I was brung up in Greenwood SC and when you're brung up in the south you don't think nothin of the words that you use, it just is a natural way to talk and it wasn't until I moved to Florida in my early twenties and was exposed to people from other places that I became aware that we have a different language. My friends and co-workers would rib me about phrases and words I used, that seemed perfectly normal to me. Things like I'm fixin to go to work. Or uwanto go over yonder and see what's all the ruckus is about. Ya'll know what I mean it's not like you ain't never heard it afor. But does that mean that I wasn't brung up right? My mama and daddy didn't raise no yunguns that didn't have no learning.I hightailed it outta here when I was knee high to a billy goat.I was bound and determined I was never coming back to this cotton pickin place. Famous last words cause here I am back and low and behold folks here haven't changed a lot here since I've been gone. They are still honest hardworking friendly folks that still eat fried chicken for supper ( we don't eat dinner here) and sit on their porches and watch what everyone else is doing.I reckon it's always goin to be that way or at least until the big city folks take over and then we won't be so backwards. Maybe that is already happening since awhile back I said I was fixin to, to someone that come in here from outata the area and they made fun of me, can you get a hold a that right here in my ver own hometown! They acted like that ain't never heard of someone fixin on doin something. What's the world coming to I don't know. Beware it's said that if you hang around southerners long enough you'll start talking just like us. Just think if ya'll come here we might revolutionize the English language, not to mention that blackeyed peas and hog jowls might become America's favorite food. So ya'll come on down to Greenwood and see us now real soon awright? I'll talk at you again real soon.
