    Lyrics

    (Dallas Frazier)

    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.

    Well, the corn was dry the weeds were high when daddy took to drinking
    Then him and Lucy Walker they took up and they ran 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 neighbors started talkin'
    But I was much too young to understand the things they said
    Well, the things that mattered most of all was mama's chicken dumplings
    And the 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.

    --- Instrumental ---

    When daddy left then destitution came upon our family
    Not one neighbor volunteered to lend us a helping hand
    So just let them gossip all they want she loved us and she raised us
    The proof is standing here in this full grown man.

    Last summer mama passed away and left the ones who loved her
    Each and every one is more than grateful for their birth
    Each Sunday she receives a big bouquet of fourteen roses
    And the card that reads the greatest mom on earth.

    Well, I said that 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.

    Yes, I'm the son of Hickory Holler's tramp...
