Listen my blacksmiths
And you shall hear
About our coal meister
We hold so dear

He trucks to Oklahoma
Through rain or snow
When we need coal
He’s raring to go

He digs with his shovel
In coal so black
Dumps fifty pounds
In an old feed sack

He secures the bag
With a wire tie
Then brings it to the meetings
For you and I

We thank you Ron Wells
From the bottom of our hearts
We think you’re the best
You’re a good old fart

Ron Wells

(Per Ron Wells, David Kernodle has joined BOA via a mailed application.)

Stosh has a long gas forge for sale.
