Old Things – 3 per Day

When a man gits on his uppers in a hard-pan sort of town,
An’ he ain’t got nothin’ comin’ an’ he can’t afford ter eat,
An’ he’s in a fix for lodgin’ an’ he wanders up an’ down,
An’ you’d fancy he’d been boozin’, he’s so locoed ’bout the feet;
When he’s feelin’ sneakin’ sorry an’ his belt is hangin’ slack,
An’ his face is peaked an’ gray-like an’ his heart gits down an’ whines,
Then he’s apt ter git a-thinkin’ an’ a-wishin’ he was back
In the little ol’ log cabin in the shadder of the pines.

    Larry, The words of Robert Service go well with this log cabin. Don’t suppose it had running water or a Loo…Jules

  • Hi Jules
    Love your comments, the only water there was probably running through in the spring time…LOL
