"Down Yonder" Luke Barker says... Breakfast

Down Yonder - Luke Barker says...      Th' feller that allus has som'thin up his sleeve ain't strong enough t' carry it in his head.
     Remember back when we had fried corn-fed salt pork, an' fried mush, baked 'taters and milk gravy fer brekfast every mornin'.

Translation for city slickers (non-hill people):

     The person that always has something up his sleeve, isn't strong enough to carry it in his head.
     Remember when we ate fried corn-fed salt pork, fried mush, baked potatoes, and milk gravy for breakfast every morning.
