I remember the lyrics
26 March 2001 | by (Northeast Ohio) – See all my reviews

I too would love to see episodes of this show. I can still hear the lyrics of the theme song (as remembered by someone who was 6 years old when the show originally aired):

In the Everglades there's a way of life,

There's a way of peace without stress or strife,

There's a fellow there to protect the rights,

Lincoln Vail of the Everglades,

The man on patrol in the Everglades.
