      Kenny Rogers - The Son Of Hickory Holler's Tramp Música y Letra

      The corn was dry, the weeds were high when Daddy took to drinkin' 
      Then him and Lucy Walker, they took up and run away 
      Mama cried a tear and then she promised fourteen children 
      I swear you'll never see a hungry day. 
      
      When mama sacrificed her pride the neighbours started talkin' 
      But I was much too young to understand a thing they said 
      The things that mattered most of all was Mama's chicken dumplin's 
      And a goodnight kiss before we went to bed. 
      
      Oh, the path was deep and wide from footsteps leading to our cabin 
      Above the door there burned a scarlet lamp 
      And late at night a hand would knock and there would stand a stranger 
      Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp. 
      
      When daddy left and destitution came upon our family 
      Not one neighbour volunteered to give a helpin' hand 
      So let 'em gossip all they want, she loved us and she raised us 
      The proof is standin' here, a full grown man. 
      
      Last summer Mama passed away and left the ones who loved her 
      Each and every one was more than grateful for their birth 
      Each Sunday she receives a fresh bouquet of fourteen roses 
      And a card that says The greatest Mom on earth. 
      
      Oh, the path was deep and wide from footsteps leading to our cabin 
      Above the door there burned a scarlet lamp 
      And late at night a hand would knock and there would stand a stranger 
      Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp. 
      
      Oh, the path was deep and wide from footsteps leading to our cabin 
      Above the door there burned a scarlet lamp 
      And late at night a hand would knock and there would stand a stranger 
      Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp. 
      
      Oh, the path was deep and wide from footsteps leading to our cabin 
      Above the door there burned a scarlet...
