scary hairy disguise
 
(Repeat Chorus 1)
 
Bridge
Searching for bigfoot searching for bigfoot
searching for bigfoot searching ...for
 
(Repeat Chorus 1)
