Three Toed Sally... Co-Write with Len Wilson

Three-toed Sally
Was child of the swamp
She wrassled alligators
Then she had 'em for lunch
And with every bite
She'd think of long ago
When the gator with the red eyes
Ate her other two toes

Her daddy was a preacher man
Who loved his corn
Her momma couldn't reach him
On the day she was born
They found him in the bayou
With a Bible in his hand
Sipping on the lightning
Singing of the promised land


Deep in the bayou
Livin' wild and free
Three-Toed Sally
Is a Loosiana queen
Three-Toed Sally
Only lost one fight
That red-eyed gator
Nearly took her life

Then one day
As she paddled her canoe
She saw those big red eyes
Staring up from the bayou

Without even thinking
She dove right in
And grabbed that alligator
Right under his chin
That red-eyed demon
All the folks called Joe
Was wishin' he had never ate
That little girl's toes


Deep in the bayou
Livin' wild and free
Three-Toed Sally
Is a Loosiana queen


Now the Queen of Loosiana

Wears an alligator hat

And alligator shoes

With alligator spats

And sitting on the mantle

Looking mean and sly

Is an alligator head

With big red eyes



Author's Notes:

Len sent me some lines with a challenge to write a stanza. We went back and forth several times and this is what happened. Thanks Len, this was fun.

The fact that two people came up with this is crazy. It flows so seamlessly. That's one heck of a song, the funny part to me was I read it 'wishing' there was an audio with a guitar and almost wanted to do it myself, then POW! I find the audio and it sounds exactly like I read it! lol

Well pieced together and sung~
