GRANDSIR' fell out of his cornfield and broke his neck.
(Snigger away; hit's so!)
Farming the side of a cliff is like that -- by heck!
I've got a call to know.

Out here in Texas a feller's no land to fight,
Nary a rock or slip.
Look at my cotton-yield thar -- now hain't hit a sight?
Strip after level strip?

Wonderment takes me at times I'd be turning back,
Back to that rocky hill.
Quare how for all of my riches I feel a lack
Only Ole Pine Top can fill.
