My favorite is the Hearse Song...

Don’t ever laugh as a hearse goes by, for you may be the next to die.

The wrap you up in a big white sheet, from your head down to your feet.

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, the worms play pinnacle on your snout.

They’ll eat your eyes, they’ll eat your nose.
They’ll eat the jelly between your toes...

_Pioneers used to entertain themselves by telling scary stories. At night they might gather in somebody's cabin, or around a fire, and see who could scare the others the most._

The Dream should have been on the list instead of an honorable mention. That one was absolutely terrifying and strange.
