    Came across this site by accident this morning and decided to give it a try. Looks interesting and hope it will be.

    CLARENCE CARTER
    "Patches"
    I was born and raised down in Alabama
    On a farm way back up in the woods
    I was so ragged that folks used to call me Patches
    Papa used to tease me about it
    'Cause deep down inside he was hurt
    'Cause he'd done all he could
    My papa was a great old man
    I can see him with a shovel in his hands, see
    Education he never had
    He did wonders when the times got bad
    The little money from the crops he raised
    Barely paid the bills we made
    For, life had kick him down to the ground
    When he tried to get up
    Life would kick him back down
    One day Papa called me to his dyin' bed
    Put his hands on my shoulders
    And in his tears he said
    He said, Patches
    I'm dependin' on you, son
    To pull the family through
    My son, it's all left up to you
    Two days later Papa passed away, and
    I became a man that day
    So I told Mama I was gonna quit school, but
    She said that was Daddy's strictest rule
    So ev'ry mornin' 'fore I went to school
    I fed the chickens and I chopped wood too
    Sometimes I felt that I couldn't go on
    I wanted to leave, just run away from home
    But I would remember what my daddy said
    With tears in his eyes on his dyin' bed
    He said, Patches
    I'm dependin' on you, son
    I tried to do my best
    It's up to you to do the rest
    Then one day a strong rain came
    And washed all the crops away
    And at the age of 13 I thought
    I was carryin' the weight of the
    Whole world on my shoulders
    And you know, Mama knew
    What I was goin' through, 'cause
    Ev'ry day I had to work the fields
    'Cause that's the only way we got our meals
    You see, I was the oldest of the family
    And ev'rybody else depended on me
    Ev'ry night I heard my Mama pray
    Lord, give him the strength to face another day
    So years have passed and all the kids are grown
    The angels took Mama to a brand new home
    Lord knows, people, I shedded tears
    But my daddy's voice kept me through the years
    Sing
    Patches, I'm dependin' on you, son
    To pull the family through
    My son, it's all left up to you
    Oh, I can still hear Papa's voice sayin'
    Patches, I'm dependin' on you, son
    I've tried to do my best
    It's up to you to do the rest
    I can still hear Papa, what he said
    Patches...

    Welcome Percy :cool:

    Yeah, Coultervakia was the good days. But I think you'll find this place is pretty close to on par with it.
