Our Congressman Howard Coble Sings for Supper

At last night’s “A Tribute to the Honorable Howard Coble” dinner, the crowd’s favorite moment was when the LEADAH took the stage. Congressman Coble’s favorite bluegrass band, Southeast Express, played several songs, but the highlight was Ole Slew Foot.  That’s Howard singing second from the right.

We spent the night talking about his unmatched energy, integrity, wit, charisma, high school mascot knowledge, declining a federal pension, and genuine care for his constituents.  He is a great man that has truly served the people.

“Ole Slew Foot” written by Charlie Daniels

High on the mountain, tell me what you see
Bear tracks, bear tracks lookin’ back at me
Better get your rifle boys, ‘fore it’s too late
‘Cause a bear’s got a little pig and headed thru the gate

He’s big around the middle and he’s broad across the rump
Runnin’ ninety miles an hour takin’ thirty feet a jump
Ain’t never been caught, he ain’t never been tree’d
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

I saved up my money and I bought me some bees
And they started makin’ honey way up in the trees
Cut down the tree but my honey’s all gone
Ole Slew-Foot’s done made himself at home

He’s big around the middle and he’s broad across the rump
Runnin’ ninety miles an hour takin’ thirty feet a jump
Ain’t never been caught, he ain’t never been tree’d
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

Winter’s comin’ on and it’s twenty below
And the river’s froze over so where can he go
We’ll chase him up the gulley then we’ll run him in the well
We’ll shoot him in the bottom just to listen to him yell

He’s big around the middle and he’s broad across the rump
Runnin’ ninety miles an hour takin’ thirty feet a jump
Ain’t never been caught, he ain’t never been tree’d
Some folks say he looks a lot like me
