Dave: Thanks so much for trying and

Art: Thanks a million for delivering.

I think Almost all of it is restored to my memory now except for the one mystery line:

The --- is in the ----, and the ---- is in the slack,

I remember it a little bit differently-- something about kicking up gravel and grass in the crack, but that probably is not very accurate. Maybe I'll sing it like that until someone can correct me. I feel its now close enough that I think I can dare try singing it again.

Anyone else have any refinements here? What a great song it is. Once it referred to a part of Appalachia, but now it could represent so many rural and small towns in our country, alas.

I cannot believe how helpful mudcatters have been!
