"Down Yonder" Luke Barker says... Glass Eggs

Down Yonder - Luke Barker says... Glass Eggs      Lots o' fellers remind me uv a hen sittin' on glass eggs, neather one is gettin' anywhere.
     'Pears t' me, if we'd change th' slow signs t' "step on 'er" ya might be able t' fool some in t' slowin' down.

Translation for city slickers (non-hill people):

     There are many people who remind me of a hen sitting on a glass egg, neither one is getting anywhere.
     It seems to me, if we could change the slow signs to "step on it" we might be able to fool some drivers to slow down.
