Down Yonder - Luke Barker says... Nickel-Plated Watch      Th' country may be sittin' purtty but most o' us would like t' see' er git right up on 'er feet.
     Billy MacGrayle don't carry his big nickle-plated watch anymore cause he jist hates t' give anybuddy th' time.

Translation for city slickers (non-hill people):

     The country may be sitty pretty, but most of us would like to see her get on her feet.
     Billy MacGrayle doesn't carry his big nickel-plated watch, as he hates to give anyone the time.
