  A BOY’S LIFE IN WEST TEXAS  

Back in Texas where I come from
A day’s work was from sun to sun
That way till everything done
Good and tired as we fell in bed.

In the summer time carrying a hoe
Chopping weeds along the row
With my brother to and fro
Hoping for a thunderhead.

   

Just like boys everywhere
Get out of work, we didn’t care
Long as the truth and sounded fair
Watched eagerly as clouds formed around..

“Whatta ya bet it’s gonna pour?”
One uttered and we’d say no more
Rain miss and make us sore
In disappointment our hoes’d hit the ground.

But luck with us once in awhile
And the rain’s coolness made us smile
As we grabbed the only file
Headed for shelter of the nearest lean-to..

We knew what to do when coming in
Getting wet certainly no sin
If everybody knew where we’d been
Happened just enough to know what to do!
