Dey wuz cuttin cypress trees an rippin dem up into planks fa da various
lumber yards in south Louisiana.
Everyday fa a solid week at quittin time, Boudreaux would come out da
sawmill gate rollin a weelbarrel full of sawdust an wood chips. Wen he

Wen he didn fine nuttin but sawdust an wood chips he would let Boudreaux
Friday wuz payday an wen Boudreaux pick up his paycheck insted of goin
strate home he cash his paycheck an went to da local barroom
wit sum of his buddies to get a few cool ones.
