THE ARKANSAS TRAVELER (part 1)

He gave us a present, made with memories.
Of the times we remember, growing up with our dreams.
Didn't have much education, but still he knew.
How to love his family, and just what to do.

A man, a farmer, his body was strong.
His honesty so real, he never did no one wrong.
Well he taught by his actions, his words were true.
And his love was seen, by what he would do.

Oh, his life had some hard times, it was dampened with rain.
But he kept the spirit, through even the pain.
His faith unyielding, in God he knew.
His prayers would be answered, and he'd do what he'd do.

CHORUS
Well he'd sing us a song about the Arkansas Traveler.
That farmer's story that came from the fiddler.
           (sprang from his bow)
Think back to the good times and all those melodies /memories
And think about riding on your granddaddy’s knees.

THE ARKANSAS TRAVELER (part 2)

THE FARMER'S STORY:   Voice of Oral Sutton

City slicker: How far is Little Rock old man?
Old Farmer: Well sir, I don't know nothing about Little Rock, but there's a great big rock down there in the corner of my field.
City Slicker: Why don't you play the rest of that tune, old man?
Old Farmer: Well sir, I don't reckon there ever was a fella who could play all that tune.
City Slicker: Well give me the fiddle, I believe I can play that.
