Personal note:
My parents were born and raised in Hot Springs, Garland County, AR. Although I never heard of them encountering an ape-type creature there, there were many other stories from their lives. Two hardworking country folk who raised a large family. Although I have never lived there, I always felt the ties whenever I visited Arkansas.I have three grandfathers interred there and many cousins. 
Family surnames from Arkansas include Green, Roach, Bain, Boyd, Faught, Jeter, and Crabtree.
It Came From The Woods of Boggy Creek

In the southern part of Arkansas the little town of Fouke
Once held the world's attention for awhile
Just ask the local folks down there what it was all about
They'll tell you all about it with a smile
They'll tell you 'bout an uninvited guest
A frightening monster of the southern night
Who left behind a legend and a town in distress
A town without an answer in sight

And it Came From The Woods of Boggy Creek
A creature that you'd never want to meet
The terrified were many and many didn't sleep
Never knowing which direction it would seek
Today for most it seldom comes to mind
The nightmare of it faded now with time
But history will remember when fear was at it's peak
That it Came From The Woods of Boggy Creek

What is this creature from the river?
How can this nightmare be real?
What other monsters may be out there?
What do those dark woods conceal?

A Hairy monster on a rampage - shotguns blazing in the night
Terror follows those who live there - no one going out 'til morning light
Hunters gather with the bloodhounds - dogs that now refuse to track
Nobody knew when it left them - they only knew they didn't want it back

And it Came From The Woods of Boggy Creek
A creature that you'd never want to meet
The terrified were many and many didn't sleep
Never knowing which direction it would seek
Today for most it seldom comes to mind
The nightmare of it faded now with time
But history will remember when fear was at it's peak
That it Came From The Woods of Boggy Creek

If you're ever down that way, near the little town of Fouke
And you haven't found the answers that you seek
Just remember if there's one thing, there was never any doubt
That It Came From The Woods of Boggy Creek
