ever since that boy walked out in this world
the farmers & cattlemen the bankers &
townfolk of this great land has had two
things they can agree on stand up for praise
on sunday & hang their hats on — not to
mention keep their britches up with in a
dust storm or during a state or local election
& that’s bibles & belt buckles
