Earl: Up in Hermitage, one time, they used to have what they calls chin music. So this young fellow, they were doing the chin music, this young fellow he was up in the cupboard into the sugar dish. The old woman she was doing the chin music and she didn’t want to stop, so she said:
John put in a blasty bough, [in the stove]
I’ll put in another put on another,
Tommy get down out of the cupboard
And knock of eatin’ sugar.
Earl: And she kept on going then from that.
