WRITER BILLY EDD WHEELER, JED PETERS
(Spoken) He rode easy in the saddle. He was tall and lean, and at first
you'd a-thought nothing but a streak of mean could make a man look so down
right strong, but one look in his eyes and you knowed you was wrong. He was
a mountain of a man, and I want you to know. He could preach hot hell in
freezin' snow. He carried a Bible in a canvas sack and folks just called
him The Reverend Mr. Black. He was poor as a beggar, but he rode like a
king. Sometimes in the evening, I'd hear him sing:
I gotta walk that lonesome valley. I got to walk it by myself. Oh nobody
else can walk it for me. I got to walk it by myself.
You got to walk that lonesome valley. You got to walk it by yourself. Oh
nobody else can walk it for you. You got to walk it by yourself.
If ever I could have thought this man in black was soft and had any yellow
up his back, I gave that notion up the day a lumberjack came in and it
wasn't to pray. Yeah, he kicked open the meetin' house door and he cussed
everybody up and down the floor! Then, when things got quiet in the place,
he walked up and cusses in the preacher's face! He hit that Reverend like a
kick of a mule and to my way of thinkin' it took a pure fool to turn the
other cheek to that lumber jack, but that's what he did, The Reverend Mr.
Black. He stood like a rock, a man among men and he let that lumberjack hit
him again, and then with a voice as quiet as could be, he cut him down like
a big oak tree when he said:
It's been many years since we had to part and I guess I learned his ways by
heart. I can still hear his sermon's ring, down in the valley where he used
to sing. I followed him, yes, sir, and I don't regret it and I hope I will
always be a credit to his memory 'cause I want you to understand. The
Reverend Mr. Black was my old man!
