By the great Pacific waters
In the village San Diego
Lived the great chief yclept Amos
Mighty sailor, mighty warrior
Known for his Apolliono
Bragged he much and more about it
And one night as he sat strumming
Playing o'er the two or three chords
That was all his repertoire
Suddenly there came a knocking,
Knocking, knocking, knocking, knocking
A very loud obnoxious knocking
Knocking at his new front door.
Only this and nothing more.

Did you know that almost all of Em Dickinson's poems can be sung to the tune of "The Yellow Rose of Texas"? Throw in the odd "Yee-HAW" now and then and you've got the goods on ol' Emily. She was a dab hand at ropin' cattle, too.
