Long description

Singer and a friend, rounders, come to Wallins Creek and pick up two girls in their car. "The only thing they want to do, smoke cigarettes and car-ride." He says the girls regularly flag drivers down and go from town to town. The men offer the boys Prince Albert (loose tobacco) but they'd rather have Old Gold (rolled cigarettes). Singers says the girls are pretty, but "if they could get them one cigarette, they'd car-ride every day"
