Okie, Okie

Okiechobee, Okiechobee
Alachy boom
Okiechobee, Okiechobee
Alachy boom

[Chorus:]
Singing Okie, Okiechobee
Seminole, Seminole Sam, Sam
Okiechobee, Seminole, Seminole
Song of the barefoot mailman

(Song of the barefoot mailman)

They tell tall tales down Florida land
About a famous barefoot man
He walked by night and he walked by day
Carrying the mail for the usa

From Palm Beach down to Miami
He walked beside the lonely sea
O'er sand packed hard by the pounding tide
Gun in hand and pouch by his side
(Gun in hand and pouch by his side)

[Repeat chorus]

Okiechobee, Okiechobee
Alachy boom
Okiechobee, Okiechobee
Alachy boom

He trudged the dunes and mangrove swamps
Where pirates hid and the gators romped
Sharks and barricudas swam
Lying in wait for the barefoot man

One gator wise and fierce and bold
Tried to swallow the mailman whole
He fought the gator, mad as could be
And rode on his back to Miami
(Rode on his back to Miami)

[Repeat chorus]

Okiechobee, Okiechobee
Alachy boom
Okiechobee, Okiechobee
Alachy boom

A band of savage Indian Scouts
Ambushed the mailman along his route
He stood outnumbered six to one
Only three bullets in his gun

He dodged them arrows and fired fast
Got two at a time with every blast
All six face down on the coral sand
Trying to stop that government man
(Trying to stop that government man)

[Repeat chorus]

Okiechobee, Okiechobee
Alachy boom
Okiechobee, Okiechobee
Alachy boom...
