That Crooked Wilier an That Old
By C. H. Meiers.
So you've come to take a picture?
Well you may take one for me
Point your focusin' contraption
Toward that crooked wilier tree
Where th'old crick- looks so dreamy
An In' banks are green with moss
But be sure to. get th' wilier
An' that old white hoss.
I don't mean that tall straight wilier
Standin' proudly like a Queen:
Take th' one that looks so humDle
Yes sir that's th' one I mean.
No get ready. Wait a minute! '
Catch those cattle as they cross
But don't sacrifice th' wilier
Nor that old white hoss.
Yes I guess it would look better
From an artist's point of view;
If you'd take th' tall straight wilier.
It s th' nicer of th' two.
But I'm payin' tr this picture
. (Never mind now don't get cross)
You just take that crooked wilier
An' that old white hoss.
When it comes right down to beauty
That old tree don't "cut much ice"
An' I don't suppose -th' picture
Could be sold at any price.
But I'll pay you well an' thank you
An' I'll never count th' loss
If you take that crooked wilier
An' that old white hoss.
I. don't think th' hoss is fancy
Nor th' tree that shades him now;
But he never shirked his duty
When I hitchedhlm to the plow
An I want 'em both'?jcther
Fer th' mem'ries they engross:
Get that wilier in th' picture.
An' that old white hoss.
When a boy I used to sit there
On th' bank fer hours an' fish
An one day I stuck that wilier
In th' mud an' made a wish
An th' wish came true so" that's why
I insist on bein' boss
An' you'vff got to take that wilier
An' that old white hoss.
