“The Finest Waitress”


"The finest waitress I ever did see Is the handsome girl that waits on me... Polite she is to young and old, I'm sure she has a heart of gold." He praises her work, and concludes "May unseen angels ever be Near the fair blonde girl who waits on me."


Thomas comments on this piece, "Many a mountain lad thinks on verse." On the evidence, this particular mountain lad didn't think at all -- at least with his brain. - RBW
