What a couple of ladies said about him.
( May Kennedy McCord of Springfield, Mo., is the person
he is talking about as I cut the recorder on.)
... says "When did I talk about you?"
"Why," I said, "you talked about me down at Branson the
other day and a feller told me about it."
Said, "Well, did I say anything bad about ye?"
And I said, "No, it wasn't very bad. You said you just
actually loved me."
MCP: What did Ruth Tyler say about you?
Fred: Ruth Tyler said, "The first time I heard you sing,
Fred, the hair - every hair on my head raised up." And she
said, "You orta be over at Nashville a-singin over there. If
you had a started out young, you'ud a been a millionaire now."
She says, "I want to come to yore house and let you tell me
a whole lot a things, and I'll put it in the books."
I said, "Whose book?"
"Rayburn's Ozark Guide," she says.
Like I did you - I don't know how it come about - but I
said, "I'm a Republican."
"Uh-aw!" she said, and she set down.
