And so goes on down and got me old piece a-guitar. And I always wanted to play about 'Hitch up my buggy, saddle up my black mare' 'I wanna find my baby in this great big world, somewhere'. And I got chance before he was passed. So, he wasn't even thinkin' about passing. And I shaked his hand once, his brother in Clarksdale Have a brother that work at The Compress. And I said, if I ever lived to get half way grown or grown, I would wanna be just like Charlie Patton was. An after I heard about his death after I got might near grown I would have liked at that time to met the one that caused him to have that dead. 'Cause he was a great boy. And ah, he used to play-a, a number by 'Old blue jumped the rabbit and they runnin' one sold mile' 'When the rabbit fell dead, he cried just like a child'. And you know I felt so good over that I quit eatin' rabbit. 'Cause them rabbit you know do holler when the dog catch up to 'em. He could bit in a newborn baby and they was screamin' and cry'nin'. And ah, after I hear Charlie Patton went on an play that number I 'cide I just stop eat rabbit if had my dog catch 'em and I take away from 'em. And so as I went on to say, you know Clarksdale is a little old small town that-a-way. A lot of good boys been in there.

And so Charlie Patton used to sing that song about 'Hitch up my buggy and saddle up my black mare' And I hear, would just knock me off my feet. I was bare-feeted, little bare-feeted boy. And I like it so well after I growed up the first record I put out when I was comin' up about 'Downtown women sickin' them dogs on me'. I was one that kind-a compare with it. Ah, I think I made a pretty good hit on that! But now, I done forgot I don't play it so much. But at that time he was goin' so good, you know? And ah, if he's got any friends or relative His mother or father wherever might be to hear me sayin' that I just wanna let 'em know that 'Old remember, never do be forgotten'. Things that then went on, you know. So, I gratulates to it. To all his friends, his cousins, to ev'rything. I tried to be the second behind old Big Charlie Patton. He really did. And to tell you the truth The first drank of whiskey that I ever dranken...
