Winfred "The Good Ole Boys were the yard and stable workers. Everybody else thought they were kissin' up to the Boss Man to get those jobs where you don't have to do no hard labor. They'd wait till they were sure that the Boss Man was gone and then they'd hop on the horses and come riding past the field workers just whooping and hollering and showing off".
