Best of album at
Clarence Carter's, "Patches"
The Lyrics:
I was born and raised down in Alabama on a farm way back up in the woods.
I was so ragged that my folks used to call me 'Patches'.
Papa used to tease me about it,
'Cause deep down inside he was hurt,
'Cause he'd done all he could.
This whole song talk about this unlucky guy named Patches. His father dies, his crops get ruined, and he had to do almost everything for his family.
