A Man Of Words




From: WISE SAYING SECTION

A man o' words an' not o' deeds,
Is lak a gyarden full o' weeds.
De weeds 'gin to grow
Lak a gyarden full o' snow.
De snow 'gin to fly
Lak a eagle in de sky.
De sky 'gin to roar
Lak a hammer on y[=o]' door.
De door 'gin to crack
Lak a hick'ry on y[=o]' back.
Y[=o]' back 'gin to smart
Lak a knife in y[=o]' heart.
Y[=o]' heart 'gin to fail
Lak a boat widout a sail.
De boat 'gin to sink
Lak a bottle full o' ink.
Dat ink, it won't write
Neider black nor white.
Dat man o' words an' not o' deeds,
Is lak a gyarden full o' weeds.
