Legend of the Spanish Moss

A villain there was named Gorez Goz
Who journeyed here from Spain.
The natives feared him much because
His heart was set on a gain.

Gorez espied an Indian maid
Who filled his fondest hope.
He bought her for a yard of braid
And a little bar of soap.

The Indian maid was sore afraid
And fled this bearded brute.
She sped o'er hill and field and glade
With Gorez in pursuit.

At last the maiden climbed a tree;
The Spaniard did the same.
The lass was bent on being free;
Gorez desired his claim!

She balanced on a slender limb
Then dove into the brook.
She much preferred a morning swim
To this bearded Spanish crook.

The troubles of Gorez begin
His naughty plans are queered,
He snags the whiskers of his chin
The branches hold his beard.

The Indian maiden thus is free
Gorez's life is a loss,
But his beard lives on for you to see
As dangling Spanish Moss!
