Scary Song Lyrics:

"Mountain Music"
The Lyrics:
Playing baseball with chert rocks,
Using sawmill slabs for bats
Why:
Chert, a rock made of microcrystalline silica (tiny quartz crystals), is quite hard, because quartz is about the hardest of really common minerals. So such a baseball game would be scary. Think about the catcher and fielders who would have to try to catch those chert rocks, pitched hard or hit hard (and sometimes high) by those sawmill slabs! And any batter hit by a chert rock might be hard put to walk to first base.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"The Closer You Get"
The Lyrics:
The closer you get, the further I fall
Why:
It should be "The FARTHER I fall." "Farther" implies increase in actual distance. "Further" implies increase in degree. "I can run farther than Michael" but "He explained further."

"Christmas In Dixie"
The Lyrics:
Christmas in Dixie, its snowing in the pines.
Merry Christmas from Dixie, to everyone tonight.
And from Fort Payne, Alabama, Merry Christmas tonight.
Why:
Refers to the northeast Alabama town of Fort Payne. Also, "Dixie" is a well known sociopolitical / cultural term for a southeastern portion of the U.S., extending as far west as Texas. It may still often be referred to as the southern U.S. or merely "The South", those references still reflecting a time when the country was little explored or settled by "the white man" west of Texas. The term "Dixie" is very much associated with those states that, around 1860, seceeded from the union, formed the Confederacy, and fought for independence until 1865 in the U.S. Civil War. But the Confederacy represented 13 states on its flag, while only 11 actually seceeded, so some of the "border states" that remained neutral in that war may sometimes be included as a part of "Dixie" as well. Today, the cultural distinctiveness of Dixie has been considerably diminished by migration from other parts of the country. Nonetheless, extolling the glory of "Dixie" remains an ardent rallying call among some, often with much more controversial effects than the benign lyrics of this song reflect.
