My dad was a ornery kid,
From the day he was born,
In a dug out, with a quilt for the door.
Near the Oklahoma land swarm.

He was the youngest of ten children,
His life was excitement and thrilling,
Growing up with nieces and nephews,
Made his young life more fulfilling.

Living on an old dirt farm,
In the middle of an overgrown area,
Where water was hard to come by,
At the bottom of steep hill barrier..

The girls packed water from this stream,
A mile or so from their home,
Daylight they cleaned houses in town,
Small pay checks to share around.

The boys worked hard in broom corn fields,
Each cutting broom corn from sun to sun,
No one worked harder than their mother,
Her work was never done.

My dad being the youngest,
He grew up in this same way,
Cutting the corn from early morning on,
Living a life much like his folks.each day.

When I say my dad was ornery,
That's the truth, trust me,
Four older brothers,told on him,
The absolute, actuality for all to believe.

Mamma tell me just one more time why I can't go ?
What's that your saying, who says so?
You say," Papa says so, he's the boss."

One that ran fast, deep and wide.
I didn't cross over a towering bridge,
