Song Lyrics:
Now, back in the country where I was born
It's on a little ol' hillside farm
My pa raised six kids and one of 'em was me
In the fall of the year when the fields got white
We'd start pickin' cotton about daylight
On Saturday, pa would take it all to town
Then along about dark when everything was still
We could tell it was pa comin' down the hill
'Cause he'd rear back and he'd sound off somethin' like this

Uh huh uh huh uh huh uh huh ha ha haa
Uh huh uh huh uh huh uh huh ha ha haa

We'd go out to meet him with a liner light
'Cause the roads got crooked on a Saturday night
And he'd come on down the hill and he'd stop in the yard
He'd sit up there on that wagon seat
And he'd say, "Boys, I'm hard to beat
Two hundred pounds of steel and twice as hard
'Cause I'm wild and woolly and full of fleas
And I never been curried below the knees."
Then he'd rear back and beller out a chorus or two

Uh huh uh huh uh huh uh huh ha ha haa
Uh huh uh huh uh huh uh huh ha ha haa
That's my pa

Said, "I'm rough and ready and about half wild
And I can whip anybody in half a mile"
'Cause there wasn't anybody else there 'cept me and little Skeet
Said, "I'm just as tough as a hickory briar
And I could dive deeper and came up drier"
And he did it, too. Right off that wagon seat
Well, it shook him up when he hit the ground
But pa got up and looked around
And then reared back and let us have it again

Uh huh uh huh uh huh uh huh ha ha haa
Uh huh uh huh uh huh uh huh ha ha haa
(I B Emerson)
