Famous quotes containing the word thar:

    We found it at last, an’ a little shed
    Where they shut up the lamb at night.
    We looked in an’ seen them huddled thar,
    So warm an’ sleepy an’ white;
    An’ THAR sot Little Breeches an’ chirped,
    As peart as ever you see,
    “I wants a chaw of terbacky,
    An’ that’s what’s the matter of me.”
    John Milton Hay (1838–1905)

    He weren’t no saint—but at Jedgment
    I’d run my chance with Jim,
    ‘Longside of some pious gentlemen
    That wouldn’t shook hands with him.
    He seen his duty, a dead-sure thing,—
    And went for it, thar an’ then:
    And Christ ain’t a-goin’ to be too hard
    On a man that died for me.
    John Milton Hay (1838–1905)
