Bobby Bare
Son Of Hickory Hollow's Tramp

(Dallas Frazier)

The corn was dry and the weeds were high when daddy took to drinking
Then him and Lucy Walker they took up and ran away
Mama cried a tear and then she promised fourteen children
I swear you'll never see a hungry day.

Oh, the path was deep and wide from footsteps leading to our cabin
Above the door there burned the scarlet lamp
And late at night a hand would knock and there would stand a stranger
Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp.

When mama sacrificed her pride the neighbors started talkin'
But I was much too young to understand the things they said
The things that mattered most of all was mama's chicken dumplings
And the goodnight kiss before we went to bed.

Oh the path was deep and wide from footsteps leading to our cabin
Above the door there burned the scarlet lamp
And late at night a hand would knock and there would stand a stranger
Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp.

When daddy left then destitution came upon our family
Not one neighbor volunteered to give a helping hand
So let 'em gossip all they want, she loved us and she raised us
The proof is standing here a full grown man.

Last summer mama passed away and left the ones who loved her
Each and every one of us were more than grateful for our birth
Now every Sunday she receives a fresh bouquet of fourteen roses
With a card that says to the greatest mom on earth.

Oh the path was deep and wide from footsteps leading to our cabin
Above the door there burned the scarlet lamp
And late at night a hand would knock and there would stand a stranger
Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp.

Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp...

Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp...

Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp.
And late at night a hand would knock and there would stand a stranger
Above the door there burned the scarlet lamp
Oh the path was deep and wide from footsteps leading to our cabin

With a card that says to the greatest mom on earth.
Now every Sunday she receives a fresh bouquet of fourteen roses
Each and every one of us were more than grateful for our birth
Last summer mama passed away and left the ones who loved her

The proof is standing here a full grown man.
So let 'em gossip all they want, she loved us and she raised us
Not one neighbor volunteered to give a helping hand
When daddy left then destitution came upon our family

Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp.
And late at night a hand would knock and there would stand a stranger
Above the door there burned the scarlet lamp
Oh the path was deep and wide from footsteps leading to our cabin

And the goodnight kiss before we went to bed.
The things that mattered most of all was mama's chicken dumplings
But I was much too young to understand the things they said
When mama sacrificed her pride the neighbors started talkin'

Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp.
And late at night a hand would knock and there would stand a stranger
Above the door there burned the scarlet lamp
Oh, the path was deep and wide from footsteps leading to our cabin

I swear you'll never see a hungry day.
Mama cried a tear and then she promised fourteen children
Then him and Lucy Walker they took up and ran away
The corn was dry and the weeds were high when daddy took to drinking
