How 'bout you? How'd you get started?
Sharecrop. First year I lost my whole crop. It was ruined by the hale. Next year, black leg got my cow and pig that I spent all my savings fer. My wife caught cold and she died. Two years later, one of my kids, the boy, he died from Spring Sickness. Maybe I lost 'em both, my woman and my kid, because I didn't have no money for doctorin'. Here I am with a farm, a good one, belongs all to me and is worth lots of money. Only I can't forget what it cost me.
