Third day of wheat cutting
Finally climbed up in the cab
At 10:15pm
I spent the day as Mr. Mechanic

Started at 8:00am
Two bearings on Dad’s combine
Wobble box on mine
Took the truck to Nashville
(Kansas, Dusty, Kansas)
Got back and Dad’s auger hosed itself
Had it fixed by 10:15pm
I got to cut until 10:45pm
Filled up to capacity

Yesterday wasn’t much better
I’m so tired I can’t even remember what we did
Let the good times roll

See that man? He’s just a hilljack.
A redneck republican in a pointed hat.

Gobble, gobble.
