All I know is that there isn't near enough about the Loomis Gang on the web. The story of the Loomis Gang would make one heck of a great movie!


Hey Momma Loomis Down in Nine Mile Swamp

With your gang of rowdy robbers Who hardly ever got caught.

From Canada to Pennsylvania Finger Lakes and Vermont

A hundred horses hiding Down in Nine Mile Swamp

Hey Momma Loomis Would you do it again

Teach your children to steal Anything that they can

Something surely tells me In a minute you would

The fun ya’ll had looting Anything ya could

Hey Momma Loomis What cha got under your shauls

Counterfeiting money Stuffed in the walls

Paint the stolen horses Saddle up an steal again

Hey Momma Loomis You were crazy back then

Hey Momma Loomis Your parties were grand

Laden tables on a hilltop Dancing to a band

Wash the leader Grove second in command

Of the whole territory Who thought you was mad

Hey Momma Loomis Ya ain’t the only one corrupt

Bribing politicians To cover it all up

Dead Rabbits and Plug Uglies Terrorizing the streets

Its a wonder how anyone Ever got any sleep

Hey Momma Loomis Constable’s coming for your sons

He’s riding over from Brookfield With some men and some guns

Get your girls to divert them Go hide in the swamp

What a movie this would make I wish we could talk

Hey Momma Loomis Do you have any regrets

Now that your home is burned down And you lost all your bets

Plumb is in jail With a rope burn on his neck

Your family broke and murdered An you’re the only one left
